I LOVE giving. I love to give any time of the year to everyone. Gifts are my favorite part of Christmas. I love to help make people’s lives easier and more blessed through something I could make or buy for them. Christmas is a super fun time of year. I used to stress out about it, but I have learned to let old feelings go and make new traditions. I’ve learned to focus on time spent with loved ones and making memories and not on the hustle and the bustle and the people fighting over sales at the store.

Christmas is what you make it.

Christmas just like any other day is what you make it. You can have the feeling you want by just adjusting where your focus is. If the giving stresses you out, cut your list down and simplify. If the cooking stresses you out, order some pizzas the day before and heat them up on Christmas. It’s a time for love and joy, not perfection and stress.

I LOVE rustic wrapping. Brown paper, twine, mason jars, raffia and other things that look like Laura Ingalls would have received her gift in them are really my cup of tea. I think they make gifts look awesome. I love coming up with great vintage looking wrappings for my gifts.



 

I also love cute shaped boxes. I love giving treats like a cupcake or cookies in a cute container that shares the Christmas spirit. Festive wrappings make your gifts look awesome.

Wrap gifts according to your style.

Oriental Trading has great prices on their tissue paper, wrappings, and ribbons. I love using curly ribbon. It has a hundred uses and one roll will last forever. These rolls they have are 500 feet. It’s good quality ribbon for adorning your holiday packages and make your gifts look awesome. Making curly bows, tying up packages, and even making hair bows for little girls are all great ways to utilize this stuff.

Oriental Trading Company offered me some Christmas wrap in exchange for my honest opinion about them on the blog. All opinions on the wrap are completely my own.

Tissue paper can make your gifts shine too. I love to get a big multi-pack of tissue and use it throughout the year. You can stuff it in your gift bags to make them look more festive. You can fluff it up in a basket to make your basket items at the right height or to keep them in place and add a pop of color. You can wrap an article of clothing in it inside your gift box. It’s super versatile. So adorable!

Save money by buying wrapping that can be used for many seasons.

I prefer gift wrapping supplies that can be used any season. I love taking a festive black and white polka dot paper and tying it with a big red bow to make it look Christmassy. You can use the same paper and tie it with a white bow for a men’s birthday gift earlier in the year. You can use the polka dot paper to wrap a child’s toy gift and make a bow out of multi-colored curly ribbon that a child would love.
