5 Holiday Wrapping Trends to End All Wrapping Trends
Nature is Nurture.
In other words, take care of your gifts with nature! From pine cones to sticks to balsam (yes, balsam is the correct word– it has been an ongoing debate with the social media team), get creative with your accessories this year. If you can’t find anything at your local craft store, go outside and check the yard (just make sure there aren’t any bugs, of course). Match the simplicity of this nature trend with our black and white matte wrap like we did below. Super chic.
Red and Green is SO last year.
Okay, so not everyone will get behind this trend, but it’s definitely my favorite on the list! Throw the classic red and green out the window and get the whole rainbow involved! Instead of red, go for pink. Instead of green, choose teal or lime green! And yes, the top left wrap is my absolute favorite. I’m glad I work for JAM, since I’m all for every color…
Oooo, so kraft-y!
I could have definitely ‘krafted’ a better category name for this one (ha, get it?), but you get the point. Kraft wrapping paper is SUPER popular this year. A lot of experts are using a subtler approach to holiday wrap this year, and we definitely dig it. I mean, our kraft wrapping sets ARE our bestsellers! (Did you also notice the nature accessories?)
Personalization + Stamps = WIN
Everyone is used to the ‘to and from’ labels (which we sell, so get on that). They say From: Santa, they say To: Johnny (and surprisingly Santa has the same handwriting as Mom, but we won’t get into that). This year, people are letting go of their handwriting (aka the hints our children don’t need) and stamping away! Use a stamp to press your child’s name on one of our tags to get that cute, DIY look!
Who ties the knot anymore?
You know what else is out? Tying the knot! Figuratively there are less marriages but literally too – there’s no need to tie a ribbon into a bow. Weaving is a new trend that’s taking over. And we’re thanking the wrapping Gods because now we don’t have to worry about the bow being tight enough, or if it’s lopsided, or if it looks droopy, or if it’s just plain off. Simply weave as many ribbons as you want, top to bottom and bottom to top. With our amazing variety of colors, you’ll be able to complement any gift wrap you choose! (We added our alternate color trend here too!)
