One thing I love about the holidays is the gifts! No, I'm not talking about the actual gift. Although, I'm not gonna sit here and lie to you, I do love receiving presents. But, for all intents and purposes, today I'm talking about the gift wrap.
Don't get me wrong, I haven't always enjoyed this part of gift giving. It's just in the last couple of years that I've acquired a fondness for it. As my family will attest to, I was actually THE worst gift preparer in the bunch. I always considered it a chore and would keep putting it off as long as possible. I finally hit rock bottom when, a few years ago, (less than I'd like to admit) my little brother asked my mom one christmas "Do you think Caroline could wrap her presents before Christmas morning, so we don't have to wait to open presents?"
I know, sad right? Well, things have changed now and dressing up gifts has become part of the whole experience for me. There are so many creative and beautiful gift wrap ideas out there on the www. I like the non-traditional ones best.
Here are a few of my favorite gussied up gifts.
Here's some festive wrapping paper for you to consider when thinking about glamming up your gifts.
