Connect with H&H

Am I the only one getting dizzy from all the red, green and gold stripes as I wrap gifts late at night? Let's refocus with some simple gift wrap that doesn't overdo holiday colour schemes and patterns. Check out these two ideas I came across — organic, natural and oh-so-pretty:

This Design*Sponge DIY project uses affordable raffia string and fresh pine as adornment. Keep it earthy! They have two other ideas as well.

Kraft paper is one of those timeless choices that leaves ribbon and accents open to creativity. Twine and a dried chive flower add a natural, yet colourful pop to this cute package.

So consider skipping the psychedelic patterns in favour of a more natural look this year — especially when wrapping late at night.
