So I’ve recently discovered that I have in fact moved on from the world of in person shopping and prefer online shopping much more. As a result of this revelation, I went a little holiday shopping crazy this Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

I literally completed all of my holiday shopping prior to December. Some would say this was a smart idea and that I would, in turn, get a lot of stress out of the way. I disagree; I now had piles of packages staring at me in my bedroom, with nowhere to put them. I couldn’t allow anyone who will be receiving said gifts see these packages, so my only option was to wrap them.

Yes, I already have all of my Christmas gifts purchased and wrapped, waiting in my bedroom for December 25th.  That’s fine, I guess. It gave me an excuse to peruse Pinterest for new and exciting gift-wrapping ideas, since I had so much time and all.

I stumbled upon a few new ways to wrap and decorate gifts for whichever holiday you and your family celebrate. These gift-wrapping ideas would also be appropriate for birthday gifts and so on.

Here are a few of my favorite holiday wrapping ideas:
