Every year Christmas rolls around and we’re left thinking: how can we endure another year of shiny tinsel, off-tune carols and out-of-touch gifts from our aunts? Unfortunately, when it comes to Christmas, you have to pick your battles. Maybe trying to get your mom to replace her kitschy plastic tree with a handcrafted wooden one isn’t the right way to go, but you can always add your own hipster spin when you’re wrapping your gifts!
Nowadays, Christmas wrapping paper is as glossy and modern as the rest of it. Covering a vintage typewriter in neon green trees printed on a silver background just doesn’t look right.
Luckily for you, we’ve found 10 vintage-style wrapping papers that will make your next Christmas just a little bit more hipster-friendly.
