We have selected some of the most original and creative DIY Valentines Day gift wrapping ideas which can be your inspiration for the coming holiday! Decorating Valentine’s Day gifts is no less important than the gift itself and on such a gentle and romantic holiday as February 14th, it is better to pack a gift for your beloved with your own hands. Time spent on beautiful packaging is almost as important as the gift itself. So why not get creative and give it a new meaning?
The traditional colors of the Valentine’s Day are pink and red. But it is not necessary to follow the classic color scheme, right? Natural packaging materials, neutral colors and cute accessories like buttons and ribbons can express your love feelings as well.
Small toppers and tags complement the gift wrapping perfectly and you can write a loving note to the person who will receive your gift. Tags can be cut out of cardboard and painted with watercolors, or you can make small collages using colored paper, lace, ribbons and photographs. Of course, for men, pink-sugary lace packaging may not be the best idea. Plain wrapping paper with men’s accessories like ties or suspenders will be more appropriate.

Photographs or paper silhouettes as gift tags are another easy way to personalize what you are about to give. Do not forget about the hobbies and interests of your loved ones.
