As many of us are putting together our favorite gift giving ideas and suggestions, I thought I would take a different approach this week. This week, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and then running out (or shopping from our homes) to grab as many Black Friday deals as we can. Although, I love to shop for gifts, to me wrapping them is just as much fun. I know we have the dollar stores all around us for gift bags, tags and tissue paper and even trim that is of course budget friendly. Even though these suggestions might be more than you want to spend on decorating each gift, perhaps there is a certain someone in your life that you want to make their gift a little more special. I have used all these products over the years and I truly love them. I hope there is one in there that catches your eye and adds a little something special to your gift giving this year.

Photo Frog Basket Accents 30 by 30-Inch Shrink Wrap Bags, Large, Clear, 2-Pack – I make a lot of gift baskets throughout the year, so these always come in handy. Not only are they easy to use, I love that once the bag shrinks over your basket, it keeps everything in the basket secure. Since they are transparent you can see all the goodies in the gift basket. They come in all sizes, but I usually use the large ones and trim if I need to. I add a pretty ribbon or bow on the top and your gift is ready to go.
Merry Christmas Greeting Cards Collection – 24 Cards & Envelopes – These cards are my favorite! Not only do they have Christmas cards, they offer a variety of gift cards and there hasn’t been a set that I haven’t liked. They are made in the USA and all the cards are 100% recyclable. They are very simple in design (which I love) but the inside is left blank to write your own message. They also have great customer service and if you have a question about their product, they are more than happy to help.
5″ x 7″ Clear Resealable Display Cellophane Bags Gift Treat Basket Supplies, Adhesive Closure for Snacks, Cards, Envelope Letters, Candy, Party Supplies (100 Bags) by Super Z Outlet – If you are giving small gift items such as candy, cookies, etc., these bags are great! Not only do they have an adhesive closure, but they are large enough to put quite enough items in. I use these for party favors and attach a fold over gift tag. These can also be used to protect cards and photo gifts.
Thank You Tags, Gift Wrap Tags,100 Pcs Kraft Paper Tags with String, Vintage Wedding Favor Tags with 100 Feet Jute Twine – These gifts tags are perfect to attach to gifts for teacher, coach, therapist, etc., Each tag has “thank you,” printed on it and comes with jute twine to string through the pre-punched holes. This looks great on mason jars, gift packages, favors, etc and add a nice touch to your gifts!
Creatrill 3 Rolls Red Green Kraft ¼” by 492 Feet Raffia Ribbon/String, 164 Feet each roll, packing paper twine for Christmas – I love that these come in Holiday colors and they look so pretty tied around your holiday packages and/or a part of your gift tags. It’s a nice way to add a little color to your package especially if you are using Kraft paper.
Vintage Red Truck with Christmas Tree Wired Ribbon 2.5″ X 10 Yards – to me nothing says holiday like the classic red truck with a Christmas tree in the back. I love this print for many reasons, but this is a beautiful way to put the final touches on a gift or gift basket. It’s the quintessential Christmas pattern that I really love.
Red Truck Jumbo Rolled Gift Wrap- Giant Roll of Fun Holiday Gift Wrap, 67 Square Feet – For all the same reasons I love the ribbon above, this matching gift wrap says it all! I’ve heard there are still people out there who “wrap,” gifts and if you are one of them, this might be for you.
Gift Boutique Large Christmas Fold over Gift Bags with Handles 12 Pack 4 Assorted Holiday Designs for Easy Wrapping Kids Presents Prizes & Goody Stuffers – A few years ago when I was looking for a specific type of gift bag, I came across these. I love these bags!! They are so well made and come in small, medium and large. Each bag has a handle and a Velcro closure. Each one has beautiful art work and they add a special touch to your gift.
12 Christmas Wine Gift Bags with Handle & Tags for Ho\liday Wine Bottle Bag Decorations for Home Table Party – Let’s not forget our wine connoisseurs in our gift giving. These are made by the same company as the bags. What I love about them is how sturdy they are. Again, these also have handles and really are a nice way to present a bottle of their favorite wine as a gift.
Hallmark Signature Pop Up Christmas Card 3D Santa’s House Ornament – I know cards in general can be pricey but what I love about this one is it can also be used as an ornament. It’s one of those cards that you would give to someone special and they will think of you as they hang it on their Christmas tree year after year.
So there you have it! I wanted to share my ideas for wrapping all your goodies up in hopefully unique and interesting ways. I hope one of these caught your eye and if they do, please let me know! Happy Wrapping!
