Along with the giving of gifts at Christmas time comes the annoying task of choosing Christmas wrapping paper, wrapping the gift, and hoping the gift stays wrapped until it is opened. I suppose there are those that enjoy wrestling with Christmas wrapping paper, but I am not one of them. When I have only one or two gifts to wrap, it can be quite a pleasurable experience to wrap a gift and make it look just so, but when you have twenty or thirty, it just becomes a pain. We still do it, however, but despite the pain of wrapping so many, the joy of watching loved ones open those gifts is beyond compare.
The biggest problem with Christmas wrapping paper is that it is often hard to use, and if you don’t get the right stuff, it rips when you least expect it, or doesn’t cover the gift properly. Christmas wrapping paper is often a pain to store, and by the time the next year rolls around, the paper you may have been saving has probably been crushed beyond any hope of saving.
If you have this problem, you have to find a way to save it. Some people like to buy Christmas wrapping paper right after the holiday to use the next year, and this must also be saved safely or the money you saved means nothing. You can buy bins that are especially made to store Christmas wrapping paper, or any other paper for that matter, safely and securely. You can also store tape, scissors, bows, and ribbons in the same container. When you do this, your Christmas wrapping paper is safe and secure, and left in exactly the same condition it was when you put it in there.
If Christmas wrapping paper really gets on your nerves, you have other options. Gift bags are very popular, and can be used to wrap all sorts of gifts. Many people use these almost exclusively, but there may always be a need to have at least some paper at your disposal. There may be an awkward sized gift that won’t fit into a bag without ripping it, or a gift that is simply too big for a bag. In these cases, it’s nice to have at least a few rolls of Christmas wrapping paper on hand. You can even use simply colored papers that can be used for an occasion throughout the year.
