So, November is here. Do you know what that means? Time to get ready for Christmas! That is, if you haven't started already. As I starting thinking about/decorating for/celebrating Christmas, I thought we'd put together a little series for our our festive ideas! This won't be everyday, and it will be mixed in with some regular posts, but when you see this logo you'll know Christmas fun is coming! And if you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know. We have almost two months of Christmas preparation ahead of us!
Now without further ado, let's get started! I pretty much finished my Christmas shopping this weekend so I'm ready to get wrapping. I figure since Christmas only comes once a year I might as well make the most of it and get a little fancy with my wrapping. So I'm starting with a little Pinterest hunting. I love brown paper (and already bought a couple rolls at Dollar Tree) and I also like the idea of wrapping in print (like book pages or newspaper. So here are a few favorite ideas to inspire my wrapping.
I love the pendant garland here. This might be more of a birthday wrapping, though, with fun colors.
These are homemade hand warmers (to keep your hands warm in your pockets). They might make fun & useful gift toppers.
I love the idea of wrapping gifts in reusable shopping bags instead of disposable paper. These ones roll up to fit in your purse.
Of course I'll let you know more specific details once I get started with the wrapping. So what's your wrapping philosophy? Do you prefer to keep it simple? Do you like bright colored paper? Or big bows? Or are you more of a gift-bagger?
