Y’all, I just have to say I’m AMAZED that I got this gift wrap ordered by November. I honestly thought it was going to be coming my way in December with how crazy things have been lately with a newborn and a toddler running around. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it, but things are chaotic if I’m being honest.
I am super excited about Christmas this year now that we’ve got two little ones. Four is getting old enough to understand the concept of presents (which means I have to hide all of ours or he will open them under the tree), and I can’t wait to celebrate Blake’s first holiday season.
You might remember that I did a quick review of the gift wrap I used last year (that I still LOVE), so I wanted to do another post this year to share what I plan to use. I actually found most of my wrapping paper on Minted and am shocked at how good the quality is. I’ve never ordered wrapping paper from them before, but I’ll definitely be doing it again.
I also found this adorable Anais Floral paper and my velvet ribbon from Ballard Designs. They’re currently having an early bird Black Friday sale with 40% off sitewide with TONS of amazing gift wrap and accessories on sale. Both of the items I bought are marked down right now!
Here’s a look at everything I am using to wrap my gifts this year, including a few essentials you’ll want to have on hand! PS don’t forget to check out our gift guides if you’re still looking for gift ideas.
My 2022 Holiday Gift Wrap
They’re not the most glamorous part of gift wrapping but good scissors can make or break your wrapping experience. Plus, bonus points if they look cute, right!? I’ve spent way more time than I’d care to admit in the past trying to cut my paper evenly thanks to bad scissors so it’s a (small) investment I’m all about making!
Kraft Paper Bags
Because sometimes gifts just can’t be wrapped, I always like to have some classic-looking bags around when I’m wrapping. I love that these are made of kraft paper so I can tie a beautiful velvet ribbon on top with a piece of greenery and call it a day. So easy but so elevated at the same time!
