Burlap-Pickup some burlap from the craft store to give your presents a warm, southern charm.

Seashells-Live near the coast or maybe have some extra seashells laying around from that last vacation to the beach? Grab them and zest up a boring gift with a touch from the sea.

NewspaperTake that Sunday paper and turn it into something magical! Add a pretty, black bow and you’re all done.

Candy Canes Use some of those leftover candy canes to add some festivity to your special packages! Just tie on with a bow or tape. Simple and tasty!
