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.
With this being Brody's first Christmas, I am more excited than usual for the gift wrapping. I have a feeling that tearing the paper off of boxes will be his favorite part of Christmas, so the prettier the better. After putting together our Christmas cards with Minted.com , I came across their personalized gift wrapping section and knew we needed to order some for this year.
I imported some of our favorite pictures of Brody and ordered a few sheets, keeping my fingers crossed they would be as cute as the images online. When they arrived, I was blown away. The quality, the colors, the cuteness--all even better in person! I can't wait to watch the grandparent's faces when they see a gift wrapped in Brody pictures.
I ended up ordering three different sets because I couldn't pick a favorite (plus, they're a great price). We ordered 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! If you order by Black Friday you can take an extra 15% off with code BF2015!
