Parties are great! …Lots of friends and family spending time together to celebrate a special event or milestone for one of their own. Almost every party has a gift giving aspect. Whether there are gift exchanges, presents for one person, or a “Chinese gift grab” it can be difficult to make your gift stand out from the crowd.


While gift giving has become increasingly dull over the years, there are certain ways to spice it up and put more meaning and personality into every present you give. I’m talking about personalized wrapping paper!


I will now take you through the steps to make better presents, from the outside in!


1)    Decide how you would like to personalize your wrapping paper. You can use recycled goods (like newspaper), blank specialty papers that you can then customize, or you can have your personalized gift wrap professionally printed.


2)    Decide what you would like the theme of the wrap to be – it should be consistent with the type of gift you are giving. Is this going to be sentimental or funny? Reminiscent or goofy? It very much depends on the recipient of your gifts. You would definitely have a different look depending if you are presenting your gifts to a young child, best friend, co-worker, or mother in law.


3)    After deciding on your customization method and your theme its time to secure your materials.

  • Recycled paper is the easiest to acquire. Look for leftover newspaper or magazine. These will save trees, but can still give a first class look.
  • Specialty paper can be picked up from any local craft store, along with the art materials needed to customize it.
  • For a professionally personalized gift wrap – you should start looking at online stores. Search for the terms “custom wrapping paper” or “personalized wrapping paper” and you should find a number of different manufacturers that allow you to use your own pictures and greetings to customize a roll of gift wrap for any occasion! Prices start around $14.95 per roll (1 roll will usually wrap 3 medium size gifts).

*There not much more unique than a roll of custom wrapping paper covering a dozen customizable cookies!

Create your own customized cookie to make an incredible personalized gift that everyone will love!

4)      Give yourself a high five (just as long as no one is watching). You have used your creativity and now your gift is the star of the party. Be prepared for others to ask “where did this come from?”, “how did you make this?”, “can you teach me how to be so unique?”…and it will feel pretty good…!


Reasons for personalized gift wrap:

  • Makes gifts more meaningful
  • Can make up for presents where you “didn’t know what to get them”
  • Will make your gift stand out
  • It will be remembered for years to come
  • Saves trees in most cases (personalized gift wrap is usually saved and kept as a keepsake or it goes into a scrapbook or memory book)
