Well, it's getting closer and closer to Christmas day so I've started my gift wrapping. We did most of our shopping online so that really freed up our time! As things come in, I wrap them in the dining room. Then set them around the tree. Since we have a table top tree, I had to place the gifts near it, not necessary underneath the tree. We're still waiting on just a couple of more items, but so far, I'm caught up.
I try to wrap most of my items and avoid gift bags. Gift bags take up more space and cost more. I enjoy the creative process of adorning a package. So, the odd shaped items went in gift bags and the rest got wrapped.
I stayed within my color scheme of white, gold and silver to match my Christmas decor. I bought my wrapping paper, gift bags and tags at Target and my ribbon from Joann's.
I loved being able to mix and match since it all worked together. I made sure that my ribbon wasn't full of glitter too. Last year, I made the mistake of buying ribbon that released glitter everywhere once you touched it. So, Christmas morning was a big mess! Ha!
I like that this wrapping paper is almost an "all occasion" style. It would work fine for any time of year really!
Have you started Christmas wrapping yet?
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend.
