Half the fun of giving gifts to your friends and family is wrapping them! Gift wrapping allows you to get creative during the festive season and presenting a gift to your loved ones that they’ll love before they even know what’s beneath the paper.
The first step is of course to pick your wrapping paper; every year stores come out with tons of beautiful new patterns so the options are endless! If you’re going for a whimsical look, choose a vibrant floral or watercolor pattern. If classy Christmas is more your style, opt for a simple metallic or marble pattern.
