Whether you're looking for traditional styles or contemporary designs that do the work for you, or ideas and inspiration for personalising wrapped gifts, find inspiration with our pick of 2018's best Christmas gift wraps.
1. Alpine gift wrap for the skiing fanatic in your life
Made in Great Britain using FSC approved paper, we love the retro feel of this Christmas Skiing Wrapping Paper by Chase and Wonder. Complete with gorgeous illustrations, all with a festive feel, it's the perfect choice for the skiing enthusiast in your life.
2. Choose a traditional festive print
A traditional choice for Christmas gift wrap, you can't go wrong with Christmas florals in red, green and white shades. The Multicolour Timeless Tradition Wrapping Paper from B&Q is part of a larger Enchanted Winter Collection.
3. Give Christmas gift wrap a touch of tropical
4. Add a personal touch to brown paper
Brown paper packages tied up with string are a timeless option for Christmas gift wrap, particularly when paired with pretty ribbon, gift tags and sprigs of festive foliage.
Pick up brown paper and gift wrapping accessories at John Lewis.
5. Opt for a funky (and festive) repeat print
While penguins aren't strictly Christmas, we love the contemporary design of the Penguin Sheet Wrap from U Studio and its wintery feel. Designed using a unique repeat print of illustrated penguins, we love the use of a coral tone to break up the monochrome.
6. Decorate a simple gift wrap with colourful rainbow tape
If you're looking to spruce up a plain gift wrap, invest in colourful ribbons or tape for a fun and festive feel. We love this Rainbow Tape from The National Theatre Bookshop.
7. Keep Christmas trad with a National Trust print
Designed in-house and exclusively for National Trust, the Winter Orchard Berries Gift Wrap is the epitome of traditional Christmas (would we expect any less?!) Available in a gift wrap or gift bag form, there's a style to suit all.
8. Choose personalised gift wrap for someone special
With personalisation all the rage this Christmas, why stop at gift wrap? We love the combination of a Christmas-inspired llama and cactus print (how trendy) with the option for personalisation.
Find the Cheerful Llama Personalised Gift Wrap at The Handmade Christmas Co.
9. A cool and contemporary polar print
Successfully channelling winter vibes through a cool and contemporary design, we love this Polar Sheet Wrap from U Studio. The addition of drawn on glasses gives the repeat polar print a unique and modern feel.
10. Embrace festive reds
Warm red tones are a popular choice for Christmas gift wrap, particularly those with a taste for all things traditional or Scandi-inspired.
11. Keep Christmas gift wrap budget-friendly
Affordable, with a significant Danish influence, Flying Tiger is a one-stop shop for Christmas gift wrap. We love the finish of their Natural Gift Wrap complete with oh-so-Christmassy repeat patterns – we're talking holly wreaths, a very Nordic Father Christmas and gift prints.
12. Choose contemporary copper shades
A popular colour trend throughout 2018, copper tones make a great choice for a contemporary Christmas gift wrap this festive season; particularly when paired with deep blue tones.
We love this Copper & Navy Christmas Gift Wrap Pack from M&S, complete with complementary ribbon and gift tags.
13. Hint at Christmas with a funky, star design
We love gift wrap that hints at Christmas, without being designed exclusively for the festive season. This Stars Gift Wrap Roll from Oliver Bonas is a great example, giving Christmas a distinctly contemporary edge.
