As Christmas approaches, it’s time to dust off the sellotape and festive-themed paper ready for wrapping season. Or is it? With so many options for recyclable and reusable packaging, as well as pre wrapped gift sets, the options for making your presents picture-perfect are limitless. Want to explore the three main categories for gift wrapping? Pre wrapped, Reusable and Recyclable wrap ideas... let's go! 

Pre Wrapped Gifts

Save time, energy and a whole lot of frustration by choosing pre wrapped gifts this Christmas. With all the hard work done for you, all that’s left for you to do is break open the mince pies and mulled wine. And if you’ve found the perfect gift at allbeauty but it isn’t gift-ready, choose “gift wrapping” at checkout and it’ll arrive ready to go for just £3.95. Here are a few allbeauty favourites to get you started:Bomb Cosmetics Rudolph Nose Best Gift PackNot only is this the perfect gift to have on standby for that niece, aunt or friend you forgot to buy for, but it’s also beautifully presented in the cutest Rudolph themed wrapping paper. The gift pack includes five products including bath blasters and soap.

Reusable Wrapping

If wrapping gifts is part and parcel of your Christmas preparation, you might not be ready to outsource the task just yet. Reusable wrapping gives you even more options for adding a personal touch, with beautiful pieces of repurposed cloth. Spend an afternoon looking for decorative textiles in your local charity shops, then cut them to size and use them to wrap the gifts under your tree. 

Alternatively, if you’re feeling a little crafty, why not start saving up the plain paper and boxes you receive parcels in. All deliveries sent from allbeauty are delivered in plain packaging for this exact reason - so you can reuse them. Simply iron out paper to flatten it, then decorate your paper or boxes using rubber stamps to create something special.  

Recyclable Wrapping

In a perfect world, we’d all have a zero-waste Christmas, but let’s face it, that’s just not always possible. So, if you do find yourself reaching for wrapping paper in the Christmas aisle, look for one that’s recyclable. If it still looks like paper (matte and creasable), it’s safe to recycle.

Top tip: To make your wrapping paper go further and save money, try the “Diagonal Wrapping Method”. We don’t know how it works, but it does.

Now that you’ve got your wrapping options sorted, it’s time to get shopping. Shop all Christmas to discover the latest releases from all your favourite brands.
