Forget the Presents, Luxury Christmas Wrapping Paper Is Our #1 Obsession

What is it about being able to create beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts that screams "I'm super organised"? I've had this theory for a while now that not only does it mean you give an even more incredible present (hey, we all know first impressions count), but that it also makes everyone think you're incredibly chic and put together… right? Right. The thing is that gift wrapping has come a long way from the gossamer-thin, poorly executed reindeer prints of the past, and a new souped-up wave ranges from the minimal to more alternative finishes (first dibs on the angel cats). We've rounded up the best so that you'll be the chicest member of your family during this festive period.

Covent Garden's pop-up Noel shop is selling luxury wrapping paper by some of your favourite designers. 

Trust Liberty to make the most beautiful prints. 

Not into patterns? Turn to The White Company. 

Okay, so this isn't totally festive, but it is pretty damn chic.

Once again, Etsy delivers with this pretty wrapping paper. 

Another more minimal take on gift wrapping. 

If you can't have a white Christmas, at least there's this paper. 

We just had to include this.
