More ways to use your free H&A wrapping paper

With our big Christmas competition in full swing, here are some of our favourite trimmings to jazz up the wrapping

With our big Christmas competition in full swing, here's another way to make your presents stand out

Rather than use gift tags, try marking out your presents with a Christmas decoration instead. It may require a good memory of which bauble is for whom but we promise your presents will stand out beneath the tree.

As well as a glass bauble, we’ve wrapped this present with two different types of cotton ribbon for a bit of contrast. To get you started, here are some places you can get similar bits for your wrapping.

East of India ‘Merry Christmas’ ribbon from £0.89 per m 

Sewsweet organic cotton ribbon £0.85 per yard; Sophia Victoria Joy ribbon bobbins from £1.95 for 2m

Linea white pinecone decoration £4.20; Cow & Co recycled glass acorn decoration £6.50

And don't forget! Once you've wrapped your present in your H&A paper free with our December issue, tweet a picture of it to @homes_antiques with the hastag #HAwrapup for a chance to win one of our special edition Christmas bookazines.
