Happy December! This has to be the fastest year ever…is it me, or has it really flown by?! I’m so excited to celebrate our first Christmas in the new house…and am pretty much already in a big, festive frenzy! Thanks to all the great sales, I’m almost done with my shopping, too…now it’s up to the UPS man to get them here, then it’s on to the wrapping.
Wrapping gifts is one of my favorite parts of Christmas…I love making each one special, and imagining the recipient not only opening the gift, but getting excited just to see the package. The last few years I’ve used photo tags and ornaments from Minted to adorn our packages…they make the gifts extra special, and are also sweet keepsakes for next year’s tree.
One year we created homemade felt gift tags.
And another we cut monograms out of paper.
We give a lot of gift cards, but still like to make them fun to receive…
My talented friend Stefanie invited me to join her and several creative bloggers to share our favorite Pretty Packages in her 2015 Inspired Wrapping Series today, and I’ve already pinned so many great ideas!
And are you still looking for great gifts to fill your packages? Macy’s started their popular Friends & Family Event today, and there are tons of great gift ideas and deals to be found. Just click each item for more info, or the links below.
Now would be a good time to grab my favorite flamingo sheets we used in our ORC Bedroom, too, while they’re on super sale! I even have the polka dots on Little Miss’s bed. Hey Santa, feel free to leave the OPI All-Stars Pack under the tree for me!
Have you finished your shopping…or started it yet? What about the wrapping? Check out yesterday’s Dressing Room Diaries for more fun ideas, and stop by tomorrow to see our new Christmas tree in all her shining glory!
