You know it & so do we: the best part of a gift is giving it. For the last twelve days, we’ve been sharing our favorite Twine & related products in little environmental shots for #12DaysOfTwine on our Instagram, @TwineLiving. (By the way, do you follow us yet? If you like cute dogs, lifestyle shots & other pretty things, you probably should!)

Once you have an amazing gift that you can’t wait to give someone, wrapping it up beautifully is just as much of the fun! We’ve picked out some of our favorite inspiration images for wrapping, decorating & holiday crafting, which we’ll be drawing on this week as we prepare all our presents. We hope they inspire you, too. Happy gifting, & happy holidays!

Love, Twine

 

On the First Day of Twine…

…we chose our favorite stocking stuffers! We love how creative you can get with stockings & manteltop decor.

On the Second Day of Twine…

…we shared our favorite swanky silver swigging things for your holiday spirits. We love how gray & silver gifts wrap up elegantly in shades of white.

On the Third Day of Twine…

…we chose these animal head shot glasses for the men in our lives. & even though they’d never admit it, we know they love put-together presents wrapped with a masculine aesthetic.

On the Fourth Day of Twine…

…we snapped a pic of pretty packages that inspire us to throw a wrapping party!

 

On the Fifth Day of Twine…

…we picked out gifts that come in small packages – which in turn look great with eye-catching wrapping papers & ribbons!

Featured: Anchor Bottle Opener, Key Bottle Opener, Owl Bottle Opener.

 

On the Sixth Day of Twine…

…we picked out a silly, sweet bear bottle holder perfectly festive for the holidays, & dressed him up with European-inspired wrapping ideas! Giving a bottle holder is a great excuse to sneak a bottle of wine into the box as well.

On the Seventh Day of Twine…

…we picked our sparkliest, shiniest mugs, shot mugs & shakers. It’s our hammered copper collection, one we can’t wait to release in full in early 2015! The mug & shot mug are already up on our website, & make the perfect stocking stuffers or boxes to tuck under the tree. To wrap something bright, we love shimmering silver & gold papers & bows that augment the shine. Tie a sparkly ornament on the package, too!

On the Eighth Day of Twine…

…we broke out all the inspiration in our arsenal for a holiday party, complete with pretty slate boards & coasters customizable in chalk. Cocktails, crackers & cheese – what more do you need? We love the idea of bringing the outdoors into our homes with evergreens over white, burlap & black accents.

On the Ninth Day of Twine…

…we shared our trio of kraft & gold wine bags, designed in-house by the one & only Sarah Morris. We’re not sure there’s any color more universally festive than gold, & we especially adore it for cheerful neighbor & hostess gifts around the holidays. The bags will even fit champagne!

On the Tenth Day of Twine…

…we went vintage with our King’s Corkscrew & Crystal Vintage Decanter, both inspired by true antiques. Jen’s favorite style of rustic kraft paper wrapping & tags goes perfectly with these – & really, so many things. After all, (did you know?) it’s what’s inspired our brand!

On the Eleventh Day of Twine…

…we thought this picture perfectly captured our idea of inspired gifting with snowy evergreens in the background, a white vintage car complete with red-ribboned wreath, & a stack of presents ready to deliver to friends & family. We probably can’t get away with this delivery method on our way to visit our loved ones for Christmas, but we can all certainly make our gifts look this good!

 

On the Twelfth Day of Twine…

…Jen came in with these gorgeous handmade candleholders for the team & we couldn’t help but thinking that some of the absolute best gifts incorporate a personal touch. Try these crafts (or one of these ten other ideas) with our Mason Jar Steins!
