wrapping paper and ribbon
*This article has been updated for accuracy and additions November, 2019

I think I love holiday wrapping paper and ribbon almost as much as I love the presents! Here are some online sources that you may not have come across.

Here’s a fun gift wrap fact:  44,000 miles of new ribbon (more than enough to wrap around the planet) that shoppers wouldn’t have to buy if we all reused just 2 feet of ribbon from previous years.  (From Real Simple)

Christmas bags are by far the fastest and easiest way to gift wrap!  This site has a great selection ranging in price from $4.50 – $8.00.  And, we love the scalloped tissue paper!  $6.00 for 24 sheets.

Holiday gift bags

I think this Dachshund Christmas Wrapping Paper is about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!  One 22’X 34” is $3.75.


This penguin paper is $7.50 for two 23” x 30” sheets that come rolled up for shipping.


Then there are the matching gift cards that are equally delightful.  They can also be used as place cards.  Each card is 2.5” x 3.5”.  Six cards and red envelopes come in a box for $7.00.


I’m also quite taken with this Santa’s Sleigh paper from the same source.  $7.50 for two 20” x 30” sheets.


These mesh drawstring bags are a quick and easy way to wrap.  Add some tissue paper and you’re good to go. These bags are 8” and a set of twelve is $10.00.


These Snowman bags are great.  They are 3.75” x 9” and come with 6” jute ties.  Twelve bags for $8.99.


This red and white cotton twill ribbon is very festive.  It is ¾” wide.  10 yards is $7.50.


This red glitter tape can easily replace ribbon, and it’s a lot easier to put on!  This roll is ⅜” wide and 3 yards long.  One roll is $6.05.
