6 DIY Gift-Wrapping Ideas for the Holidays

The possibilities are infinite when it comes to DIY gift wrap. Instead of the usual Christmas-themed wrapping paper, make your packaging look funky with old maps, music sheets, calendars, and other material to encase your loved ones' presents.

You can also make the wrapping a gift in itself if you choose to wrap your presents in fabric such as scarves or towels, or enclosing your present in a vintage suitcase or jewelry box from a secondhand shop. For a really crafty gift wrapping experience, you can use blank butcher paper or craft paper and use stamps and stickers to decorate the gift wrap before tying the package with ribbon or a piece of twine.
