Hanukkah Gift Wrap ideas

Having a Ball

Start a new tradition with a cute and clever gift ball.

This seemingly never-ending stream of small tokens is fun to put together and even more fun to open. It’s great for kids and adults and could be passed around a family gathering to allow each person to take a treat.

SUPPLIES FOR HANUKKAH GIFT BALL

  • tissue paper
  • scissors
  • tiny gifts—like gelt, folded dollar bills, dreidels, or stickers

Cut your tissue paper into strips that are about two inches thick.

Fold the first small gift into the end of one strip, and begin rolling the tissue around the gift. If you want to make it a game, start with the most fun or valuable gift.

Keep rolling and tuck in more gifts as you go. A couple of inches before you reach the end of each tissue strip, place the end of another strip on top and continue rolling, so your tissue never runs out.

Once you’ve rolled up all your gifts, finish off the bundle with a ribbon and a sticker, or attach a piece of chocolate gelt for a little added flair.

Set the other star on top of the gifts and line it up with the first star, then glue or tape the edges together.

Toys on toys

Layer ribbon, strips of contrasting wrapping paper, and baker’s twine around your wrapped gifts, and finish them off with a little attachment—like this dinosaur toy, a dreidel, or a bag of gelt.
