Where to buy Christmas wrapping paper

Not On The High Street
If you're after a sustainable, zero-waste gift wrap, reusable fabric wrapping is for you. This is especially handy for gifting within one household or within a family, as you can use it time and time again. Or it can be a nice extra when gifting to a friend or loved one, who can then go on to reuse it themselves.
There are plenty of reusable fabric wraps on the market, but how about this charming handmade wrap from Not On The High Street? When used with the Japanese Furoshiki wrapping method, fabric wrap will make your gifts even more memorable.

A wintry trip to John Lewis is about as festive as a roast turkey, so what better place to shop for Christmas wrapping? They stock a great range of wrapping paper designs, from glitzy glam to more minimalist styles. They also have a great selection of Christmas wrapping paper for children.
