The last few Christmases, I've had a lot of people to wrap gifts for. Therefor, I've tried to keep my wrapping style streamlined and elegant yet still handmade and rustic looking. My favorite technique is to use simple brown paper tied up with burlap string. To keep this classic look from being too dull, I like add a fun accent or decoration. Two years ago, I tied on pinecones and bundles of cinnamon sticks (as see here); this year, I added minty tie-on gift tags from Anthropologie. How are you wrapping gifts this year?
