25 days of Christmas…Home Tour (day 11) Gift Wrapping…

A Christmas Home Tour wouldn’t be complete without packages under the Christmas Tree…

In keeping with the season of giving…I thought it would be nice to take a look at the many options we have when it comes to wrapping up the gifts we have so carefully and thoughtfully purchased for our loved ones.

Of course, there is the option of having your gift wrapped by gift wrapping expert in the department store where you purchased the gift.  There is the option of dropping your gift in a gift bag…adding a little tissue paper  and your good to go.  You can throw all caution to the wind and go with a roll or two of wrapping paper that catches your eye, cats in Christmas hats or sledding snowmen.

My gift wrapping choices have run from one extreme to the next.  I lived through and endured years of the Christmas gift bag. I have embraced the use of plain brown paper and packing string. However, there is always the official Santa paper that is reserved the gifts that are delivered by Santa Clause…

There have been years when the presents under the tree were wrapped in remnants of Christmas paper from previous years and adorned with the a colorful assortment of bows.

Most recently, I have taken great care in choosing a color theme for the annual wrapping of the gifts  My husband has been entrusted with selecting the wrapping paper and I have to say that he has a great eye for task…

This year our packages will be wrapped in color coordinated paper selected by the Man of the house. They will be tied up with ribbon and dotted with bows and lovely name tags.  Some will be hidden in the wonderful burlap Santa sacks I found at Target…

Here’s wishing you a Santa sack filled with all of your Christmas wishes.
