Every year the stress level is highest around christmas. Christmas parties, christmas markets, buying and wrapping presents – the appointment calendar is full. Unfortunately, the stress level is always way too high for the gifts to be unpacked again after just 30 seconds. So what would you think of wrapping ideas that cost (almost) nothing and look much better?

Newspaper or paper napkins

Newsprint or paper napkins are the perfect alternatives to gift wrapping paper. Black and white newspapers look particularly chic. The paper napkins, in turn, add that certain colour. Alternatively, baking paper or all paper bags are also suitable as gift wrapping.

Kitchen towels and old jute bags

Jute bags will always be in fashion – they are simply practical. They can even be used for gift wrapping. Simply wrap the gift in them, tie a cord or string around them and start decorating. The same applies to kitchen towels or other fabrics. There are no limits to the ideas!

Fir branches, fir cones or branches from your own garden

Fir trees always radiate that certain christmassy atmosphere. In addition, they add that final touch to your gift and best of all: they are easy to get! As an alternative to fir branches, you can also use rosemary, ivy or holly from the garden. So simple and yet so beautiful.
