be a wrapping paper boss this season

It’s beginning to look a lot like WRAPPING PAPER SEASON! You know what I’m taking about: the cute reindeer prints, the embellished snowflakes, and golden swirls that have already started popping up in every store. No gift is complete without beautiful wrapping. It is my experience that giving gifts is a lot less stressful when your life and home feel organized and put together. The stress of having to find the right box, wrapping paper, ribbon, and gift tags can be overwhelming, especially when trying to juggle the extra responsibilities the season brings.  

Keep your wrapping station tidy with this guide on wrapping paper storage (apply year-round):

·      Store gift bags within gift bags. Think Russian nesting dolls! It’s an easy storage concept that allows you to easily coordinate the right gifts for the right size. If you have the space available, I also like to store gift bags flat in a drawer or a flat bin if this is more functional for your space.

·      If you don’t already have one, pick up a tall bin to store those beautiful rolls. Nothing’s worse than pulling out a torn or wrinkled roll due to improper storage.

·      Store ribbon in an easily-accessible bin—a shallow one may be best. Spools of ribbon stack easily side by side for maximum visibility. Use pins to tack down the ends of your ribbon so that no unraveling occurs while in storage.

·      Store tissue in a flat bin that tucks and stacks nicely in a holiday storage closet.

 The holidays may become overwhelming if you don’t start planning in advance, so set up your wrapping paper station in advance so you can enjoy the process of wrapping and decorating your gifts this season.
