Gift (Wrap) Guide

I love wrapping gifts. Along with seeing the recipients open them, it’s probably my favorite part of the entire thing. What’s not to love? You can get creative and pass yourself off as this amazing DIY craft goddess (even when you’re not — and I’m definitely not). These days, there are so many companies that make unique, fun wrapping paper and accompanying accessories that it’s kind of difficult to not make your gifts look like Martha Stewart wrapped them. I rounded up some of my faves above. What’s your must have gift wrap accessory? For me, it’s definitely pretty ribbon and a cute gift tag. With just these two things and some white or brown craft paper, your gifts can look great. But I’ve also loved seeing people use foliage like pinecones or holly boughs too!

    I love all of the Rifle Paper Co. gift tags. It does make such a difference, and if you pile them up under your tree early in the Christmas season, they are a big part of the decor! Just puppy proof this year, V! xo

  7. I actually wrote about gift wrapping today too! I keep a giant roll of brown kraft paper and use it all year long. I just add bright/fun ribbons for birthdays, white/gold/sparkles for weddings, and festive for the holidays.

    I made some gift tags (for free download) because I couldn’t find any I liked, but I love the Rifle Paper Co. ones you found. They always have great stuff at the holidays.

    Hehe, my secret to a greatly wrapped gift is a tiny local shop in my hometown. They charge just a small price for gorgeous paper and a huge fluffy bow. I only get the most special of gifts wrapped there, and then tackle the rest with the collection of wrapping paper my mom stores in the rafters.
