Gift Wrap Ideas

If you’re like me haven’t wrapped a single gift yet and have piles of unwrapped presents still in shopping bags stashed under every bed and closet in the house then this post is for you.

Seriously though, I have declared myself the worlds most unorganized gift wrapper. One February a few years back I found an unwrapped present still in the shopping bag with the receipt for Bryan under the bed . I had stashed it and forgot about. Whoops!

Still my unorganized state never stops me from gawking at creatively wrapped gifts topped with the perfectly tied bow. Here’s a few of my favorites to get me in the gift wrapping mood.

I find men the hardest to shop for. Bryan makes it a little easier on me since he has very specific interests that you can usually tap into and find him something he’ll really like. But what to buy for the your brother, friend, or brother-in-law can sometimes get a little difficult. Here are some of my favorite gift options for the guys in your life.

As we head deeper and deeper into the holiday season parties, get-together, and events of all kind begin filling up the pages of our social calendars. It’s such a nice touch to bring something small to the event. I like the idea of having a few of these things tucked away to give for the next even that comes along. Here I’ve rounded up a few specials things you could have in your stash to give this holiday season or all year round.

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Ornaments

04.12.12

It’s no secret around my house that I have a thing for Christmas ornaments, I usually buy a few special ones every year and have been doing this for several years now. To me there are few things more fun than looking though all of the decorations of years past and placing them one by one on the tree. Over the years my tree has become a living memory to Christmas past.

This year I’ve been saving my favorite ornaments in a folder for the past few months growing my collection of the most special ones I love. I rounded up some of my favorites here and can’t wait to share them. Happy decorating!

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

0

03.12.12

When picking out gifts for the holidays I always tend to overlook the small things like stocking stuffers. My mom was really great about stocking stuffers and it was one of the things I looked forward to most on Christmas morning. We always went to church early Christmas morning and would open gifts afterwards, but the stocking were free reign as soon as we woke still sleepy eyed and in pajamas. Although tiny these small touches can really make lasting gift giving memories.

Needless to say despite my mom’s great example I other the other hand usually forget about them until the last second and end up getting things I’m not entirely in love with. This year I’m planning to make a change. Below are some of my favorite stocking stuffer ideas for Christmas this year.
