I began wrapping our Christmas gifts over the weekend and I have to say, I kind of enjoyed it. I used to really hate wrapping gifts, but once I started making a "theme" for each year (I know, crazy), it brought a little enjoyment to the process.
This year, I went with a red, silver and white theme. Silver paper with red snowflakes, red paper with silver trees and Santa paper (for The Bug) with red and white accents.
I've also developed a love for accessories on a package. I used to be a gal that just slapped a pre-made bow on. But now, I love pouring over the ribbon, finding a cute little something to tie on the package and sourcing unique pre-made bows.
This year, I found tiny snowflakes and ornaments at Target. Most everything was priced around 50¢ - a super cheap way to make your packages special. The candy cane idea is very cute - thinking between my dog and my child, my packages would be licked to death before Christmas Day.
Do you get excited about wrapping?
