Where to Buy Christian Christmas Gift Wrap?

Posted on 12/11/2005 3:45:50 PM PST by Tangerine Time Machine

Each year it gets harder and harder to locate Christmas wrapping paper with a Christian theme. You know, the designs we used to take for granted: Babe in a Manger, the Three Wise Men, Peace on Earth, etc.

I thought it would be useful to pool our resources as to what is available out there in stores and on the Web.

After a few hours on Google, I've found two designs that fit the bill:

Jeweled Peace

We Three Kings

Clearly my Google-foo skills are deficient. Anyone else have some good sources?

Yep. Not much there there:
http://search.ebay.com//search/search.dll?from=R40&satitle=vintage+christmas+gift+wrap

Searching with "christian christmas gift wrap" yields no hits.

You might want to take a peek at your local Wal-Mart. Ours has a decent selection of Christ-themed wrapping paper and some pretty explicitly pro-Jesus Christmas cards, too. It might vary by state, purchasing team, or general manager preferences, however.

"Babe in a Manger, the Three Wise Men, Peace on Earth, etc."

You're so intolerant, politically speaking.

This is a good post. I TOO wanted to get something CHRIST mas and not just seasonal, and I looked at WalMart. They aren't friendly to the Christmas crowd. If anyone knows where we can get some Christmas Wrapping paper please respond. I'm willing to print my own up on this Ink Jet....

We were just talking about that. Of all the places we've looked for wrapping paper, we've only seen maybe two or three rolls that had a Christian theme. All the others were Santa, "holiday" trees, or commercial character based. When I say two or three rolls, I mean it too. There weren't even multiple rolls of those particular designs.

Since the best Christmas gift of all came wrapped in swaddling clothes maybe copies of the New York Times, or some other inglorious rag, would be best for wrapping paper. IOW, use something lowly and despicable.

It appears you have to buy at least 417 feet of the wrapping paper. You must have a BUNCH of Christmas gifts :)

A couple of years ago I gave up on finding anything but secular paper and started buying fabric instead. I have been able to find Christian Christmas themed fabric at Hobby Lobby and other fabric stores. I sew bags and tie the tops with decorative ribbon or cord. The best thing is that they are resuable.

There are few found with Bible versus when you search "bible wrap."

I looked Friday for some at Walmart, but I didn't dig thru them all. I did notice today that they have a big "fresh cut Christmas trees" sign and were playing carols.

This whole thing is redundant.
Has anyone noted that December 25th is the first night of Hanukkah also?
If I chose to raise my child as half Jewish, Which she IS...Do we no longer fit in here?
I do not get this whole " war on christmas" thing....

Just remember that we are supposed to say Z-mas now instead of Xmas, as the atheists have figured out that 'X' is secret code for Christ.

So, is it okay to tear open baby Jesus wrapping paper? How do you dispose of it? Is it okay to buy it at Wal-Mart if you're boycotting it for not acknowledging Christmas but it's the only place that carries it? Decisions, decisions.

I've noticed more Christian bookstores and gift shops, mainly in southern states. I take my mother to one up in GA sometimes, Christian Dove or something like that. They sell everything Christian.

Nope. I ain't looking, and I ain't wrapping nothing up this year. If it doesn't fit in an envelope, I'm not giving it away. Gift certificates all around!

I think brown-paper wrap, tied with yarn or a thick quality string is both tasteful and timeless. (Maybe not for kids' presents however.)

Just make sure there is no grocery store printing on it... that would look tacky.

Me too. Kind of. The grand babies are getting a toy. Everyone else are getting necessity gift certificates. I had to go to a Christmas party Friday though. The higher ups kind of frown when you bring things in bags so I was looking for wrap which I usually buy after Christmas.. I have a bunch in storage but haven't made it over there yet.

It's at the grocery store, right next to the milk from the Christian cows.

Sometimes I will wrap one or two presents in the Sunday funny papers, attatch a bow, and it looks great...

Another way I sometimes like to wrap a few presents, is with brown bags, cut up in sheets, from the grocery store...then I might tie a cord of fuzzy twine around it...and add a few pinecones or nuts or leaves that I find outdoors...

My aunt likes to use the brown paper bag method, but instead of using pinecones or nuts as decorations, she likes to use a variety of pics stamped on from the many rubber stamps from her collection...considering the 1000s of various stamps available in the marketplace, and the wide variety of colored inks used in the stamp pads, she usually comes up with very beautiful packages, which convey exactly the message she wishes to send...

Often, if one cannot find the wrapping paper they wish, sometimes creativity can take over, and you can wind up making your own unique wrapping paper...

How can someone be "half Jewish"? Either they believe Jesus was the Savior and was resurrected or not. And where is "here"? Do you mean FreeRepublic or do you mean America?

I've wrapped 'em in brown paper before. Also funny papers. But sometimes, it's nice to have real, pretty, Christmas gift wrap on 'em.

I'm a Christian and also of Jewish descent. This means that I am Christian but refuse to ignore my heritage. When I was a kid me grandfather gave me a dreidle and we had a menorah every year. To each their own. Judaeism is a religion, Hebrew is accurate for the race, but "Jewish" is also used to indicate it.

I'm puzzled at some of the comments on this thread. If you don't have any helpful suggestions for the poster, why not SOB instead of making seemingly rude wisecracks?

papermart has some star patterns and 2 angel patterns in 100' rolls and orientaltrading.com has some Christian-themed gift bags. Your local Christian bookstore should have a nice selection.

"I've been reading these creative alternatives. I'm going to try some of them."

The creative alternatives are fun and satisfying. I don't make my own Christmas gift wrap....but make all my Christmas decorations. This year I gave some Victorian ornaments I made back in the '70's to my two adult daughters, who've been bugging me for them for years. I'll make more. It's kinda neat, knowing that when your kids are hanging decorations you made, they're thinking of you and their kids do...it adds the much needed weight of family continuity to a Holiday that's been stripped of meaning.
