The holiday season is fast upon us, so when it comes to collecting tips for personalizing holiday gift wrap in 2016, there's no time like the ~present~. (Sorry, had to.) Bustle met up with DIY experts Erin and Ben Napier and Bank of America to discuss fun, unique ways to make all your wrapped goodies look especially memorable this year, no matter how handy you are with crafting. When it comes to tips like these, you want to make sure you're getting them from the best of the best — and with the Napiers, who head not only up Laurel Mercantile Co. and and Scotsman Co., but are about to star in HGTV's Home Town based in Laurel, Mississippi in 2017, you're in great hands.
There's no need to get too fancy or frivolous with any of these tips, which are every bit as affordable as they are adorable. You can start with basic craft paper, then use markers, paint, and twine to really jazz it up. It may seem like a lot of effort, but remember — those gifts are going to be out in the open waiting for the big day for a lot longer than they will be when they're unwrapped, and nothing builds the anticipation for a gift quite like beautiful wrapping paper. Tune in for Erin and Ben's tips below!
