It’s nearing the holiday’s and we are feeling oh so festive. At this point, the tree is up, the garland is hung, and the holiday shopping is (almost) done. My favorite part? Gift wrap. I love finding new and unique sources for gift wrapping. To me, the presentation is almost just as good as giving what’s inside. I know that not everyone loves the idea of wrapping gifts as much as I do, so I’ve decided to highlight some of the best resources for wrapping, boxes, and the details to pull it all together.
One of my favorite resources for gift wrap is the Target line Sugar Paper LA. I love that it’s easy to find locally, and they maintain the same aesthetic year after year. This year they added the most beautiful true navy. They have everything from wrapping paper, to bags, to beautiful boxes that take the work out of wrapping. I find myself wishing I had some of the perfect blush ribbon throughout the year, so I make sure to stock up when it’s here for the holidays.
A new addition to Target this year, is the much anticipated Hearth and Hand line from Chip and Joanna Gaines. Their plaid ribbon is my favorite. The black and white plaid pattern was the perfect addition to my white and blush Sugar Paper LA gift boxes. I even used the same ribbon as my tree topper this year. I love to shop local, and it’s super helpful to have those go to resources last minute. If you plan ahead, you can find some really beautiful wrapping. The Emerald Peonies from Rifle Paper Co. is one of my favorites.
Adding simple touches to your gift wrapping can go a long way. I love adding simple greenery, like eucalyptus. It maintains its beauty even after it’s dried out- but another good alternative is simple twigs or branches. Just tuck them into your ribbon and you’re good to go.
There’s also really fun ways to label your gifts, whether you choose to use tie on tags (we love these ones from Rifle Paper Co.), or opt for the stick on labels- there are so many beautiful options. You can also use a monogram ornament as a gift label, which also doubles as a special gift they can keep forever.
Happy gifting! I wish you all a joyous and happy holiday season.
