24th December, Santa is coming and you haven’t wrap your presents yet. Don’t worry, here you have some ideas for this kind of situations.
First of all, get out of home and buy some wrapping paper, obviously. My recommendation: choose plain and in neutral colours papers. They are more beautiful and elegant than the ones with a lot of drawings, you can customize them as you like and, the most important thing, the day you forget to wrap your grandpa’s birthday present you will be glad the only leftover is not green paper with brilliant pink flowers.
Kraft paper is always a great option. With a natural touch, a picture or some hand drawings you will get a perfect present.

The shop is already closed and you don’t have any wrapping paper? Don’t panic, you can print it! In the Spanish blog Cosas Molonas they make a compilation of gorgeous wrapping papers ready for printing . Besides, if you need some tags, you can also print them! In this case another Spanish blog, La Bici Azul gives as a selection of beautiful labels.
Your printer has run out of ink? Ok, so then you can get a white paper and use your creativity with some markers.
You don’t have a single paper at home? Not even a newspaper? Come on! In this -extreme- case you will need some cloth leftover or some king of scarf. Have you ever heard about «Furoshiki«? It is a Japanese technique to wrap things with cloth.
You have no excuse with all these options! Your presents will be so beautifully wrapped that they will be afraid of unwrapping them!
