For the Bookworm

For the book lover in your life, make a copy of some of the pages in their favorite book. Using white paper tape, tape the pages together and carefully fold them over to wrap your gift. Add a pretty red bow to your gift to add some color. Bonus points if you got them a book to add to their collection!

For the Music Lover

I'm sure you'll be able to find wrapping paper that has the notes to all kinds of holiday songs in stores this season. If you've got a true music lover on your hands, you may need to kick it up a knotch. This may be a bit difficult, but I'm sure you're loved one will especially appreciate the gesture and attention to detail. Scour the internet and local music stores for the score to their favorite film or the notes to their favorite song. Make copies of those pages, tape them together with paper tape and carefully wrap your gift. Add a red sring bow to your gift as a delicate touch that won't hide the music notes underneath.

For the Fashionista

For the fashonista in your life, a fun and detailed project will definitely make them smile. Cut out images and words that remind you of your favorite stylista from magazines. Also find pictures of looks you think they'll love and their favorite style icons. Arrange the images and words you've picked to create a collage. Paste them onto butcher paper and use it to wrap your gift. I'm sure your loved on won't want to unwrap it!

For the Travel Junkie

For the jet-setter in your life, I'm sure it will be pretty easy to find some kind of map-themed wrapping paper. If you want to add an extra special touch, find a map of the last place they've traveled and use that to wrap your gift. 

For the Kids

A fun and adorable gift wrapping option for kids or those you've only purchased a small token of appreciation for is this reindeer gift wrap idea. Use a small beige washcloth to wrap your gift. Twist two corners of the washcloth to form ears and hold them together with a bow made of ribbon. Hot glue googly eyes and a small red pom pom to the wash cloth to made a cute, red-nosed face. Using brown pipe cleaners, create antlers by twisting them slightly. Add cute small jingle bells for a shiny touch. Affix the antlers to the washcloth by hotgluing them to only one of the washcloth "ears" so that the reciever can still open your gift.
