Gift wrapping tools - no, this post isn't sponsored by Scotch or Fiskars but it should be ;) I'm pretty sure these nifty things found their way into my stocking last year & boy are they wonderful! Yes, you feel a little dorky wearing the pop up tape wristlet but I'm telling you - it is a huge help while wrapping presents to have your tape within reach! Added bonus is the Scotch gift wrap cutter which makes cutting the wrapping paper super easy. And while we are taking scissors - these Softtouch Scissors by Fiskars are amazing. I've had mine for years and they still cut better than any other scissors I've ever used.
Wrapping Paper Choices - Every year I choose two patterns for gift wrap and wrap all of Matt's side of the family in one color and all of my family's side in the other. This makes it really easy to see which presents we need to take with us when we are traveling! I also use a separate pattern for gifts for friends to keep things even more organized.
To & From - Instead of attaching gift tags, this year I just got a sharpie and wrote straight on the package who the gift was for. It is easy to see and I think it turned out well!
Tulle, tulle, tulle! - Last year after Christmas my mom got me a few rolls of tulle and I think this what I'll use from here on out. Ribbon tying with tulle is super easy and if you find it on sale it can be pretty inexpensive. Plus you can tie it around a gift without having to have paper for it to still look nice.
Stock up on these items after Christmas to make next year's wrapping even easier and thriftier!
