As if you needed one more reason to show off your gift wrapping skills.
If you’re planning to post pictures of your gorgeously wrapped gifts on Instagram this year, here’s one more hashtag you should add: #StJudeShareAGift. This holiday season, Garnet Hill launched a fundraising campaign for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and for each photo of a gift wrapped with natural elements tagged with #StJudeShareAGift, the company will donate $10, for a maximum donation of $15,000.
So far, the posts have just started to trickle in, but a couple of our favorite bloggers have already shared their beautiful gift wrapping ideas. Get inspired by the pretty presents below, then wrap your own and snap a pic.
For Jenny from Sugar & Cloth, St. Jude is a charity close to her heart. Her teenage cousin Max passed away from liver cancer, and she says that St. Jude “was a special place for him, and I try to make sure we support them often!” If you’d like to contribute to the cause, take a cue from Jenny’s pretty presents and start with colorful boxes, then wrap with ribbon, and tuck blooms and foliage underneath.
For a mix of glam and natural elements, follow interior stylist Sarah Gunn’s lead and attach big sparkly gem charms onto presents covered in leafy gift wrap.
Getting crafty for a good cause? Add that to our list of favorite holiday activities.
