Why not make this year’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Party unforgettable by creating Christmas gift bags or baskets for your family and friends? A personalized assortment of ribbons, wrapping and treats allows you to get creative in extending the spirit of the brilliant tackiness that is the Ugly Christmas Sweater beyond the end of the party.
With so many decorations in stores this holiday season you’ll be spoilt for choice, and you can include the wrapping materials as part of the gift.
Start with simple robust cardboard boxes – be careful to get the right size, better to overfill a nicely decorated small basket than give a gift that looks sparse and under wrapped. No doubt your Ugly Christmas Sweater Party will be very popular, so make sure you consider how many gift baskets you’re going to need.
Next, the wrapping. Decorative wrapping paper for Christmas gifts that would otherwise be left over after Christmas makes an ideal decorating material. Remember – this is your first chance to really make your gift baskets stand out as belonging to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. The more snowflakes, Santa’s, reindeer, eggnog and decorations you can cram onto the wrapping, the better.
Finally, the decorations. A great way to pad out your gift baskets is with a base of bubble wrap, then decorated with reams and reams of ribbon. Ribbon is an inexpensive and flexible way to tailor your gift baskets regardless of their shape and size. From the garish to the tasteful, an arrangement of ribbon is a means of personalizing a range of gift decorations as diverse as Ugly Christmas Sweaters themselves.
