I love receiving a gift-wrapped present.
But I think I love gift wrapping even more!
There's just something so hospitable about taking that extra time to pick out wrapping paper, ribbon, and bow to make a gift extra-special. And whenever I wrap a gift I always do so with the recipient and occasion in mind.
That's why the Christmas season is one of my most-favorite times of the year. Not only do I get to gift wrap lots of presents...but I get to do so with a "theme" in mind. I love challenging myself to gift wrap each recipient's present in a slightly different way from anyone else's gift...using the exact same materials and/or color scheme.
This year, I am loving the kraft paper and baker's twine look, but there are lots of beautiful gift wrap ideas out on the web.
Here are just a few of my favorites...
Kraft and Twine
I hope this gives you some great ideas to start your holiday gift wrapping extravaganza!
And when your ready to do your wrapping, light a candle, cue the Christmas music, and allow yourself time to really appreciate the recipient and what he or she means to you in your life!
