10 Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

Hello there! We've come to Christmas so closely now, but have you gotten your gift wrapped? If your answer is no, we have 10 ideas for you to experiment.

For a classy look, go for the in-trend marble wrapping paper with black ribbon. It creates a luxury feel even if it's just a box of cookie inside. To add on the glam, switch the black ribbon to rose gold.

Galaxy pattern is also another trendy design these days. You can't go wrong with a galaxy print. It's suitable for gift of all ages.

Use two wrapping papers with different designs to overlay on each other. The result creates a texture. Add some embellishments to get the festival feel to it.

Got too broke buying the presents? Just grab a brown paper and draw a bow on the top with a marker pen. Unintentionally, you will be creating one of the greatest masterpiece that no other gifts can look like it.

If you're a nature lover and have a lot of greens around, pluck some of it and place it as an embellishment. 

If you find that brown paper is too boring, create a pattern by painting strokes or splashes of paint on top of it. 

Make your gift more personalized by adding polaroid photo on the top. If you just came back from a trip recently, this would be a great conversation starter for your family and friends.

Creativity doesn't end with painting strokes on the brown paper. Use your imagination to mix and match your drawings with the embellishments you have in hand. 

For the kids, try this magical unicorn gift box. All the DIY instruction is available <<here>>. 

If you have washi tapes lying around and not sure how to use it, just create patterns out of it.

Tarte Blush Bazaar Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

I am one of those who doesn't really care about blush. Once I find a universal shade that suit my skin tone, I will stick to it for a long time. In my case, the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Risque has been my favourite for awhile. I even recommended three friends to get it and they have been loving it.

When I came to the chance to snatch the Tarte Blush Bazaar Amazonian Clay Blush Palette, I didn't stop for a second thought. This would be the best holiday treat for myself because I don't own a lot of blushes, so that's the excuse I gave to myself.

Price: RM195
Purchase from: Sephora <<here>>
Availability: Limited edition
Packaging: Plastic

What it is?

A double-sided palette with 10 blush and highlight shades to make every single skin tone glow.

Product feature:

Blush unveils a gorgeous mix of warm and cool-toned blush and bronzers. Ranging from subtle to bold with matte and micro-shimmer finishes, all eight blush hues and two highlighters shades are powdered by tarte's iconic Amazonian clay for amazing colour payoff and long-lasting wear. The bright, intricate packaging is inspired by Moroccan design, blending the best of colour and texture in one space-saving palette.

Why you will love it?

  • The quality of the blush is extremely good. The Amazonian Clay blush is packed with compact blush in a pan. The packaging is also well-designed with the Moroccan inspired motifs that is so stunning.
  • On application, the blush stays for a long hour (approximately 12 hours or more) for normal skin type. For oily skin, it lasts for about 8 hours. Even with the oiliest skin, the blush does not appear clumpy. 
  • It works well on top of liquid foundation as well as on powder foundation. 
  • The combination of shades of cool tone and warm tone are carefully picked to suit all skin tone. Almost any skin tone can use the shades of this palette.

You wouldn't want to get it if...

  • You are expecting to travel with it. The size is pretty huge - way bigger than the size of a palm.
  • You have a lot of blushes. The shades are very universal which may be too generic for those who have a huge collection of blush.
