Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Saturday Sweets

Are you finished with your holiday shopping yet? I'm not quite finished, but when I am I will take an evening for myself and shut myself in the basement and wrap all the gifts, which for me is one of the best things about christmas. I just love wrapping gifts! Some years ago I worked at a department store just before christmas, and they were famous for their beautifully wrapped packages, so I learned quite a few tricks there which I still use sometimes. But I get new ideas every year, and often match all the gifts so they will look good under the tree. Do you do that too? What theme will you have for your packages this year? I'm thinking newspapers, brown craft paper, white paint, white and black ribbon...

    I'm a stickler for brown craft paper when wrapping gifts, but those gray packages in those photos are beautiful! I might be a convert!

    Very beautiful. I use sheet music from charity shops with silver or pewter ribbon.

    I think I will be using black paper, lace ribbon and white sprayed branches and leaves.
