The other day one of my friends and I were bouncing random fun facts back and forth. I completely tricked my friend into believing that I don't actually like anything about Christmas and that instead I just pretend I do. I sure hope that y'all are able to see right through that trickery and I am sure that all of the holiday posts lately are an immediate cue as to the fact that that was a joke as I am in fact a huge fan of all things related to the holiday. That's even including wrapping presents and baking for the holiday season. While I din't exactly go the traditional route of brown craft paper and red string I can't help but think that the wrapping paper I chose may have that classic beat.
This year I had an absolute BLAST shopping for everyone on my list. I came home with presents for everyone and most of them were even already wrapped and ready to be placed under the tree. If you know me at all you may know that I can be a *bit* of a perfectionist and unfortunately wrapping presents is no different. When it comes to any sort of paper good like stationery or school supplies I could spend hours coming to a conclusion about the best combination of colors and items to pair together and I've recently discovered that that tendency extends into the gift wrapping realm as well. I went into Target and was immediately drawn to their Sugar Paper gift wrapping line and I think there was a point when I was holding all of the different patterned wrapping paper rolls when I realized that 12 different patterns wasn't necessarily practical.
I ended up picking out a classic red and gold Merry Christmas roll and then couldn't choose between the mittens and hats so naturally I ended up with a roll of each. And as if those decisions weren't challenging enough then it was time to choose packaging accessories and let me just tell you that Target wasn't lacking in this department either. Since most of the wrapping I chose had gold in it I settled on gold and white twine and some fun scalloped gold gift tag stickers.
With a bit of peppermint coffee, Christmas music, and a few M&M breaks my mom and I powered through most of the remaining presents and were able to place them under the tree making the fact that Christmas is only four days away feel a bit more real.
If you still have some present wrapping to do and are looking for a little bit of excitement in the form of wrapping paper then hurry to target (or shop online) to get some for your presents!
