Recycled Christmas wrapping paper

Have you wrapped your Christmas gifts yet?  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you’ll know that I’m way behind this year due to some home renovation, but I’m looking forward to getting festive this coming week when hopefully all will be finished.  Yey!

My wrapping paper of choice is most often a simple brown paper parcel tied up with raffia, but when I saw these from Alice Palace with their beautiful hand-drawn images I was in love.

Quirky illustrated wrapping paper and tape

Decorated with joyous festive images such as robins, mince pies, geese, holly berries, Christmas puddings and even a lovely snow bunny – they are so fun and I’m sure your family and friends would be delighted to received parcels wrapped up in this paper.  What’s even better is that Alice Palace’s wrapping paper is made from 100% recycled paper and printed using vegetable inks.

Driftwood star garland

Following on from last week’s gorgeous willow Christmas tree skirt I’m back to share another lovely festive find.  This string of driftwood stars is available from online eco-chic shop Miki Organic and would be a pretty addition to your Christmas decorations, especially if you love the natural look.

Each garland is just under a metre long and costs £15.  If you haven’t come across Miki Organic before you must check out their beautiful collection of homewares and gifts all underpinned by their ethos of sustainable, ethical, and beautiful.

Tomorrow I’ve got a fantastic DIY Christmas project so do check back for more festive fun as part of my Natural Wedding Christmas Special.
