Beautiful Budget Friendly Gift Wrapping Ideas

This post on beautiful budget friendly gift wrapping ideas was sponsored by Dollar Tree.

I think taking the time to beautifully wrap a gift makes gift giving much more special. After all, you’ve spent time and energy picking out the perfect gift, so it deserves the perfect gift wrap. But what if you just finished Christmas shopping for your entire family and there is a closet or trunk full of gifts that need to be wrapped? A beautifully wrapped doesn’t need to be expensive. All of the gifts you see in this post were wrapped with items found exclusively at Dollar Tree. I found everything I need to wrap beautiful packages, including: wrapping paper, ornaments, pics, ribbon, tags, and bows.

I said everything came from Dollar Tree, in case you thought you read that wrong. If you haven’t visited your neighborhood Dollar Tree or checked out recently, you might want check out what they have for the holidays.

You’ll find a large selection of holiday wrapping paper, at a fraction of the price you pay in other stores. I taped some fun snowflakes to the package above. Dollar Tree had the snowflakes in a package of 6 for $1.

I love putting big beautiful bows on packages. They are simple to make. When matching your ribbon to wrapping paper, don’t worry about everything matching perfectly. Sometimes, it’s that little bit of contrast that makes it extra special.

Push a holiday floral pick into your bow for an extra special touch. Dollar Tree has beautiful Christmas floral pics 2/$1.

You can’t go wrong with gold or silver when choosing holiday gift wrap.

The gold flower above is actually an ornament that I picked up. I hot glued it into the center of a basic bow. I especially like to add small ornaments to packages.

A small string of battery operated LED lights was added to my snowman package above. I hid the battery pack by tucking it into a small stocking. This package is so beautiful when the lights are dimmed.

If you’re not one to make your own bows, no worries. Dollar Tree has a beautiful selection of ready made bows like the silver one I put on my granddaughter’s gift wrapped in Justin Bieber paper. She is head over heels for Justin, so she will probably be more excited over the gift wrap than the gift itself. I added a couple of candy ornaments to this package for some extra bling. Not that Justin Bieber needs any extra bling.

Are you ready to hop into the car and head to Dollar Tree now?

    These are very creative gift wrapping ideas. Also, I didn’t know the Dollar Store sold wrapping paper etc. Thank you for this review it is very informative.

    I mostly get my gift supplies from Dollar Tree, too. Their supplies are inexpensive and beautiful. Since I can’t wrap, I buy gift bags instead. I wish I could wrap gifts beautifully as you do, though. That’s really nice! :)

    What great ideas! We just had a Dollar Tree near our house that I haven’t had a chance to check out yet … I think I’ll have to head over and see what they have to offer! I love how the ornaments look on the gifts – what a nice touch.

    Yes I am! I love the Dollar Tree and and really love that the gift wrapping choices are so pretty that no one would know they came from the Dollar Tree. :)

    These are SO beautiful! You guys do it all – cook, bake, decorate! I especially love the pine cone, it looks so nice! (And while I’m not a fan of Bieber, I can see how a tween would love this!). Gotta hurry and get myself to DollarTree!

    Talk about WOW factor!!! These are absolutely gorgeous. It’s amazing that you could create such luxurious wrapping at great affordable prices. You have definitely inspired me to go beyond my usual just wrap it. I haven’t done most of my wrapping yet so I still have time to check out Dollar Tree for more inspiration. Thanks!

    I just bought cute bows from the Dollar Store yesterday :) My goal was to pick up hangers, but ended up with a whole bunch of things which isn’t a bad!!

    These are some great ideas. I especially like the gold flower ornament, it’s so unique and interesting. I usually just wrap them in wrapping paper but this seems like something I can do to jazz them up a little bit.

    It never occurred to me to look at Dollar Tree for wrapping items – these are sooo adorable, I love them all. I’m on my way to Dollar Tree now – bye!!

    I like to get my bags and wrapping items from the dollar tree. Plus, it doesn’t make my stomach turn so much when we have to throw the paper and items away after it has been ripped to shreds!
