wrap it up! an easy and inexpensive neighbor gift

this was a guest post last year…still one of my favorite gifts! wrapping paper gift idea..perfect for neighbors neighbor christmas gift...get wrapped up in the spirit
I’ve got a lot of neighbors. and luckily for me…i love them all most of them.  so I needed to get them all something fabolous. and cheap.
cause i’m fabulous.
and cheap.
not pretty woman cheap
more like thrifty cheap.
I hit up my walgreens when they had a sale on wrapping paper. buy one (at $1.99) get 2 free. So i ended up with 15 rolls for $10. and the worker asked if I had alot of presents to wrap. he he. i’m sure he thought it was a little wrapping paper overboard!

Then i found packs of bows for 97 cents (just saved myself 3 cents each from the dollar store. i just took my cheapness to a WHOLE nother level!)

then i hopped on picmonkey and made some printables

(you can click on them and save them to your computer and print from there!

added some ribbon and a family picture

and wrapped it up!

(i was going to add a roll or tape..but dudes..its started snowing. that really wet slushy snow..and i’m soo not going out in that weather. so just use your imaginations that some scotch tape is hanging there too…..)

  1. Thanks for the ideas! Love your blog and Merry Christmas!

  2. I saw this idea on Pinterest!! I love that someone has actually done it because I really want to but hello I wasn’t trying to spend $24095836!! But now I’m gonna get my butt of the couch (tomorrow) and buy some wrapping paper at the dollar store! Why didn’t I think of that?!??!

  3. Genius!! I know I would LOVE to receive something like the wrapping gift! Fun fun!!!

    Brilliant ideas!!! My neighbors would not be terribly impressed…but then, they are horses and are impressed twice a day when I deliver the hay!! Absolutely perfect idea for “townies”…and I can think of a few folks who would love it too 🙂
