If you love giving beautifully wrapped gifts as much as I do, you’ll enjoy these unique DIY gift wrapping ideas! I’ve teamed up with Rocky Mountain Soap Co. and created some pretty ways to wrap their lovely Vanilla Candy Cane Gift Set. Let me show you how to make the perfect, full bow, how to wrap a gift with a blanket scarf, and how to make the perfect gift basket.
Christmas is just around the corner, and I simply can’t wait to wrap up all of the gifts I’ve found for my friends and family. One that I can’t wait to give is this absolutely delicious smelling, limited edition Vanilla Candy Cane gift set from Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Not only are all the goodies inside made with simple, natural ingredients (there’s body butter, lip butter and more!), but this scent is SO amazing and super-duper festive.
I love that these products are made right here in the Albertan Rocky Mountains, and isn’t the art on the box gorgeous? It’s painted by an Albertan couple, as is all of the art on the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. gift boxes.
I thought it would be fun to show you how you could wrap a gift set like this a few different ways to make a beautiful presentation for a loved one. I’ve wrapped up this gorgeous gift box with a beautiful bow, I’ve uniquely wrapped the products up in a blanket scarf, and finally I’ve made a pretty little gift basket. Want to try these ideas? Read on to learn how!
How to make the perfect bow
The box that this Vanilla Candy Cane gift set comes in is so gorgeous on its own that a simple, pretty bow is all you really need to give this as a gift.
To make a full-looking bow, find a spool of wired ribbon. Then, wrap a length of ribbon around the box, cut it to fit, and tape it to the bottom of the box. To make the bow, loop some of the ribbon back and forth while pinching it in the middle. Secure the middle by tying it with a pipe cleaner, and then fluff the loops and trim the ends. You can see exactly how I do this by watching the video at the end of this post.
I finished off this gift with a sprig of faux greenery and a gift tag that I made. You can download this vintage rustic set of Holiday gift tags for free right here!
How to wrap a gift with a blanket scarf
Another unique gift wrapping idea, is to wrap a gift box with a blanket scarf. This way, you’re not only giving a beautiful gift set, but you’re also giving a lovely scarf for the season! You can make your own blanket scarf easily by using this method, or you can purchase one.
Fold your blanket scarf into quarters, and lay your box of gifts on top. Then, carefully bring the scarf up and over the box, and gather it together on the top. Tie the top with a pipe cleaner, and finish off the gift with a ribbon and a gift tag.
How to make the perfect gift basket
Finally, one of my favourite ways to present a gift is in a beautiful gift basket. I love giving themed gift baskets to my friends and family, and I love how this one turned out!
To make this basket, I collected a couple of things that matched the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Vanilla Candy Cane products – a glass container of tea, a red and white mug, and a white loofah. I placed some turquoise tissue paper in the bottom of a galvanized tin, and then placed the larger items (the mug and the glass container) in the center. Next, I filled the rest of the container with the other gifts, filled any holes with faux greenery, and wrapped the tin with a simple wired ribbon bow. A gift tag on the handle finishes this gift. You could cover the basket with some cellophane wrap, or leave it as-is.
I hope these gift wrapping ideas gave you some inspiration for your own Holiday giving this Christmas season!
