I don't know if anyone else ever feels the same, but the holidays never appear to be over until the Christmas tree has been taken down. Every year I try my hardest to keep the tree up for as long as I can, but my father always insists on taking it down before his return to work after being off for a couple of weeks. One of my favourite parts of Christmas has always been the pile of presents under the tree. No, not the fact that I'm getting presents but just looking at all of the beautifully wrapped gifts propped up against each other. I love seeing the look of excitement in the eyes of others' when they peak at the gifts trying to figure out what is for who. So here's a quick recap as to what I wrapped up to place under the tree this year. I tried to keep within a theme of pink, white and silver, although some presents were more difficult than others to wrap and I had to use whatever remains of wrapping paper that I had left in order not to waste any.
I've always had a distaste for sticker tags and really wanted to use cardboard tags with twine to address my gifts to this year, but in short of my late wrapping, these adorable metallic tags were all that I could find at Target.
I'm already excited for next year's holidays and picked up some great discounted wrapping paper from Target and Loblaws!
