Even though I use a mobile wrapping station, I still vacillate between using wrapping paper and gift bags each year. My mom is the Queen of Gift Wrap. Her gifts are so pretty it’s almost hard to unwrap them because you feel like they shouldn’t be “disturbed” ha ha. She’s gonna get me for saying that but it’s true.
As I shared yesterday, we celebrate the holidays in so many different places I try to keep at least one thing on the gift wrap consistent like the year we burned monograms on wooden ornaments…
or the year we added little embellishments on each package.
Last year I had a neutral theme and I wrapped a one set of faux presents in neutral papers and another set in bright red because I kept hearing, “You know Christmas is supposed to be red. I think it’s like a requirement for Santa.” Ok, I get it, you want some red up in here!
This year, I decided to wrap all of the gifts we were going to open at Loblolly in white and place a word search on the front of each present. One of my nephews is learning to read and I found out over Thanksgiving it’s a big deal when you can read cool words like Lego and Santa. They’re seriously so sweet. I put a legend on the back. I can’t wait to see if they find them all.
I also wrapped a few presents in this snowflake paper.
This paper is my favorite this year. I picked it up at the Dollar Tree. I know. $1!
See you guys back here tomorrow. I’m sharing a hot chocolate recipe you can give your friends, neighbors or coworkers.
