Creative ways to wrap Christmas gifts for toddlers
Anyone with a toddler will know that the box the gift comes in will probably be more interesting to them than the present itself, so with that in mind here are a few creative ways to wrap Christmas gifts for toddlers:
- Use a photo of the child as a gift label so they easily know which gifts are for them
- Wrap the gift but leave a fingers width between the layers so little fingers can easily get in to start the unwrapping
- Use plain paper to wrap, draw a Christmas character on the package and include some toddler-friendly crayons so that your young recipient can colour it in before opening
Or why not take advantage of our free gift wrapping service? Available on selected gifts, simply add gift wrapping at the checkout and we’ll wrap your gift in tissue paper and ribbon to compliment the gift.
