Turn an inexpensive clothes hamper into a gift wrap organization station with this idea from Better Homes and Gardens. Keep the lid propped open and staple a few lengths of ribbon or string to the inside. Use the string to secure tissue paper, ribbon, and other wrapping essentials to the inside of the lid. Toss rolls of your favorite wrapping paper in the main storage area and add pockets to the outside to keep smaller items like tape and scissors within easy reach.
If you’re feeling a little more crafty and are up for a bit of a sewing challenge, try this cool idea from 2 Little Hooligans. This gift wrap station makes clever use of an old stool, turning it upside down to create storage for wrapping paper rolls. The blog shows patterns for creating various sized pockets for storing gift bags, ribbon, tape, and scissors. Once your supplies are neatly organized, warm up a cup of hot chocolate and wrap ‘till your heart’s content!
