Wrapping your Hand-Made Gifts

The knitting and crocheting is done (or nearly we hope!) and now comes the wrapping. You've put so much effort into creating your one-of-a-kind gifts, they should have a WOW! presentation too! Below are a few of our favorite ideas, some inspired by guidance found in Joelle Hoverson's Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

Adorn your packages with pom poms (use a pom pom maker or follow these directions) or knitted stars (fast and cute!) using the free pattern Stjarna on Ravelry.

Instead of using store-bought ribbons, make a few i-cords in festive colors or matching the gift within to wrap around the packages.

Include handwritten note on how to care for your new garment and a lavender sachet to use when the item is stored.

Wrap the item in tissue paper and tie a bow with yarn leftover from your project.

We know that Christmas is only days away so knitting or crocheting a bag to give your present in is a long shot, but in the future you may want to consider creating a bag to give the gift in.
