Opening presents on Christmas is a lot of fun, but I personally find wrapping presents just as enjoyable. I like to pick a general theme for my presents, usually using gift tags and pretty ribbon, so that I can get all the supplies and wrap everything at once. Here are four simple ideas from around the web.

Sparkly Initial—Wrap your present in a light colored paper (kraft paper might work too), add a striped or polka dot ribbon in a corresponding or contrasting color, and finish it off with the person's initial (instructions in this post). If you have more than one person with the same initial, simply write their full name on the back of the letter so the gifts don't get mixed up.

Paper Snowflake—Wrap your present in brown kraft paper, add a DIY paper snowflake, tie it with string. Simple as that! I would probably tape a small label onto the back to identify whose gift it is.

Merry & Bright—Wrap your present in white paper or tuck it into a white box, add a DIY 'Merry and Bright' gift tag made from kraft paper, and tie it all together with a neutral string. This is such a simple but chic option for most any present. The leaves and cinnamon stick take the present to the next level, but I think it would be pretty without it as well.

Tis the Season—Pick up a few rolls of pastel wrapping paper, make or buy some 'Tis the Season' tags, add a bright colored string to tie everything up, and you are all set.
