Wrapped presents

As kids, Christmas wrapping paper was a means to an end. We would tear off the paper separating us from our precious gifts, tossing it to the side without a second thought. Now, we can appreciate the value of a good gift wrap. Sitting under the tree, wrapped gifts tease us until Christmas morning. Let’s be honest—the presents catch everyone's eyes, so their appearances better be up to par with the rest of our Christmas decor. Jovial red and green boxes and gifts handsomely wrapped in merry patterns set the jolly scene and the tone for gifts to come. That’s why we’ve picked out our favorite wrapping papers to adorn your gifts in festive, yet stylish, flare. This is the kind of paper that you can’t help but unwrap gracefully rather than ripping into without care. If Santa has an eye for style this year, he’ll wrap every gift in his slay with these pretty papers.
