    5 ideas for wrapping gifts with wrapping paper

    Minimalist and natural

    Use plain brown wrapping paper and tie the gift together with natural materials such as jute string or thin twigs. Add dried flowers or leaves to give the gift a personalised and natural touch.

    Decorations and stamps

    Use stamps, calligraphy or drawings to decorate the wrapping paper with personalised messages, patterns or pictures. For example, design elaborate patterns, a poem or even an entire night sky with planets. Your gift wrapping is guaranteed to be unique.

    Origami as decoration

    Fold small origami figures or cut out patterns and flowers and attach them to the gift. This gives the wrapping paper an additional sculptural dimension and adds a playful touch to the unusual gift packaging.

    Contrasting tapes

    Use plain wrapping paper and decorate it with a wide ribbon in a contrasting colour. Choose ribbons in bright colours or with interesting patterns. Bows, special knots or gift tags add a particularly creative touch.

    Collage aus Bildern oder Blüten

    Schneiden Sie bunte Bilder oder Texte aus alten Karten, Zeitschriften oder Landkarten aus und kleben Sie diese auf das Packpapier – oder nutzen Sie getrocknete Pflanzenteile wie Blüten und Blätter. Dies schafft eine einzigartige Collage-Optik und recycelt gleichzeitig Materialien.

    Wrapping paper for gifts - FAQ

    Wrapping paper is generally more environmentally friendly than many other packaging materials. It is biodegradable, recyclable and usually made from sustainable resources. The ecological footprint of wrapping paper is significantly lower than that of plastics. Packing paper also performs better than cardboard because it can be customised to the size of the contents.

    Wrapping paper is very suitable for reuse. Slightly creased packing paper, for example, is still good for wrapping parcels. Make sure that it is not heavily soiled or even damaged so that protection and stability are not impaired. Reusing packaging materials helps to reduce the volume of waste and is a sustainable practice.

    Wrapping paper is perfect for a wide range of DIY techniques. Whether using acrylic paints, watercolours, markers or ink - the solid, single-colour surface is the ideal surface for painting, stamping, dabbing or spraying. The sturdy paper is also ideal for crafting using various folding and cutting techniques.

    Wrapping paper is perfect for children, especially when combined with child-friendly DIY ideas. You can make it colourful, decorate it with child-friendly stickers or even draw little toys on the paper.

    In addition to wrapping paper, there are various environmentally friendly packaging alternatives. These include carrier bags, gift boxes and shopping baskets made from corrugated cardboard. The decisive factors are the materials used and the reusability. Corrugated cardboard is considered a very ecological material as it is made from recycled and recyclable material.

    Conclusion: wrapping paper - the versatile gift packaging

    Wrapping gifts with wrapping paper opens up a wide range of possibilities to give free rein to your creativity. But even without imaginative ideas, wrapping paper impresses with its timeless and simple elegance.

    We hope our ideas will help you to add a personal touch and bring a smile to the recipient's face as soon as they receive the gift. Looking for more inspiration? Our 6 ideas for gift wrapping have more suggestions for you.
