One of my favorite parts of holiday gift giving is wrapping the presents. I hoard wrapping paper, I collect trinkets to top the gifts with, and the ribbons---you don't even want to know how many rolls I have stashed away for this time of year. Some of my favorite places to shop for gift wrap supplies are Target (obsessed with their Sugar Paper collection) and Paperchase.
Now that I have kids, I go a little crazy with the gift wrapping. Brody and Isla's favorite part of Christmas is tearing the paper off of boxes , so obviously the prettier the better. As you guys know from our Christmas cards, Minted.com is one of my favorite ways to personalize our Holiday. While they are super well known for their card selection, they also offer personalized gift wrap , which i'm pretty obsessed with!
The process is super easy and fun! I just import some of our favorite pictures of Brody and Isla and order a few sheets. Every year when they arrive, I am blown away. The quality, the colors, the cuteness--all even better in person! I love watching the looks on our relatives faces when they see a gift wrapped in Brody and Isla pictures.
I typically order three different sets because I can never pick a favorite (plus, they're a great price). A few of my favorite patterns that we've ordered are the Vintage Post Paper , the Santa's Wrap Wrapping Paper (my favorite!), and the whimsical Kid Magic Paper . Each style is $15 for 5 fairly large sheets--it works out to be about the same price as buying a gift bag at the store! And just a side note, make sure edit all of the placeholder text so you don't end up with "Cooper's First Christmas"--oops!
Do you have any fun traditions you participate in to personalize the Holiday season for your family?
