Prepare for pretty presents!

I love Christmas presents, but not for the reason you think. Yes, receiving chic items off your wish list from loved ones is exciting, but I love shopping for presents even more than I love getting them, and most importantly, I love wrapping presents!

Every year I venture to the cute stationery store on our main street that sells gorgeous, high-quality wrapping paper with cute prints and designs. I stock up on ribbons and twine and pom poms, and obsess over which gift tags to purchase. I have spent years perfecting the art of the gift paper fold, and I love taking on the challenge of wrapping a particularly odd-shaped or oversized gift. 

So of course, my Pinterest is overflowing with wrapping inspiration at the moment, and I thought I'd share my favorite ideas with you guys. Now that you've found those stylish gifts for everyone on your list, it's time to wrap them up in style!
