We also couldn’t resist sharing some fun ideas on making your own gift wrap. So whether you’re giving a birthday, anniversary or holiday present, these ideas will inspire you to take gift wrapping to the next level.
Creative Ways to Wrap Gift Cards
Theme Gift Card Box
Love how Jaco’lyn Murphy presented these gift cards – one for a manicure, the other for a sports enthusiast. These ideas will sure spark some of your own original ideas!
Dress Up Restaurant Gift Cards
Tweens and teens love to eat at fast food restaurants. We love this original gift wrap idea, perfect for the college bound kids in your household. See how Simmworks Family Blog dressed up a restaurant gift card.

Heavenly Homemakers placed a gift card in a mason jar filled with the gift recipient’s favourite goodies. What a fun way to present gift cards!
DIY Gift Wrap
Washi Tape Wrapping Paper
Washi tape is all the rage, but have you thought just how easy it is to make your own customized gift wrap with it? Poppytalk will show you how.
Going Home to Roost achieved the “chalkboard” paper look using black craft paper and a white paint marker. Love the old-fashioned look and feel!
Interactive Gift Wrap
Younger kids will love playing with their gift before they even open it. Heck, they may not even want to rip open this wrap. Love the 3-D look and feel of the gift. Lines Across has ideas for the boy or girl on your gift list.
DIY Polka Dot Paper
This looks so elegant, people will be surprised to learn you made it yourself. It’s easy, let PopSugar show you how.
DIY Gift Bag
Turn an ordinary envelope into a cute gift bag! Love this idea from How About Orange.
This is How to Wrap Money
Coins don’t get a lot of love, but come in real handy at the arcade or on campus at the laundry facilities. Martha Stewart has an easy tutorial on how to make your own Candy Coins.
Chocolate Box of Money
Older kids want good old fashion cash. We love how Life As Mom presented her money gift. Ingenious!
About Wendy Morelli
Wendy loves her 2 kids and her iPhone, not necessarily always in that order. She is an app obsessed mom who loves everything tech and is (unfortunately) old enough to remember the brick Motorola cell phone and the Commodore computer. Her love for technology stems back to the 10+ years of working for technology based companies. Wendy's alter ego, "AppHipMom" has been featured in Canadian Family, iVillage, Women in Biz, EverythingMom, BlogHer and Savvy Mom.
