Green and Red
Gotta have those traditional colors, now...!

What would Christmas be without kelly green and candy-apple red (and of course white) —green for evergreens, red for holly berries (and cardinals!) and of course white for snow. I find strong, graphic patterns and matte surfaces to be the most complementary to this color scheme, though of course a little of that trademark lime green never hurt anything. A more popular way to liven things up is with a bit of plaid.

Here are some gifts wrapped in the traditional Christmas colors.
