My Favorite Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas & Inspiration

When I wrap a Christmas gift,

I try to keep the recipient in mind

to customize it . . . to make it special just for them.

Or to incorporate it into my decor. You may find someone’s gift

not under a tree, but most likely on a bench or table in the house.

You may find it outdoors too, as they step up to the door,

only to find the packages are for them.

At a large antique mall in Strasburg, Virginia.
