‘Tis the Season for Gift Wrapping

One of the best parts of Christmas morning is the shameless act of ruthlessly tearing open all of the presents laid peacefully beneath the ornamented tree. No matter how much time and effort “Santa” put into wrapping every gift all pretty and precise, that wrapping paper’s gunna get torn to shreds as soon as humanly possible.┬áMy point being that, regardless of its inevitable fate to be heaped aside in meaningless pile, gift wrapping is a key part of the Christmas experience.

I basically always gift wrap my totally awesome Christmas presents at the very last minute. Some call it a procrastination problem, and perhaps it is, but at least I have my presents wrapped and ready by Christmas morning.

This post (along with my heart!) goes out to all of the gift wrapping procrastinators in this world. Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!


A few quick and painless solutions to gift wrapping your gifts before the Christmas morning deadline:



Cute! The paper pom is a great handmade topper for any gift! Use green or red construction paper to get your pom poms in the Christmas spirit



Another great gift topper: DIY Paper bows! What’s more? The tutorial’s available on Shoplet’s very own blog!


Use a pencil eraser to polka dot your wrapping paper!



FOR TEACHERS: Wrap up big pink erasers like an individual piece of bubble gum, or a bag of hi-lighers with a note tag reading “You’re the Hi-Lite” of my day
