Bed piled with holiday gifts.....look familiar?

Photo by Chris Everard
I have been patiently waiting a 8 months to use this spectacular holiday photo. And the other 7-8 Chris Everard and Polly Wreford Christmas photos you will see coming up over the next 3.5 weeks. These stunning photos will be used along with my own gift wrap efforts to hopefully inspire you in your own personal gift wrap efforts this year. Along with using my own supplies, I am heading locally (in Canada) and across our border to stores such as Costco (Sam's Club), Target, to see how creative I can be with their gift wrap products. I know many readers will be loading up on wrapping supplies from these stores so let's see how creative I can be with using more generic but less-expensive options. I think this approach will serve your needs best at this time of year. I will sneak in some great gift ideas, some gift tips, and as many ideas as I can come up with over the next 23 days (or is it 22?). Gotta go..........my helper elves just showed up and we better get to it.

  7. If I had shingles, I'd just want to stay in bed and have the presents brought to me. Hopefully you're feeling better Sande. What a fabulous photo. I'm looking forward to your tips on wrapping. Usually I'm doing it so last minute that I'm glad to just have it done and under the tree by Christmas eve.
