Wrap It Up: Holiday Wrapping for Every Taste

Wrapping presents is one of my favourite holiday to-dos. When the boys were younger, I liked to choose one paper for each boy. This helped to keep things organized come Christmas morning when excitement is at a fever pitch. Now it’s about me. When the kids are in bed, I spread out the wrapping and all the accoutrements pour myself a glass of wine and get started. Wrapping is my thing – do not ask me to cook the turkey dinner.

Wrap It Up! 

I remember as a teenager reading in YM Magazine that Tori Spelling’s mom had a room devoted to gift wrapping!  My giddy reaction was a sign for me to stop reading teen-y bopper mags and make the move to Living and drool over Martha Stewart’s organized gift wrapping station at her Connecticut home.  I don’t have the room nor the inclination to give up precious real estate to a gift wrapping station, but I do make sure that I have a fully stocked box of supplies before I start.  I discovered the store Creative Bag, and they have everything you need for the holidays from party supplies to ribbons, bows, and a swoon-worthy collection of papers.

  1. Creative Bag is the best! Dollarama also has really cute wine gift bags, I like to keep a bunch on hand for holiday parties / dinners!

  2. I share your love of wrapping! Depending on the Christmas movie I choose to watch, I pour either a hot chocolate and Bailey’s, or a glass of my favourite wine (in other words, I like to pair a silly movie with the hot chocolate, and a holiday romance with wine!). I love this tradition.

    1. It’s super easy! If I can do it, anyone can. I will include a tutorial in our newsletter – coming out in a few days. If you haven’t yet signed up, you can do it from the main page (right hand side).
