gift wrap center

Did you know? Christmas is coming. 🙂 I am already buying gifts and want to be ready when it’s time to wrap them. It’s time to take stock of my gift wrap center and make a list of items I need. Tape? Scissors? Ribbon?…etc., etc., etc.

If you don’t have a gift wrap center, consider setting one up. It can be as small as a box that slides into a drawer, or as big as a cupboard dedicated to gift wrapping. You will find it invaluable all year long, but especially so at Christmas time!

This cupboard belonged to DH’s grandparents. I use the drawer and the doors below to store the items needed to wrap gifts. We use it as a gift wrap center year round, but, as I said, it is essential at Christmas time. The dining room table is just to the left in this picture and it makes the ideal place to wrap presents. Even the kids find this the perfect spot for wrapping presents.

I use boxes in the drawer to organize the supplies needed for the gift wrap center. Left to right: tissue paper, scissors/tapes/pens/etc., misc. ribbons/ ribbons on spools.

This old crock holds wrapping paper. During the year, it’s birthday paper, wedding paper, etc., and the crock sits in the corner behind the door. During the holiday season it holds Christmas paper and sits next to the cupboard where it is within reach.

Last year, I found this lovely old market basket in an antique store and decided to use it as the gift wrap storage container. I tied a big blue bow to the handle and it worked out great. The basket on the floor holds extra ribbons.

The shelves in the bottom of the cupboard, behind the doors, holds boxes and bags, small gifts, etc.

    What a treasure that cabinet is. I know you take great care of it.

    My gift wrap center is a plastic bin with paper, boxes, bags in it and a decorative hat box that holds ribbons & bows. The hat box adds to my LR decor year round. The plastic bin is in a closet. I usually wrap on the DR table or my desk in my sewing room. It is easy to grab these 2 items to take to either spot. I have tape & scissors in both rooms so those are always easily accessible.

    Thanks for sharing your set up.

    HUGS, Georgia
