5 Christmas Wrapping Paper Sources, Day 1

December 10, 2018

By Tab Byrum

For me, the wrapping of gifts is an art unto itself. Back when I worked in retail I LOVED wrapping gifts and I also loved picking what wrapping papers we were going to use in the store for gift wrap as well as choosing the ones we were going to sell to the public. I’m always amazed every year to see what artists and companies come out with every year that’s new and different. Whether you like traditional, contemporary, dogs, penguins or plain paper with fancy ribbons, there’s something out there for you. Today and tomorrow we are going to take a look at paper selections from 10 different sources, I’m sharing some of the ones that really jumped out at me or made me say, “Ahhhhhh”. I guarantee you can find something that matches your Christmas decor and makes you smile. Today we are looking at papers from some websites that are more “boutique” and tomorrow we are looking at some more well-known sources. Check them all out and Enjoy!!!



Old Red Trucks are all the rage for Christmas decorating, check out Best Friend & Christmas Truck here

Red & Black Plaid is a fun way to wrap presents for the guys, this is an added bonus with the beautiful white deer image. Check out Deer Against Red & Black Plaid here

I’m always a sucker for a good vintage Santa and Hi Red Santa is perfect in so many ways.

Vintage Christmas Traditions is the perfect Christmas paper for girls and some boys of all ages. 

I love all the colors used in Christmas Birds In Snow!! Wouldn’t this be beautiful with Gray Ribbon, White or Red and White Striped?

Not On The High Street



Brown Paper is still one of my favorite wrapping papers and the Recycled Brown Christmas Wrapping Paper is all screen printed with images and messages. 

The nobleness of the Pheasant is caught in this Pheasant Christmas Wrapping Paper. A beautiful paper to use with a wildlife and nature themed Christmas. 

As you know, we love Black and White here at Tabulous and this classicly designed Penguin Christmas Wrapping Paper fills the bill. Doesn’t it look great with Gold or White Ribbon?

I have a soft spot for Dachshunds so I was thrilled to see this Dachshund Wrapping Paper from NOTHS and I love the blue background. 

Another gorgeous Black and White Paper is Watercolour Forest Paper. The Black sheer ribbon is beautiful and I think Red would be stunning. 

Rifle Paper Co.


I have an affinity for the old-fashioned Christmas Light Bulbs so I’m really loving the Holiday Lights Wrapping Paper from Rifle Paper Co. Love all the colors and so many choices of what to use for a ribbon.

I love the mint green background used on Winterberries from RPC. 

There are so many ribbon color choices to use with the Holiday Sun Gift Wrap. Black, Gold, White, and Blue will all look wonderful.

Softer colors are very popular for the holidays now and the Corals, Light Green, soft Red and White used in North Pole are perfect. Don’t you love the elves?

Beautiful Angels and bright colors fill the night sky of the Peace on Earth Gift Wrap from Rifle Paper Co.

Paper Source


I’m all about the vintage and the Noel Flat Wrap has got my attention from Paper Source. 

Who doesn’t love a jolly dancing Snowman? This Snowman Flat Wrap has fun and frolicking snowmen dancing across the Christmas Red background. 

Birch Trees With Cardinals is a beautiful and elegant paper that would be gorgeous with Silver, Red or Green Ribbon. 

If you’re wrapping kid’s gifts and they love dinosaurs then this Tree Rex Wrapping Paper is exactly what you need. Perfect for girls and boys and tons of ribbon and bow possibilities. 

We all love Christmas Cookies and Paper Source has used the holiday edibles as the theme for a paper. I love all the cute cookies and wonderful colors used in Christmas Cookies Flat Wrap

If your family loves animals and the outdoors then check out the Christmas Woods Paper. Fun scenes, colors, and characters. 

If you’re looking for drama in your wrapping paper check out the Decked Out Decor Wrap. Trees made of stars and ornaments in Houndstooth dance across a black background using Red, White, and Gray. 

Blue is VERY popular for holiday decorating and the Snowy Trees Paper combines Blues, Silver, and White into an elegant wrap. 

Snowflakes and Christmas Lights take center stage on the Let It Snow Paper. Lots of great ribbon choices to pair with this paper. 

Christmas Cardinals combines two of my favorite things, Brown Paper, and Cardinals. Pine cones and branches are an added bonus. 

I hope you’ve seen something here that you can use for your gifts this year. Check back tomorrow as we see what some of the more well-known retailers and chains are offering in Holiday gift wrap. Enjoy!!!
