Twelve Days of Christmas - Christmas Gift Wrap

I LOVE our gift wrap this year! I always do, but I am especially fond of it this time round.

Planning what the presents are going to be wrapped in is one of my favourite part of this time of year. I really get into it! I enjoy all the little details, and I do enjoy having a theme so they all look beautiful sitting under the tree together. When I started thinking about this year, what seemed like months ago now, I had a completely different idea in mind to what we ended up with. I originally wanted navy velvet ribbon, to go with our favourite brown paper and string, but it became quite difficult to find. And the only ribbon I could get hold of was quite expensive.

I started looking at other options, and I just couldn't find anything I liked as much as the navy. Then one day, while Paul and I were picking up milk in Sainsburys, I spotted it! The most beautiful gift wrap, and I fell in love! We went back the next week and picked up rolls of paper, a couple of gift bags, and boxes of ribbon. They also had boxes of what could just as easily be tree decorations, and in fact, I think I will keep a few to put on our trees next year. I also liked the idea that other people may even do the same. They are beautiful little additions to the brown paper luggage tags we like to use. I love the combination of the gold and green gift wrap with our usual brown paper, there is something very traditional and yet modern about it. And I love how the packs of ribbon we picked up come with a roll of black, not your usual Christmas colour but so pretty.

If you're still on the hunt for gift wrap, Sainsburys have some beautiful things, and it's all 3 for 2! We have nearly finished with our wrapping, still a few little presents left to do but they wont take to long.

Have you finished wrapping all of your presents?
