Kraft paper: This cost-effective wrap has become popular for gifts in recent years and can easily be personalized or dressed up.
Uline (A good choice if you're looking for a large roll.)
Small boxes: The gift box is classic for a reason! And finding a box that's just the right size can keep your gift from breaking in transit.
The Container Store (Great for patterned and specialty boxes.)
Paper treat bags: Available in varying sizes, colors, and patterns, these bags are the perfect place to put candy, cookies, or small gifts.
Small linen drawstring bags: These simple bags have become the most popular way to gift loose items like coffee beans; their blank surface is perfect for personalizing with a thank you message or your wedding details.
Twine: Use colorful twine to tie tags to packages or in lieu of a bow.
Whisker Graphics (Divine Twine is our favorite!)
Etsy (A great option for smaller quantities.)
Rubber stamps: You can have a custom stamp made to use as a label, or use a simple shape (like a heart or an arrow) to add a pattern paper and labels.
Washi tape: Use this colorful printed tape it to seal paper bags and envelopes, or to attach labels.
Tissue and crepe paper: Add a little fringed flair to your packaging by wrapping handmade tissue paper fringe around your package in lieu of a bow, or top it with a crepe paper flower.
Nashville Wraps (For every color of tissue paper.)
Castle In The Air (Great for making paper flowers.)
Paper Mart (Another great choice for paper flowers.)
Jars and bottles: We love mini jars and bottles for common wedding favors like honey, jam, and specialty salt; Mason jars are great for homemade gifts (think: hot chocolate mix for a winter wedding favor)
The Jar Store (They have a huge Mason jar selection!)
Labels and tags: Print, write, or stamp labels with a punny message or the date of your celebration.
Zazzle (Our go-to for custom stickers.)
Crinkle paper: Crinkle paper is an easy alternative to tissue when it comes to filling gift baskets or boxes.
Postage: If you're putting a gift in the mail, make it pop with customized or pretty postage.
Confetti: Toss confetti in with your gift or card to add a fun and celebratory vibe.
Artistry in Motion (Martha Stewart's favorite!)
Berry baskets: This creative packaging is perfect for holding seasonal jams and biscuits; you can also turn them into vessels for centerpieces that double as party favors.
Michael's (We love their extra-small wooden berry baskets!)
Cake slice boxes: Cake-shaped boxes are surging in popularity; personalize them with a custom sticker and set them on your dessert bar so guests can take home extra cake.
Canvas tote bags: These simple tote bags are our go-to for wedding welcome bags and bridesmaids gifts; have them printed with a clever slogan or a simple design and add your wedding date.
