wrap it like a polaroid picture

This Christmas I found myself with a growing bookmarked collection of Polaroid inspired decorating ideas. Now before I send you running for the hills, not yet recovered from the hangover of the previous Christmas, I plan on saving all my little bookmarkies for later in the year - and I mean much later, with an Autumn baby birthday party to plan for, I am most definitely not one of those people who annoyingly calls mid-August to enquire about your plans for Boxing Day Lunch (hello nan!). But since gifting and the lesser appreciated but still as lovely gift-wrapping are year-round pursuits and since we make a regular feature of lovely packages I thought I should share this one right now.

As I might have mentioned before I am a big fan of dressing up a brown paper package so, inspired by this post here are my Polarised gift tags:

A Christmassey one - sorry to all you Grinches but I am lamenting the huge hole in my heart and living room where my twinkly tree stood!

A sneak peak at the contents:


Anf my favourite, not least because oh my- how cute is my kid? Perfect for toddlers who can't read their name yet (true story: a couple of years ago my mom came downstairs on Xmas morning to find my younger brother had opened all the presents looking for his new toys!)

Happy wrapping folks!

Blue Skies,

p.s. for those of you too painstakingly self-aware but not quite hip and edgy enough to own a polaroid (like me, for instance) check out Poladroid, where you can upload your digipics and polarise them!



  1. I love polaroids. I got a new fuji instax which is pretty similar and I love it.

  2. that is such a cute idea! Wrapping gifts with polariods :) so neat! Thanks for sharing this!

  3. these photos are amazing!
    I wish I had a polaroid :(
    but I'll follow your advice and I'll go to the Poladroid website and have a look!
    A real polaroid costs a lot :S
    I'm now following your blog :D it's really cute!

  4. This is a great idea - i love the pic of that nesting doll. So cute.
