Whether you’re wrapping a gift for a birthday, Mother’s Day, or even Grandparent’s Day there are several fun ways to wrap these gifts. You don’t have to go to the store and buy plain wrapping paper. In fact, you can wrap gifts in items that you already have on hand. The key is to think about the person’s personality and choose gift wrap that revolves around it.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #1: Tickle Their Funny Bone
If you get the Sunday paper, you have fun gift wrap right at your fingertips. The Sunday comics are a fun way to wrap gifts for people who love a good laugh and for people who are comic book fans. The look that this gift wrap gives is unbelievable. You may want to start hanging onto your future Sunday comics, just in case you have an unexpected birthday party to attend.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #2: Let Them Play with Their Gift
A fun way to wrap gifts for kids is to use coloring book pages. You can either print these online or buy a coloring book. This is so much fun, because we all know how much kids love to be around their presents before its even time to open them. Just give them some crayons and let them have fun until the party starts.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #3: Satisfy Their Sweet Tooth
Do you know someone who loves candy? Then use candy wrappers to wrap their presents in a fun and original way. The easiest way to do this is to buy large candy bars that have a paper wrapper. This way, the wrappers are clean and large enough to where you don’t have to buy a hundred candy bars just to wrap one present. This is not only a fun way to wrap a gift, but its also fun because you have an excuse to eat all those candy bars.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #4: Choose Their Favorite Movies
Are you giving a gift to a movie buff? Then why not go online and print out mini movie posters? Find posters for all of their favorite films and print them out on a high quality paper. This will ensure that the pictures stay crisp. I don’t recommend photo paper though, because this will be hard to wrap with. It looks really good to have the posters overlapping, sort of like a collage.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #5: Give Them Something to Look At
Everyone has a favorite celebrity. The next time you have to give a present, find out who the recipients favorite stars are. Then go online and print out several photos, just like you did with the movie posters. You could choose one star and find several different photos or you could choose several stars. Either way, this really is a fun way to wrap gifts.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #6: Make it Tasty
Does your gift recipient love to cook? Then why not wrap their gift with recipes? Online you can find literally millions of recipes. Go online and find recipes that include pictures and then print them out on a high quality paper. You could also do this with recipes from magazines or an old cookbook that you no longer use. The cook in your life will love this fun gift wrap.
Fun Ways to Wrap Gifts #7: Make the Gift Wrap a Gift as Well
Yes this is outrageous, but if you have money to do so it’s a really fun and amazing way to wrap gifts. For this gift wrap, you will need sheets of $1 bills. Obviously, you will only want to choose this for small gifts and you’ll also want to make sure that the bills can be removed without tearing them. Be sure to tell the recipient that the bills are real, because they may just assume that they are fakes and rip into the package.
