Wrapping gifts takes two resources people don't tend to have a lot of - time and money. I'll be honest, I don't like to wrap gifts. I used to love to wrap gifts... when I had a lot more time and since wrapping gifts tends to take a lot of time, it's not a favorite activity. It takes time and money to buy the wrapping supplies, time to find all the supplies (scissors, tape, ribbon). Let's not even talk about the money wasted buying duplicate wrapping supplies because we couldn't find what we needed at home. And, if it's an awkward shaped package, it takes even more time to wrap.
Last Christmas I hired my oldest kid to wrap all our Christmas gifts! I think I paid her an extra $20 in addition to her regular allowance.
So, I'm sure it's happened to you too. You battle the Saturday morning crowds at the local discount store only come home with some gifts that need to be wrapped for a couple of birthday parties your kids are attending that afternoon. You then spend more time looking for wrapping supplies than you did buying them. If you've been there, you've probably felt like a failure as an unorganized mom. At this point a gift wrap organizer becomes a blessing.
By having gift wrap storage you manage to keep all the things you need for wrapping gifts in one place, and you save precious time. You don't have to look for paper or ribbons or anything else all over your house. You just go to your organized gift wrap storage and 'wrap away'.
Organizers for gift wrapping are great because they typically have 'a place for everything' you need to wrap a gift. Your scissors are right there along with the tape! Hallelujah. If you want to be fancy and add ribbons they're there too! And, what a money saver your gift wrap organizer will be at Christmas. Instead of just picking up duplicate Christmas wrap, tissue paper, and name cards, you'll be able to do a quick inventory of what you need before buying your Christmas wrapping supplies.
And, gift wrap storage doesn't have to take up a lot of free space in your home. There's gift wrap organizers that you can put under your bed, or you can hang on doors and walls.
You can also dedicated and organize a closet as a unique wrapping station where all of your gift wrapping supplies are neat and tidy waiting to be used.
Do what works best for you and your schedule. The most important thing is to 'create a place' for your gift wrapping needs. The time invested now in a gift wrap organizer will pay for itself in the future with less stress, less time, and less money spent on wrapping gifts.
