I LOVE wrapping paper!
True story: when my husband and I went to Italy on our honeymoon, I took an enormous suitcase. The fact that it held lots of cute clothes was a plus, but the real reason for the ridiculously large baggage was to have plenty of space to bring home large sheets of Florentine wrapping paper.
Wrapping up gifts in gorgeous paper and arranging them under the tree is the best. Over the years I’ve found some great resources for festive paper, so if you want to up your wrapping game, here are 5 great places to buy gift wrap.
House of Harris
One day I hope to have a room with gorgeous House of Harris wall paper, but in the meantime I'm content knowing I can have a tree surrounded by gifts wrapped in their beautiful paper! It’s a Thoughty favorite, and we love to use it in our gifts because of its superior quality and it's stunning designs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and/or pricing.
A gift wrap aficionado’s dream store. Paper Source has so many great designs and quality paper. If you live near a store, it offers fun gift-wrapping classes! And don’t tell my husband, but at Paper Source you can find some of the very same Florentine paper I had him lug back from Italy. More details here.
Snow and Graham
This Chicago-based boutique stationary brand has gorgeous and whimsical letterpress designs. Sold by the sheet, so you can pick out a variety, but I can't get enough of these nutcrackers!. Visit shop here.
You can always pick up a good roll of gift wrap at Target. The current collection from Sugar Paper is especially nice!
There are so many great options on Etsy. Two favorites are:
Elvira van Vredenburgh Designs is out of England, but she ships to the US for free if you order $35 or more. Her background in textile design is evident in her gorgeous, colorful papers.
The Detroit Card Company is a great shop for fun, whimsical, graphic designs. Visit shop.
Happy wrapping everyone!
