Friday Five Faves {#12}

Happy Friday all!

Something Ah-mazing has happened this year — I am done with my Christmas shopping!

I can’t believe it, but I have the internet to thank! I have finished all of my Christmas shopping. Well, except for the perishables that I would like to put in the boys’ stockings. So, I guess technically, I’m not totally done. But I’m done!

Now comes my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE part…

Wrapping them!

I’m that girl. The one that loves for all of the presents to coordinate under the Christmas tree. And I love awesome bows! If I had the time and if the people I was giving them to appreciated them, I would go all out wrapping Christmas presents. For the most part, though…only maybe my mom and my mother-in-law would even notice. Ha!

So instead, I’m left to dream…and that’s what I’m doing today! Dreaming about wrapping presents.


This paper isn’t super Christmas-y, but I LOVE the color anyway, and I might just do it one of these years. It’s a big statement without a lot of work!

Wrapping Presents2



I really like the look of brown paper for wrapping presents. As a matter of fact, I did brown wrapping paper last year, and I stamped everyone’s names on it with white ink and letter stamps. How awesome are those sheet music bows?? Click the link below to learn how to make them.

Look at this color combination!! Are you swooning? I am!

Wrapping Presents4

This is a great idea for more of an individual present or presents for only one person. A whole bunch of these together would blend into each other. But what a great idea for a graduation gift for someone who’s going or been abroad, or if you’re giving the gift of travel or something. So cute!



Wrapping Presents5

This is another brown paper idea, but how great to give a picture, too! Maybe a picture of you and the person you’re giving it to or something? Great idea for extended family and for friends!


Do you share my obsession with wrapping presents or do you dread this task every Christmas?

While I like to wrap, I can't make great bows and people I'm giving them to wouldn't notice. I love your ideas.
