MINIMALIST GIFT WRAPPING

I am late with my gift getting, as usual! To be honest, I am late with everything holiday related. I have boiled it down to this pregnancy being a bit harder than my first one. I am currently getting treatment for a pelvic region living its own life, it is all over the place. On top of that, the lack of sleep, all I do is twist and turn. So at the end of the day I am left with next to no energy, all is spent getting my pregnancy affairs together when the little one is in day care. When he comes home, all my time is devoted to him from the moment I pick him up till he falls asleep. The few hours I have left in a day is then spent planning the next couple of days, cleaning up the days mess and trying to find a comfortable position to rest in. Not much time left for holiday hunting! But, everything is getting closer, so I need to get my stuff together ASAP. So this weekend I am doing this years Christmas card, and next week is devoted to getting and wrapping all of the gifts before we leave for the holidays on Friday.

Getting gifts for everyone is one of my favorite things about Christmas, that and the wrapping of the gifts. Right now I am looking for some good wrapping ideas. Here is a collection of some great minimalistic wrapping ideas I´ve come across hauling through the isles of Pinterest. I especially love the use of fresh greens in the wrapping, it´s all about the details!

LAST MINUTE: WRAP IT UP

I am always on the look out for some nice gift wrapping ideas, even though I am not always great at following through on those ideas. I still have a few small gifts to wrap up before the big day tomorrow, so here is a last minute wrap inspiration rant. Good to keep around for future birthdays and other events where handing off a gift is happening.

Happy Christmas!

WRAP IT UP

And I’m back! For some reason time seems to pass like lightning these days, may be because of the lack of sunlight – or maybe I’ve just got more on my plate than usual? This year, as every year, I haven’t even had the time to consider what to get friends and family for christmas. I’m getting on it this weekend, I have promised myself that… I love giving gifts, and I try my hardest to make every gift a personal one. Which means I do my best to put as much effort into gathering ideas, hunting for the right thing etc. Then comes the wrapping of the gift. I really enjoy putting a lot of heart into wrapping gifts for people, maybe it is because I am a fan of the aesthetical things in life, maybe it’s because it’s about handing over something personal or maybe it is all about giving myself more things to do when I’m on my week off work? Who knows? Anyways, I have gathered up a bundle of visual aid to help me through the wrapping process this year!
