There are two things that I love to do that drive most people crazy, painting walls and wrapping presents. Since it’s obvious we are talking about wrapping presents, hence the photos up above, let me tell you what saves my Christmas wrapping sanity.
Step One: Bottle of Wine
Step Two: Assigned Wrapping Paper
Step Three: Bows and Ribbon
Step Four: Tape
Step One: Simple people… Open some wine, put on some holiday music and relax. Pretty presents help initiate even more anticipation for what is inside…plus with everyone instagramming these days…you know you want to be known as #professionalwrapper
Step Two: This is my number one tip for wrapping presents… Assign Wrapping Paper. Pick your theme, buy your paper and then assign it as you see fit. I buy one general kind for misc. wrapping and then one for each member of my family. That way, when wrapping if step one gets in the way you at least know who’s present is who if you miss the tag.
Step Three: Do it. It is worth it. Don’t be stingy
Step Four: Tape… Look do not and I repeat, do not go stingy on the type of tape you buy. Get easy to pull, sticky, and easy to cut tape. This is not the time of year to buy that shitty tape that you can’t cut because it’s cheap. Oh and double-sided… Use more cautiously as you progress through your wrapping (if step one is involved for you).
