Thoughtfully Wrapped Gifts

Ampersand Design Studio

There's nothing quite like giving a thoughtfully wrapped gift -- but that doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of extra money to make it special. This holiday season, we partnered with Scotch to come up with three great ways to resourcefully personalize your gift wrap with things you might already have at home.

Giving the kids a quick and fun little activity to do while they wait to open the present is a really fun way to prolong the suspense! Whether they love the challenge of a word search or would prefer to color in a motif, this idea is easy to personalize. For one kid we might do trucks, for another some stars, but these evergreen trees are always a sure sign of the winter holidays. The only supplies needed are solid color paper, a permanent marker, crayons and tape. We used Scotch® GiftWrap Tape for the semi-gloss white gift wrap, and Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape to secure the crayons.

For that special girlfriend, why not try making your very own tissue paper pom bow with her favorite colors? This easy personal touch can feel really special, and only takes a couple of minutes. We used Scotch® GiftWrap Tape for the semi gloss chartreuse gift wrap, Scotch® Magic™ Tape for the metallic blue and the tissue pom bow, and Scotch® Double Sided Tape to secure the bow to the package.

For the kids, transforming a simple, solid color package into their favorite friendly creature is a surefire way to make their eyes light up! The polar bear and bunny are so easy to create with just some extra paper, markers and tape. We used Scotch® Magic™ Tape for wrapping the uncoated kraft paper, and Scotch® GiftWrap Tape for the semi-gloss solid white gift wrap. We also used Scotch™ Expressions Washi Tape in pink glitter for the bunny's ears and nose, and Scotch™ Double Sided Tape to attach the paper animal parts.
