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.
