Holiday Gift Wrapping

How many of you out there will be furiously wrapping gifts at midnight on Christmas Eve? The time it takes to wrap holidays gifts is often under estimated and can cause a great deal of stress. Especially if your supplies are scattered throughout your home and you already feel frazzled. frazzled Now’s the time to set up a gift wrapping station. A space you dedicate for preparing packages and wrapping gifts in ease and in privacy. Perhaps it will be on the workbench in your basement or utility room, or the desk in your home office? Or maybe on the floor in your bedroom or at your kitchen table? But before you can start you need all supplies at hand. Then it’s super easy to wrap and enjoy this task. One way to keep all supplies at hand is to have a clear plastic/resin, four or five drawer rolling cart with deep drawers. Canadian Tire is one place to find these fairly inexpensively. Keep tape, scissors, stamps, and other wrapping tools in the top drawer, ribbons and bows in the next, flat pieces of wrapping paper & remnant paper in third drawer, gifts boxes and gift bags in the fourth and fifth drawers. Wrapping paper can be corralled in an old crock pot or an umbrella stand.
Also, before you go out and purchase gift wrapping supplies, check out your own home first. Often times we forget that we bought supplies at last years’ post holiday sales. So enjoy wrapping your gifts this year and take some of the stress out of this holiday season.
