  • Give the prettiest gifts this Christmas with spectacular Christmas wrapping paper....

    After weeks of finding the perfect gift for mum, dad, the kids and everyone else, it may be tempting to throw each of those presents into a gift bag and be done, but adding the perfect Christmas wrapping paper will make every gift feel more special with a personal flourish – plus who doesn’t love the excitement of tearing off wrapping paper on Christmas morning! 

    Choosing Christmas wrapping paper can make or break the presentation of your gift and no one wants all of their hard work searching for that perfect gift to go wasted. When choosing Christmas wrapping paper, keep in mind the person who will be receiving it. Choose something bright and colourful if the recipient is a child, like wrapping paper with their favourite cartoon characters. Trendy designs like galaxy prints or bold brussels sprouts work especially well for teenagers, and we recommend a pretty repeating pattern for anyone older – like festive messages or snowflakes – with a holographic or foil finish to keep it interesting. You can also choose nostalgic Christmas graphics with jolly Father Christmas for a lovely traditional theme. 

    If you have a bunch of gifts to wrap and want a spectacular go-to Christmas wrapping paper, choose a beautiful neutral design with Christmas motifs in classic red, white, or metallics that would work for anyone. This Kate Slater Christmas geese wrapping paper from Not on the High Street is only £2.95 and we love how it works for any age range and gender, plus the Christmas geese design combines red, white and black for a timeless wrapping paper. Just remember to mix different patterns together to create a pleasant lived-in look under the tree.
