5 Ways to Add Glamour to Your Holiday Gifts

brown-gold-and-white-holler-dollar-christmas-wrap-3We’re nearing mid December, so no pressure….but, it’s time to get wrapping! Even if you’re still searching for the perfect gift, here are 5 ideas on how to dress it up and add some glamour to your wrapping. As my mother always said…the wrapping IS part of the gift!

  1. Add sparkle – nothing says “celebrate” like a little glitter
  2. Top your gift with candy – if you have some extra candy canes in the kitchen, slide one under the bow
  3. Tie on an ornament, jingle bells or the first letter of the recipient’s name
  4. Add a spring of greens, berries or pinecones
  5. Layer your ribbons, so that your gift has textural interest and depth

Sugar Paper x Target for the Holidays

TH_Image_2048x2048

I know what you’re thinking. It’s TOO early to think about the holidays. But, I just don’t want you to miss the “about to launch” Sugar Paper for Target Holiday collection….available in stores Nov 1st. Sugar Paper is one of my all time favorite letterpress companies and with this new collaboration, they may just be my new go-to for holiday gift wrap essentials.

In my efforts to enjoy the holidays, I want to be organized and have all my tools handy. The collection will have wrapping paper, ribbons, tie-ons and even glam boxes that will only require a bow. Available in sophisticated black, jingle bell red, neon coral and beautiful blue…there is a hue for everyone.02-SugarPaper-TargetHoliday15_2048x2048 03-SugarPaper-TargetHoliday15_2048x2048

To see (and hear) more about the concepts behind what will surely be THE collection of the season, just click on the video below. There’s one particular item that you can hang on the tree, add to a package or use as a place card. Let me know if you know what I mean!!

Here’s to having the holidays all wrapped up!

A Sprig of Greens

Sometimes we think that the holidays have to be about the grand gestures. Not so. 
The small, thoughtful gestures can be just as meaningful. And, the same goes with gift wrap. Sometimes just a touch of fresh greens on the simplest of wrapping can shine bright.
Grab that kraft paper, string and add a touch of green. After all, “brown paper packages tied up with string” made into a very well known song. 
Did you happen to see the Sound of Music last night?!
Wishing you simple pleasures, during a month that can sometimes feel magical and other times manic! Here’s to all that’s magical!
