How to Wrap a Wedding Gift: Make a Tower

I had a mix of items for a friend’s wedding gift and put them together in a tall wedding gift tower. This took me about 90 minutes to create and had a big visual impact! It was not hard to do, so here are my tips:

  • Buy a mix of wrapping papers and variety of ribbons to make it more interesting. You can make it all match or monotone if you want. I enjoyed the look of the mixed papers and ribbons.
  • I put the ribbons around the boxes so it was secured on all four sides and tied them down very tight. This tower was so snug, I was able to tip it sideways to fit it in a car and it stayed together.
  • Put items in sturdy boxes with the larger boxes on the bottom and the smaller boxes on top.
  • Use plenty of tissue paper and bubble wrap for delicate items.
  • Secure the card well so it does not get separated from your gift.
  • Decorate the top of your tower with something lovely. I used artificial flowers and butterflies. Try to do something different than a bow on top at it add a lot of beauty.

  • If something will not fit within the tower structure or is too fragile to add, just wrap it in matching papers and ribbons. Make sure it has its own card to make it easy for the the recipients to know whom sent the gift.

Nothing says “I love you on your special, important day with these awesome gifts and I hope you own a box cutter or at least a sturdy pair of scissors” like a giant wedding tower. Opening the whole thing will keep them busy for a half an hour or possibly more on their honeymoon. I like to think of it as free entertainment for the happy couple, but less cruel than the time I gave my cousin a gold ring inside five individually wrapped boxes of decreasing size one year for Christmas. WP-White-Bar-550x10

    W0w! That came out brilliant and so pretty too. Although, they may have other “free entertain” on their mind:)
