Where To Buy Nostalgic Vintage Christmas Wrapping Paper

Holiday Kitsch Klatch on Etsy Is Your Source For Vintage Christmas Wrapping Paper

For a real nostalgic Christmas, how about wrapping your gifts in vintage wrapping paper from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Or you can up-cycle your favorite vintage papers making them into lovely holiday decorations and table accessories.

While there are many shops online that carry Retro wrapping paper from time to time, I fell in love with an Etsy shop called Holiday Kitsch Klatsch, a shop with a very large inventory of Christmas themed wrapping papers and a great source for vintage paper goods throughout the year.

This shop specializes in all the holidays (Halloween, Easter, Valentines Day, etc.) as well as special occasions (Bridal, Shower, Birthday etc.). At this time you will find a wonderful selection of vintage Christmas gift wrapping paper in very good condition as well as other holiday decor. The colors are vibrant and the papers appear to be unused.

Christmas Themes

While their inventory is always changing, common Christmas themes include Christmas bells, snow scenes, Pointsettas, candles, Santas, Candy Canes, Ornaments, Reindeer, holiday scenes and more.
