I love gift wrap

I love wrapping gifts more than receiving gifts. I know this is probably just one in a long list of items that makes me a weirdo, but I will shout out this fact (or blog about it). Maybe it's just the plethora of pretty patterns to choose from. Maybe, more likely, it's a physical manifestation of the fact that growing up we did not celebrate holidays and therefore did not give or receive many presents. Call it what you will, I love me some gift wrap.

And this weekend I was reminded of the fact that The Container Store not only carries one of my favorite items in the world -- containers! -- but also pretty gift wrap. Specifically, I was happy with this little find I picked up for a weekend baby shower (printed on recycled paper, no less).

Oh, and I'm also a sucker for some grosgrain ribbon to finish off the gift wrap ensemble.

There are few pleasures in life better than some adorable gift wrap.


  1. Nice! We were recently at the Container Store but I was too busy following my toddler around to browse their gift wrap (he was pushing a small metal cart on wheels). Next time I'll have to take a closer look.

    I write a blog about gift wrapping ( and love to see people share their gifts. Thanks!

  2. I am with you Steph-- nothing makes me more happy than a perfectly wrapped gift. Also, grosgrain ribbon is the best.
