12 Simply Elegant Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

In Japan, gift wrapping is a art form, with a wide range of wrapping paper designs and wrapping styles used – in fact, it’s the giving, rather than the gift itself, that’s of real importance. Alas, this is rarely the case in the UK, particularly at Christmastime when there are so many presents to prepare we tend to just smother them in supermarket wrapping paper and be done with it. Time to do things the Japanese way and put some love and attention into your Christmas gift wrapping this year with a few of these elegant suggestions.
