’tis the season and it’s time to start wrapping up all those lovely gifts we get to give to friends and loved ones. wrapping has always been the assigned task my mum gives me at the holidays and it’s one i really enjoy. putting care into the ribbons and wrapping papers i select is fun for me, and adding a personal tag is important, too. Pier 1 imports invited me to select from their pretty holiday wrapping collection this season and i went to town this weekend wrapping up a bunch of pretties.
i like to give a ‘theme’ to my wrapping, and i often choose a more playful and colorful theme for friends and little kids like these cute prints: polkadots, plaids and Holiday Tree wrapping paper and gift bags, packaged with dotted tissue paper and cute Candy Cane Stripe Bows.
for family and business colleagues i might choose an elegant gold & silver look, like this birch embossed wrapping paper and wood grain tissue paper finished with metallic gold Stripe Ribbon which makes for a little bit fancier and more sophisticated look. no matter how you like to wrap your gifts, Pier 1 has a lovely selection and to make it super easy on us this hectic season, it’s all available to order online. let the season begin!
