Lovely wrapping, Benita xo

Leena

All the presents are for Wille!
Very pretty, fun tags.

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

These are, I'll show you the ones for my mom tomorrow :). There are also some gifts for friends and family but I hadn't wrapped them yet.

benita, they're just lovely. i'd like our gifts to follow a colour palette someday, but for now it is recycled from last year, hodge podge, which has its own beauty. your lucky boy! x

Zosia

I like the rain dear. It looks a bit like the Australian aboriginal paintings :-). Very nice grey colour palette, too.
If you still have some presents to wrap, you might like the Christmas Wrap (Rap), I posted on Monday ;-) http://polonicahomeagain.blogspot.com/2012/12/christmas-wrap-swiateczny-rap.html .

love the grey stripe. so pretty! i'm going grey and cream this year (wall lining paper and grey/cream butchers twine) with handstitched tags. i love gift wrapping and usually go way over the top :)

p.s. your new camera is amazing - i love how your photography is looking these days!!

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

Thank you! People keep saying the camera has nothing to do with taking better picture's it's all about the photographer. Not true.

Shelly

So cute Benita! I am curious what the pig is about? We have a glass pickle in the tree. My mothers side of the family all have them and I've heard it's a German thing.

Maureen

I'd be happy with a pig or mushroom. btw, one Christmas decoration I bought while living in Thailand was a rat. Only prosperous homes have rats, I was told...

Marlena

Beautiful! I love how simple they are. If I don't use gift bags, I always use plain kraft paper or old maps and nice ribbon.

Lisa Flaherty

Lovely--those ornament tags are the icing on the cake!!

Brita

Pigs are my favorite animals! I adore their little clippy cloppy hooves. What's the tradition over there? Any excuse I can get to add pigs to the tree would be much appreciated :)

Vanessa (The VMCA)

I'm going to start wrapping tonight. I'm going with plain paper (the role of paper that you get at IKEA) and red/white striped string. I hope it looks good under the tree. I'll spice up the kids presents with some stickers and everyone else will have silver gift tags. I love simplicity like this, so much nicer to look at than garish multicolours.

kathryn H

Just beautiful! I love it.

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

I'm afraid they appear on the table as our traditional Christmas food... Sorry...

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

Our traditional Christmas food is ham and pigs were slaughtered before Christmas after people had basically survived on much simpler foods the rest of the year. Back then they ate just about every part of the pig at Christmas. Some of those dishes are so not appetizing if you ask me... Actually I've never even been a fan of the ham.

Helen

They are beautifully wrapped gifts - but why put them out now? Aren't you worried Wille won't believe in Father Christmas any more?!

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

Haha, and they are not actually out yet. I put them under the tree for the photo after I wrapped them. They're "hidden" away until Christmas Eve. Not worried about Wille takinga ppek, he's not into that, but Mini and Bonus might!

Same here in Germany. Also a pig is a symbol for luck. Schwein gehabt means - you were very lucky! I needed some time to get used to expresions like this.

do you have a tradition of the Christmas stocking? we would put little gifts in their handknit stocking (made by their nana for their first Christmas). I would wrap their little gifts in colored tissue (green or red). One daughter would get all the green tissue wrapped gifts & the other daughter the red ones. Little items: toothbrush, hand lotion, razor blades, felt-tip pens, hair scrunchies etc... On Christmas Eve, after they went to bed, I'd be able to grab that bag & stuff their stocking with their tissue wrapped gifts. We always traveled to my parents for Christmas, so I wrapped everything so gifts would remain a surprise.

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

We do stockings too but only for Wille, us adults don't tend to have them over here. I like to fill it with a magazine, a chocolate santa, a gift card or something else small or slim :).
