Festive Holiday Gift Wrapping

Disclaimer: you might want to put on a little Mariah Carry before reading…

… because this post is all about gift wrapping [which will drive you insane without music and spiked hot cocoa]. To be honest, my procrastination skills mean every box you see in these photos is actually empty. Empty. I need to start taking my own advice and shop EARLY.

For those of you who are more responsible than me, here are ideas for wrapping your presents this year. The secret? Festive accessories mask botched taped jobs.

Because really, there’s nothing better than watching your favorite people rip open a holiday surprise…
