Seeking refined gift-wrapping ideas? Try these three sophisticated menswear-inspired styles on for size.
A soft take on traditional red and green, this cranberry- and eucalyptus-coloured scheme is über-chic. Highlighted by a graphic plaid wrapping paper, the look gets modern appeal thanks to artfully layered linear elements, from wide grosgrain ribbon to slim leather tape.
Stripe a pose
Realized in subtle striped paper and ribbon, this black and white palette is as timeless as a tuxedo. Snips of pine and tan-toned details – such as leather rope, kraft paper tags and windowpane check gift wrap – introduce a laid-back element.
Navy and chocolate make for a rich combination that feels homey with the addition of gingham touches. Braided suede and frayed twine are relaxed and rustic, as are pinecone and boxwood toppers.
