It’s A Wrap

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and if you’re looking for ways to create the perfectly wrapped holiday gift, now is the best time to shop for all of your supplies. There are so many choices at The Container Store, Paper Source, Papyrus, Target  and Michael’s. Beautiful wrapping paper, bows, gift tags, ribbons, gift bags and all other sorts of added touches are abundant this time of year. Since stores have such a vast selection of whimsical items, it’s actually kind of difficult deciding what to buy!

When our boys were young, I remember most of the gifts that were toys came in really big boxes. I’d always set one night aside to get all of the gifts wrapped while the kids were sleeping and would call that late night session a “wrap-fest”. Thinking back, it actually would have been nice having a glass of wine by my side with holiday music playing. Before I sat down for my late night wrap session, I always wanted to be certain that I had enough paper and ribbon to wrap all of the gifts in one sitting, and not have to go back out and fight the crowds. (It’s surprising how one large gift can take a whole roll of wrapping paper!)

If you want to learn some new gift wrapping tips in person and need inspiration to kick off the holiday season, The Container Store is offering Gift Wrap and Bow Demonstrations at each of their stores at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM through December 23rd! I totally love that they’re offering these experiences to their customers.

    Love the wine strategy while wrapping! I can vouch for the hanging organizer but fear this year I need to advance to one of the carts for volume.
