GIFT WRAPPING 101

Happy Thursday!!! There is something about handwritten notes and gift wrapped presents that bring me back to my childhood years. It allows us to add a little bit of thought to the the details which I love. So, as you may know by now, gift wrapping is a big deal in our house.

You may ask how one goes about picking out the right patterns and papers. I normally start with a two-three color combo. This year, I went with neutrals with a pop of color: black, white and gold with a touch of red, coral, and pink. All five of my wrapping papers were purchased at Target, and my ribbon was purchased at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s.

Step 1:

GO TO TARGET. BUY 3-5 ROLLS OF WRAPPING PAPER WITHIN YOUR THEME AND SIMPLE NAME TAGS TOO. I LOVE THE KRAFT PAPER TAGS IF I CAN’T FIND BASIC ONES. AND, GET SOME RIBBON TOO. IT IS CHEAPER AT HOBBY LOBBY.

Step 2: 

 PURCHASE SOME BOXES FOR ALL OF THE GIFTS THAT ARE NOT ALREADY BOXED.

STEP 3:

LET THE WRAPPING BEGIN. I LOVE TO ADD 2-3 DIFFERENT RIBBON OPTIONS TO EACH GIFT. THEN, I CLIP SOME GREENERY FROM MY GARDEN OR THE TREE. THE FUNKIER THE BETTER IS USUALLY MY MOTTO.  I HAD SOME DRIED EUCALYPTUS FROM TRADER JOE’S SO I ADDED THAT TO A FEW GIFTS TOO.

That’s a wrap. It is seriously so easy and beats any gift bag in a “who’s prettier” contest!! What do you prefer doing?? Wrapping paper or gift bags? Let me know in the comments below.

    I love the colors of the wrapping paper! We bought a bunch years ago on clearance and are just now running out, so this is the perfect time to buy the fancier kind. I saw some beautiful paper at IKEA; black and white designs, very spiffy-looking!

    I loved wrapping presents before I had small children. Now it’s all about just getting it done quickly! This is gorgeous paper though!

    Wrapping presents is one of my favorite things to do during the holidays. I love the eucalyptus idea, I am using that one next year!
