The festive season is once again upon us, and the Christmas bells are ringing to remind us that the time of year is here again. So dust off the decorations, bring out the tree and turn on those Christmas carols.
Personally, I love Christmas and everything that comes with it. The traditions, the idea of family, peace and love to all on earth. It’s a time for giving and a time for reflecting.
But with the gift of giving, wrapping can sometimes be a challenge. So I’ve put together a little ‘how to’ on some of my favourite present packaging ideas, hopefully to make the act of wrapping easier for all.
Here’s a list of tools and utensils you can purchase on our website to help you get started from the Cristina Re DIY Collection:

With metallics being very much ‘on trend’ our glamorous glittery gold and shimmering silver ready made papers make the perfect statement and add an eyre of sophistication, beauty and luxury to any present. Use these to to adorn the wrapping, or simply add a strip for a fun, eye-catching look. If too much bling is not your thing, combine these with simple cost effective silver and gold wrapping – currently available at Spotlight and Lincraft.
Gorgeous grosgrains, textured tassels, lustrous lace adhesive tape, bountiful bows – there is an abundance of ideas to use our signature accessories to make that present extra special for someone you love.
So embrace the art of wrapping this festive season and remember it isn’t how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.
