There is nothing prettier than a gorgeously wrapped gift. I prefer the shabby chic look myself, but really, when those packages all wrapped up with ribbons and string are standing under the Christmas tree, I can't help but get excited. Wrapping paper and accessories are expensive though, and the nicer you want your gifts to look, the more expensive it gets. That's why these 13 frugal DIY gift wrapping ideas are so great!
