With Christmas just a few days away, it’s officially “go time.” In the next few days, I’ll be gathering last minute gifts, writing cards and wrapping everybody’s presents. I love wrapping and packaging homemade gifts just about as much as I love making them. Thoughtful and beautiful packaging elevates the entire gift experience. Luckily, wrapping and packaging presents doesn’t need to be difficult, expensive or complex to make an impact. Below are some of my favorite packaging ideas to inspire you while you wrap up your gifts!
Soap boxes are one of my favorite ways to package soap. They are easy, sturdy and professional looking. Dressing them up with a little glitter is an easy and inexpensive way to really make them shine. All you need is glitter, glue and painters tape. Learn how to make them in this tutorial! Bail jars are another great way to pack up your handmade beauty products. In particular, I love using bail jars for small bath bombs, scrubs and bath salts.
