This year I went with silver kraft paper, black and white reindeer themed belliband, and red ribbons, twine and tags.
It starts off fun. I carefully fold the edges into crisp lines. Tie perfect bows. But after awhile as the pile to wrap seems to grow rather than decrease, I get a little over it! Especially when the sticky tape doesn't stick to the silver paper.
But it's done for another a year. I think it looks very smart under our tree.
