Gift Wrap from the Container Store

by Jamie Sanford on December 9, 2011

I would love to think of myself as someone who takes hours and hours to wrap gifts to perfection. Unfortunately, I’m not as coordinated as that would require, so I end up using gift bags a lot. This year, I am boxing up gift bags and tissue paper on the bottom of boxes, which are then filled with gifts to send to my family.  I will put everything in its proper bag when I get there.  Not too exciting.  I got a catalog from The Container Store though, and it has inspired me to want to try harder…next year.

Let’s start with cute wrapping paper.

Tiny Ornament Collage Paper, 12′ x 30″, $8.99.

Festive Felines Gift Wrap, 10′ x 30″, $7.95.

Ooh, this wood grain one is so chic. Wrap Sheets Woodgrain Pkg/2, 22″ x 34″, $7.49.

I have to post the deer one, naturally. Fab Deer Gift Wrap, 10′ x 30″, $7.95.

This is cute, even though it does look to me like one of those pictures to test color-blindness. Very Merry Dots Gift Wrap, 8′ x 30″, $9.95.

Cute boxes that don’t require wrapping are perfect for making you look like an amazing gift-wrapper with minimal effort.

I could put something in here, close it up, label it and I’m done! Set of 3 Rectangular Boxes, $24.99.

For tinier gifts, themed takeout containers are perfect. I also love that boxes like this can be re-used. Peppy Mints Takeout Container, $3.50.

If you must resort to gift cards…

Holiday Kaleidoscope Gift Card Pouch, $1.95.

Perfectly Plaid Gift Card Pouches (set of 2), $2.95.

Loot from the Hoot gift card holders (set of 2), $2.95. You can also check out the entire Owl Item Collection on Not So Basic Black here.

Finally, the labels!

Lace Gift Stickers (36), $2.99.

If you want everything to match, you can get that at The Container Store. Very Merry stickers (36), $2.99.

I love the idea of that wood grain wrapping with a cute little sticker featuring some of our arctic friends. Arctic Friends stickers(36), $2.99.
