Preppy Gift-Wrapping

Pair a classic Christmas colour with an untraditional hue.

H&H design editor Margot Austin loves these dotted, checked and striped wrapping papers from Ikea. "Of course there's no mistaking this as the cheeriest Christmas red but I chose to pair it with navy, which I think gives it a more preppy vibe than the expected green. For tags I used spice jar label stickers from Staples," says H&H design editor Margot Austin.
