I spent most of yesterday wrapping up the laundry room makeover I’ve been working on (I can’t wait to share) and at the end of the day- I went on a little gift wrap & packaging shopping spree on Amazon. Over the weekend, I had help putting up my tree and now that it’s looking gorgeous (another blog post I’m eager to share), I feel like the base is lonely without at least a couple packages down there. I can never seem to turn my design brain off and it feels out of balance. I wanted to get a jump start and order gift wrap… or maybe even wrap a few faux presents for styling purposes so my tree doesn’t look so lonely or top heavy. All of that to say- I rounded up the very best packaging on Amazon late last night and wanted to share! Most of it actually works for any holiday or occasion. I don’t usually gravitate toward “Christmas” looking things. Click through to see what I found.

01: kraft wrapping paper // 02: maroon velvet ribbon // 03: boxes with magnetic closure // 04: gift box with bow // 05: gift tags // 06: marbled paper // 07: large white gift box // 08: black & white ribbon // 09: felt basket // 10: two inch velvet ribbon // 11: matte wrapping paper // 12: kraft gift bags // 13: satin ribbon // 14: copper scissors // 15: pre-tied bows // 16: chevron ribbon // 17: tissue paper // 18: gift basket with filler // 19: striped tissue paper // 20: white paper gift bag // 21: box set with bakers twine // 22: gift wrap set // 23: silver velvet ribbon // 24: crinkle paper
90% of the items in the collage come in different colors, sizes, and quantities… it’s definitely worth clicking through if you’re shopping for something specific- like velvet ribbon, for example. #23 comes in multiple colors- you can see a preview of this exact ribbon in the stocking DIY I shared yesterday. Other things I love using from this roundup? Plain matte wrapping paper (#11) is super classic and easy to dress up with ribbon. I always buy #21 for neighbor gifts… I like to fill the boxes with holiday cookies, tie a bow with bakers twine, and spread the holiday cheer around our neighborhood. I also send professional gifts to my clients and any of these gift boxes are perfect for that: #3, #4, #7, or #18. They look classy and have magnetic closures. I’ve also found that the heavy gift boxes I just mentioned, look great repurposed in closets or on built-ins (which is why I prefer the neutral colors). I’m all about recycling gift wrap and packaging!
The above image is from last year. We had just moved into our new house and I quickly put up our tree and wrapped two gifts to make it feel more homey. What you’re not seeing is a giant stack of moving boxes in the background. Haha! It’s hard to believe that same room now looks like this. I’ll have another One Room Challenge update for you guys tomorrow… spoiler alert- we have millwork! It’s also weird seeing my hair looking so long in that photo, since I recently had it chopped. A lot has happened in a year! I digress… remember when I shared this easy DIY gift wayyy back in 2016? I still like this idea and would like to do these again- maybe this time with sophisticated velvet ribbon (#10).

I know I’m talking holiday a little early this year, but I’m trying to get organized and share ideas before it’s actually time to start decorating! Happy Tuesday, friends. I hope this was helpful if you’re also in the market for gift wrap or enjoy pretty packaging!
