Wrapped up

So its my favourite time of your year and althought I could sit and write a post on what to buy your brothers, sisters, bestsfriends goldfish its already been done and pretty well by the vloggers out there so I decided to focus on another aspect of Christmas which I love - wrapping! I love the look of perfectly wrapped presents under the tree and I love choosing a theme or colour scheme each year (yes I just admitted to doing that) and making sure the wrapping is as good as whats inside!

So I thought I would do a little post on how I wrapped my presents this year to hopefully find other wrapping geeks out there and inspire those of you who aren't quite as enthusiastic as me!
The theme I picked this year is traditional, so think brown paper packages, red ribbon and fairisle print tissue paper.

I bought most of all of my wrapping this year from Marks and Spencers, this is what I bought:

      Luxury Ribbon Wrap Set - £4.50                       Santa Sleigh Print Wrapping Paper - £3.50

I also bought a 3 pack red and white patterned ribbon set, which I can't seem to find online, but I know is still in stores and can be seen in the below pictures, a further pack of tags, some brown paper and finally a pack of candy candy canes from Asda for £1.50 for 12 to create my wrapping masterpiece! Heres the result!

If you like the above look heres a few other bits and bobs you can get to add your own twist on this look:

Festive Tape and Wrap Set - £13                                  Christmas Ribbon Set - £5.99

Let me know if you liked this post and if this is something that interested you as I'm planning a few more festive posts in the lead up to Christmas so I can do another colour way or wrapping ideas or anything else your interested in!
