Read on to discover creative Valentine's day gift-wrap ideas and gift-wrapping essentials. Also, how to add a personal touch to your gift and the best ways to present your gifts.
Gift Wrapping Essentials
One of the most important steps in perfecting your Valentine's Day gift wrap is choosing the wrapping paper and ribbon.
Don't use just any old party supplies. Use high-quality wrapping paper, like shiny foil or heavyweight paper.
Next, choose a theme for your Valentine's day gift wrap!
Want to do a Valentine's Day theme? Choose colors and patterns that complement it. Look for different hues of red, pink, and white, and/or patterns with designs like hearts, polka dots, or flowers.
You could also base the theme on your loved one's interests. Do they love dogs? Then use the most adorable puppy wrapping paper you can find! A fan of purple? Try wrapping their presents in various shades of purple topped with ribbons and bows.
Is your loved one eco-conscious? Make sure to use sustainable wrapping materials, like biodegradable and recyclable cardstock. Try not use any plastic. Instead of using gift tags, you can attach a wooden letter or monogram, and decorate the gift with plant and herb clippings from the garden. Write them a card on seed paper, which will sprout flowers, herbs, or veggies when planted!

Creative Valentine's Day Gift Wrap Ideas
Here are some unique and creative ideas to get you inspired:
- Gather a collection of beautiful flowers and press them inside a book. Once properly dried, you can attach the pressed flowers to the outside of your wrapped gift.
- Tie the ribbon of your choice around the gift and use it to adorn the top with another small present! What's better than receiving two gifts in one?
- Order custom wrapping paper! You can do fun designs featuring you, your loved one(s), or their pet on them. Or, create your own pattern!
- Use a silk ribbon that doubles as a romantic and luxurious gift. Wrap your gift with a Blissy Hair Ribbon!

Adding a Special Touch
A personal touch will make your loved one feel extra special.
One way you can do this is by attaching a handwritten, heartfelt note or card. Make sure to write your note on either a fancy card (Etsy has tons of beautiful options) or paper that looks good and will last, like parchment or linen paper.
You can also decorate your Valentine's Day gift with handmade accents. Attach some crocheted or paper-cutout hearts, and a cute photo of you and your partner. Or, of a favorite place you've traveled to together. (The photos can also double as gift tags!)
