I LOVE wrapping presents, but I rarely have time to devote to doing it the way I want during the holidays. I’ve been throwing anything I thought would make good wrapping supplies in a drawer after I use up my Studio Calico kits and things I find in the dollar sections at Target and Michaels.

If you like having a cohesive look try sticking to a specific set of colors. I stay with neutrals and use them all year for birthdays and other gifts!

If you don’t use them up things like labels, string, doilies, veneer, clothespins and tags are great to keep on hand to spruce up a package without the traditional bow.

Anything with an initial on it is perfect for this! This tag can double as an ornament later too.

If you’re giving a gift card at the last minute, throw it in a bag and dress it up a bit! Quick and easy.

I keep seeing little packages you can buy this year (in the gift wrapping section) with little clothespins that have veneer shapes on them. I have all of that on hand so I made up a set with just a bit of glue!

Cigar boxes are a perfect way to present a man’s gift and you don’t even have to wrap it!
