Inspiration Board : Holiday Gift Wrap

Posted by

Now that you've gotten your Black Friday shopping out of the way, it's time to think about the gift wrap! Have you picked up a copy of the December issue of Living and poured over our very own Gift Guide (beginning on page 35)? If so, we hope you caught the opener featuring some of our favorite new gift wrap. There are so many great sources out there for paper, ribbon and envelopes - be sure to check them out in time for the Holidays!

Clockwise from the top:

Kraft shipping paper with white snowflakes, Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery, $5 from

Screen-printed paper in Golden Berries, $8.50 for three sheets from

Recycled paper in X-Mas tree, $8 for two sheets,

Screen-printed paper in Pine, $8.50 for three sheets from

Paper in Ebony's pattern, $6.50 for two sheets from

Doily hearts in Teal and Green, $4 from

Recycled paper in Bough, $8 for two sheets from

Paper in Green/White, $4 by Grafika,

Ultra-eco paper, Acorn in Warm Red, $8 for two sheets from

All the ribbon in the gift guide opener comes from Angela Liguori. It's no secret that we are big fans of her woven cotton ribbon comes in large spools, perfect for wrapping multiple gifts.

Marcie has long been a fan of the gift wrap from Ikea (yes, Ikea!). Their chic, Swedish inspired paper comes in at about $2.50 per roll.

Our go-to source for envelopes in a range of sizes and colors is Paper Presentation (where we found the pink envelopes pictured in the above gift guide opener).

We also love the sweet scale of Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery manila tags (hanging off the box housing the copper shaker above). They're also a steal at just $2.99 for twelve tags, available at Staples.
