The gifts have been purchased and are all sitting pretty in their boring store bags. Well it is time to get inspired, motivated, and wrap those presents!
Besides your basic Christmas wrapping paper, there are some fabulous finds out there to make your gift almost to beautiful to open. Even the most amazing and thoughtful gifts are even more special when beautifully wrapped. The Container Store, Paper Source, and Michaels are stocked with all the necessary supplies to wrap your gifts.
Container Store carries decorative tins and boxes for your presents, tons of tissue paper and wrapping paper options, and colorful bows. Paper Source has a great selection of decorative tags, metallic and glitter pens, and tissue paper to add that special touch! Michaels can be overwhelming this time of year, it is like an explosion of red glitter and poinsettias everywhere, but they have the best selection of ribbons, stamps, and festive stickers in my opinion. The stamps and stickers can be cute for kid’s gifts and can make any wrapping more personal. Don’t forget to pick up brown kraft paper, which is so versatile for gifts of all ages. Also, check out your local fabric store for gold- and red-hued tulle which you can use instead of wrapping paper for a more organic look.
