Glam gift wrapping idea by stylist Sabrina Linn

Doll up your prezzies with satin ribbon, pretty winter adornments and colourful paper.


Designer and stylist Sabrina Linn gives tips on how to make your Christmas presents really stand out this year.

“Dress up your gifts as you would a holiday outfit, with glamorous accessories. Choose one type of paper, even a basic one (the less traditional the better!), and then doll it up with luxurious satin-ribbon bows, bells and special gift tags like these white snowflakes from an art-supply store.”

Tip! Look for environmentally friendly options like recycled newspapers, magazines or even tea towels. This marbleized paper is made from stone and is recyclable.

Favourite holiday tradition:

“Spending Christmas Eve with my family, and then watching Little Women for the millionth time cozied up together on the couch by the tree.”

Under the tree I hope to find . . .

“Tickets to a sunny winter holiday!”
