Hi guys! What do you think of my Christmas gift wrapping for this year? I got the idea from Pinterest and in the end all of the stuff I needed to make it happen only cost around £10 which is pretty much the same as you'd pay for a couple of rolls of actual wrapping paper so I was happy with that. I've piled all of the presents up under the tree now and it looks really sweet and old fashioned, I might tell my little brother that his got posted all the way from the North Pole! How have you wrapped/are you going to wrap your presents this year? What do you think of my little parcels?

  11. I love this, Lauren! "Brown paper packages tied up with string, those are a few of my favourite things". I am a Frugal Frankie (!) this year, I still had 3 rolls of paper from Argos that I bought last year for £5! I have used that instead but oscar keeps biting in to the parcels and the cheap paper rip so easily! NAUGHTY BUM OSCAR! Thanks so much for your lovely comment, the blog community is the best. Wishing you a fabulous christmas and the very best for the new year. I've got time off now so will be catching up with your blog this week. xxxxxxxx

  13. I love this, such a good idea! It's so nice when people make the effort to wrap up nicely, and the bonus is that it looks beautiful under your own tree :)
    Merry Christmas! X
