One thing I love about the holidays is the gifts! No, I’m not talking about the actual gift. Although, I’m not gonna sit here and lie to you, I do love receiving presents. But, for all intents and purposes, today I’m talking about the gift wrap.
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t always enjoyed this part of gift giving. It’s just in the last couple of years that I’ve acquired a fondness for it. As my family will attest to, I was actually THE worst gift preparer in the bunch. I always considered it a chore and would keep putting it off as long as possible. I finally hit rock bottom when, a few years ago, (less than I’d like to admit) my little brother asked my mom one christmas “Do you think Caroline could wrap her presents before Christmas morning, so we don’t have to wait to open presents?”
I know, sad right? Well, things have changed now and dressing up gifts has become part of the whole experience for me. There are so many creative and beautiful gift wrap ideas out there on the www. I like the non-traditional ones best.
Here are a few of my favorite gussied up gifts.
Here’s some festive wrapping paper for you to consider when thinking about your glamming up your gifts.
Thanksgiving is almost here! I’m so excited to eat way too much all day and spend time with family & friends. Whenever we have Thanksgiving at our house, one of my pre-feast jobs is always to make & set out all the place cards. So in honor of my Thanksgiving duty, I wanted to share some super festive DIY place card holder ideas that I found around the www.
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND!
Since it’s now November and the weather is getting colder everyday, I’d say it’s officially time to bring out the fur blankets. (Faux, of course!) George absolutely loves cuddling into one of them, not only because they are super cozy, but, also because he looks so chic all wrapped up in one. Our favorite place to display/snuggle a faux is on the bed – like in these bedrooms….
They add such a comfy vibe to a bedroom.
They would make really great gifts this holiday season, too. Here are some of my faves.
