I love giving gifts… like, a lot. I get really excited when I find something I really want to give someone (whether there is an occasion for it or not), and often I cannot keep it a surprise…. I want to tell them / sometimes I do tell them / or just give it to them. (I swear I am a grownup.)
I also really enjoy wrapping gifts; a skill I believe I picked up from my mom, who’s gift wrapping game is unmatched. This year I did something less traditional with my Christmas trimmings… I found this black patterned butchers paper wrapping in the $1 section at Target (the best.), got a great set of gift bags from H&M (random purchase near the checkout)… and the brown and white paper my roommate found for an absolute bargain and luckily had some left over (and was kind enough to share!). The red frayed cotton ribbon I found at Home Sense ($5.99 for 10 yards) and it added the touch of holiday cheer I wanted.
If you haven’t started wrapping your gifts yet, better get to it!
Five days til Christmas :)
