5. Arts & Crafts

As a kid, I was quite into arts and crafts, and my mother would keep me busy creating unique gift-wrapping paper. One year – I must’ve been 10 or 11 – we laid out a lot of white paper on the sitting room floor, and I’d dip my small hands in paint, only to then make a print of them on the paper. I made a bit of a mess, I’ll admit it, but my wrapping paper caught everyone’s attention. With that in mind, I’m very conscious about the time you have in the salon, so why not simply opt for newspaper wrapping? If it’s in good shape, it stands out. Plus, you recycle instead of buying new, and all you have to do is to use cute little rustic ornaments to top it all off.

What you will need:

  • Newspaper (has to be still in good shape!)
  • Rustic ornaments
  • Markers
  • String
  • Tape
  • Name tags (can be cut-out cardboard)

6. Travel Bucketlist

Remember the days we used physical roadmaps to get around new places? Do you promote eco-friendliness in your salon? If you said yes to those two questions, well this might just be the perfect gift-wrapping idea for your salon or spa. Use those old roadmaps (who needs them anymore when we have Google Maps?!) and breathe a new life into them! Use some thin white ribbon as the finishing touch and don’t forget to add a small tag for your customer to fill out!

What you will need:

  • Roadmaps
  • Ribbons or string
  • Tape

7. The Classic Plaid Patterns

What’s great about this classic gift wrap is its versatility. No matter who the gift is destined for – woman or man – it works. If you’re running low on staff or time in December but still want to offer a gift-wrapping service, this is a good option for your salon. All you need is tartan wrapping paper and some ribbons or strings. Easy as 1,2,3!

What you will need:

  • Tartan wrapping paper
  • Ribbons or string
  • Tape
  • Rustic ornaments (optional)
