Tuesday Tips & Trends: Let's Get Festive!

When it comes to wrapping Christmas presents, we like to get creative and festive here at The Silver Starfish! So today, we are sharing some of our favorite products and ideas on how to dress up your holiday gifts.

If you are looking to go a more traditional route for wrapping your presents, then we suggest going with gold and silver. You can never go wrong with metallics, especially over Christmas. We personally love this wrapping paper because it matches the classic color combination but has a bit of a modern flair to it. These fun Christmas tags and wrapping paper can be purchased right here at the shop!

Have some extra time on your hands and are looking to do something unique on your packages this year? We love this chalkboard paper idea for under your tree. Writing with chalkboard paint pens is easy to do and it makes a fun project for you and your loved to complete together. Black and white is always a fun contrast to your Christmas tree too!

We also love the idea of creating your own wrapping paper! All you need is some white craft paper, fun paints, and a creative mind to get going. Having each gift with a different design on them will make it even more entertaining Christmas morning to unwrap all the fun treasures.

We are all about craft paper here and love wrapping our gifts in it! Adding a fun ribbon to them or going all out and personalizing them with a painted picture or saying make for beautiful artwork under your tree. And I can guarantee, all of your family members will get a kick out of the fun creations you make! (Some may even be more excited about the wrapping then what's inside!)

This gift wrapping can be made with things you have in your house right now! Instead of going to buy those large Christmas bows (that usually cost almost as much as the actual gift), why not make them out of old magazine clippings. This is an enjoyable way to personalize all of the presents you are giving out this year! Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 11.54.18 AM
