Choose wrapping paper for your Christmas package decorations

Firstly, let’s start your Christmas package decorations by covering it with creative wrapping paper. These are 9 types of wrapping paper you can try:

1. Craft Paper

Craft paper is a rustic Christmas wrapping paper for any Christmas care package. This paper can be easily purchased and it offers a large surface for your creative customization. You can enhance it with your hand drawings, custom Christmas stickers or even holiday embellishments that you usually use for your house or on your Christmas tree.

2. Plaid Patterns 

If you are interested in a classic look, consider plaid patterns. These iconic prints of Christmas are perfect to be added to your Christmas package decorations. You should opt for traditional red and green plaid, modern red and white, a mix of red, white and black, or just play with different shades of green presents. No matter the hues or shades, using plaid wrapping paper always creates a festive atmosphere, which is perfect for your thoughtful Christmas package.

3. Book Page Wrapping Paper

One of the unique and creative wrapping ideas we want to share with you is using the book page to wrap your care package. You can choose pages from one of your own classic novels or buy vintage novel-like wrapping paper with text printed on it to wrap your gift. 

4. Road Map Wrapping

Just like the idea mentioned above, this idea will make your Christmas package decorations a unique one. Road map wrapping paper is just the perfect thing if your recipient loves adventures. Packages covered in these map sheets will evoke a sense of wanderlust and curiosity.

You’d better choose the specific road map of the destination your recipients always want to reach.

5. Sheet music

For music lovers, what else is more special than a Christmas care package wrap in a music sheet of their favorite song. Tips for you: choose the paper color that matches with the music type, for example, opt for vintage yellow paper if the person you are giving the gifts to likes jazz.

Repurposing old game boards and pieces with your Christmas package decorations. It’s perfect for someone who enjoys board games and a touch of memories because after unwrapping their gift, they can use these papers to play their childhood game once again.

7. Christmas Light Wrapping Paper 

Illuminate the holiday spirit with Christmas light wrapping paper. This cheerful option incorporates colorful string lights, capturing the joy of holiday decorating.

8. Word Puzzle Wrapping Paper

It’s another idea for Christmas gift decorations that recipients can reuse. Word puzzle paper is one of the creative ways to wrap a gift, especially for those who enjoy a good crossword or word search. 

You can enhance the excitement of unwrapping this package by revealing to the recipients that if they solve the word puzzle on the paper, they’ll know the mystery of their gift.

9. Personalized Wrapping paper

Another interesting way to start your Christmas package decorations is using personalized wrapping paper. You can make the unique paper by printing the recipient nickname on it, or place photo stickers that feature their funny expressions. Use transfer stickers to add a name or a special text message to the one you give the gift to, or die-cut stickers printed with a cherished photo of you two.

12. Christmas Light string

It will be a magical touch to tie your package with the warm shine of a mini Christmas light string. Make sure you buy a battery-powered light string because your portable package cannot be plugged into an electrical outlet when delivered to your loved one.

13. Ball Ornament String 

Just like the Christmas light string, add a festive atmosphere to your Christmas package decorations with tiny hanging ball ornaments. Choosing balls of different colors or decorating the plain ones with transfer stickers is also an easy way to make your package more charming.

14. Poinsettia Flower 

Poinsettia flowers are the timeless and impressive art of tying a gift bow. This classic craft requires a little more effort and talent, so if you are new to this art, search for a step-by-step guide to do it.
