Wrapping Christmas Presents: Love or Hate?
I have a love-hate relationship with wrapping presents. I love wrapping presents, I’m terrible at it though, but I love doing it.
Every year I buy new wrapping paper despite always having some left over from last year. This year I picked up a few new rolls from The Warehouse, but Farmers also have nice patterns every year too. I also got these Rudolf name tags from The Warehouse, as well as some gift bags and washi tape (would not recommend this tape from the Warehouse, it wasn't very sticky, and I had to use normal tape and then this over the top, so stopped using it).
If you live in Australia, IKEA is a great place to go to get wrapping accessories, like ribbon and twine, I picked up this huge roll of twine last year for like $4, and am going to use it again this year.
For the past few years, I’ve really been enjoying the brown paper with some kind of picture on it for wrapping paper. Last year we had brown wrapping paper that had poinsettias on it, which I am reusing this year, as there was still half and roll left, The Farmers wrapping paper is really good quality paper, it doesn't feel cheap and thin like others do. This year, we have brown wrapping paper with some old school traditional Christmas images and words on it, which while it is very cute, it actually only ended up wrapping one present — yes the present was kinda big but the roll of wrapping paper wasn’t. We also have this red and white paper, which again is very cute, but The Warehouse wrapping paper just feels so cheap compared to the Farmers stuff, but sometimes for $3 or $4, you can't really complain.
So this is how I will be wrapping our Christmas presents this year while continuing my love-hate relationship with wrapping, hopefully I won't end up with too many paper cuts, fingers crossed.
