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:

Sheryl Sandberg’s Take On Leaning In, Beyoncé And Bringing College Women Together

Empowering women in college to come together, to be there for one another, to support, encourage and invest in one another – it sounds like such a plain idea, doesn’t it? “Don’t colleges already do this?” you’re probably asking yourself, “Don’t women already feel supported and empowered?” While the idea may feel so “unoriginal” and “uninspired,” […]

Why My Father Is My Hero For Helping To Clean Up Ground Zero
