My hunt for paper usually ended at Container Store's "Gift Wrapping Wonderland." LOVE THAT STORE. AH.
This year, since the budget does not allow for such frivolous activities :), I have taken to admiring a lot of different wrapping styles and ideas. I love vintage "Anthropologie-ish" detailed ideas using lots of fabric and textures as well as creative recycled ideas using maps, newspaper, buttons, etc. Check out some beautiful gifts below!
There's something just so lovely about opening a beautiful gift. The gift could be a pack of string cheese and if it was wrapped like this I'd think it was the best gift in the world! Ha! Presentation is everything :)
