If you're like me, the two best parts of gift giving are wrapping the presents and watching friends and family open them. I do all my wrapping spread out over a few weeks so I don't feel rushed to get them done. That way, I can spend time getting each and every one to look pretty and Christmas-y.
Here's a few pics of my wrapped gifts for this year. Hopefully this gives some inspiration for fun ways to wrap your gifts.
Last year I attached green jingle bells to all my presents. This was the year of big bows and handmade tags.
For the tags, I bought a couple packs of labels, but rather than attaching them right to the present, I attached them to other papers and tags, hole punched the whole thing, and then attached that to the present. It just adds a little something extra to the package PLUS then you keep the boxes and bags pretty so they can be reused next year. :-)

That cute red star I purchased in a 6-pack from Target and it's called gift trim. The pretty box that I tied with the red ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
Here's a few other wrapping ideas that I love:
