Modern Calligraphy Gift Wrap

We’re loving this black wrapping paper covered with white calligraphy. Each roll is decorated with holiday phrases like “Merry & Bright,” “Heaven and Nature Sing” and “Oh Night Divine” written in gorgeous white calligraphy. Pair it with plain twine or dress it up with a wide red ribbon.

Kraft Wrapping Paper

We’re totally loving this year’s wrapping paper collection from Hearth & Home. Pick up a set of kraft wrapping papers patterned with red stripes and white Christmas trees, or grab their gorgeous black and white wrapping papers. We can’t wait to see this gift wrap under the tree!

Personalized Gift Wrap

Personalized wrapping paper is the big thing this year (you can even get wrapping paper with your face printed on it) and we’re seriously obsessed with this option from TinyDreamsDesigns on Etsy. This wrap comes in pink or gray and features the trendy tree-on-a-car pattern with individual names written on each car. If your family uses special wrapping paper for Santa gifts, order this insanely cute gift wrap and give the kids a special surprise on Christmas morning.

Marble Gift Wrap

We’re loving the minimalist Christmas decor this year, and this gift wrap from Chasing Paper fits in perfectly. This year, wrap your gifts in marble or concrete patterned wrapping paper and add a simple gift topper. How cute is this washi-taped evergreen gift topper?

Holiday Lights

Christmas wrapping paper doesn’t get more festive than this! Rifle’s navy gift wrap features a pattern of bright holiday lights on a metallic gold string. This fun wrapping paper adds a pop of color under the tree.

Reusable Wrapping Paper

Save money on gift wrap (and help save the planet!) by stocking up on reusable gift wrap that can be used year after year. This gorgeous Scandinavian-style gift wrap is plastic-free and made from 100 percent cotton material, and comes with an attached cotton cord so you’ll always have just the right gift topper. This eco-friendly wrapping paper comes in small and medium sizes so you don’t have to bother with tape or scissors—just choose the size that fits your gift and get to wrapping!

Floral Gift Wrap

Rifle’s floral wrapping paper makes a serious statement, and we’re completely obsessed with this evergreen and mistletoe design. Rifle’s floral collection features dark and moody patterns as well as bright colorful designs—and we can’t wait to use all of them.

Reindeer Gift Wrap

We’re loving the reindeer pattern on this gorgeous wrapping paper from Rifle. Each reindeer is adorned with a Santa-inspired red hat and a red and white tasseled blanket, and is surrounded by a pattern of dark green Christmas trees and bright red and pink flowers.

We love the simplicity of this pretty gift wrap by Sugar Paper. Patterned with tiny gold metallic trees, this paper will match just about any bow, ribbon or gift topper. This gift wrap will pop against gifts wrapped in solid gold paper or plain kraft paper.
