I feel like I go about Christmas gifts backwards. Gift Wrap first, gifts later. I have the cutest wrapping paper and pretty ribbon, monogrammed enclosure cards and freshly inked pens. I find wrapping to be so important. You can spend all this time decorating your tree, but if the presents don’t compliment it, the magic seems lost.
I have rounded up some pretties that would make the most lack luster gift sparkle. My vetting process: If I could put it on my walls or upholster it on a chair, it will make a great wrap! I love the idea of contrasting ribbon (blue and green, white and gold). So many beautiful ways to make your gift wrapped with love!
