Tip Tuesday – Gift Wrap Go-To


Set up a go-to, well-lit station for holiday gift wrapping. I like to stand at my ironing board, but any clear surface (away from your kids’ prying eyes) will do the trick.  Organize holiday gift bags, paper, tissue, labels, tape, and pens together in one place, separate from other crafts or year-round wrapping materials.  

Now that you have a designated space, you can wrap a few gifts whenever you get the chance.
Play your favorite holiday songs, or listen to audiobooks while you wrap—it should be an enjoyable activity, not a chore!

If you are mailing gifts, make sure you have clear tape, cardboard boxes, and packing materials, and keep an eye on mailing deadlines coming up!
