Make a Gift Wrapping Kit | Family Economics

Get out the ribbon and tissue paper because ‘tis the season for wrapping gifts! Recently, I was thinking about a nice gift I could give guests at a small holiday party and the idea of a gift wrapping kit came to mind. I like to give favors that are either practical or edible… and this idea definitely fits into the practical category. It’s the holiday season and no doubt, everyone will have a gift (or two!) to wrap. Why not put together a small gift wrapping kit that friends can use while packaging up their gifts this season?

Follow my simple steps below to make your own gift wrapping kit for a co-worker or friend this season. 

Supplies you will need:

  • One paper box (I used an 8” x 8” x 3” but any size will work)
  • Crinkle paper/Gift basket filling
  • 10 sheets of tissue paper
  • 2 Pencils
  • 6 Small cards and envelopes
  • 10 Gift tags
  • Twine and/or ribbon

Assemble the gift wrapping kit by placing all of the supplies inside the box. You can wrap a piece of ribbon around the box and add a card to the outside of the box for a personal touch.

What other easy DIY gift ideas have you made for co-workers? I’d love to hear them in the comments section below!
