Last week I gave you my birthday gift guide and my tips on stockpiling gifts so you’re always prepared for all those birthday parties your little ones get invited to. You never know when that mommy brain will kick in and god forbid you’ve forgotten to pick up a gift. I always try to stay 5 steps ahead of myself these days to avoid my forgetfulness! So along with being gift ready, you’ll need to get your wrapping supply game going too.
I love using postal wrapping paper because it’s gender neutral. I use kitchen twine as my ribbon and then the fun starts. I call in my wrapping paper decorator, Mabel Ray. I have a great selection of birthday/celebration stamps like this and these with all different color ink pads for her to use and go crazy with. I like having Mabel involved in the decorating process of the wrapping paper as I feel it’s teaching her the art of giving. She decorates the wrapping paper for her friend and feels proud to present the gift at the party. It’s a win win.

If you have a little more time on your hands to be very creative, I’ve started a Pinterest board on wrapping ideas that just might inspire you. But there are those times when you just don’t have that little extra time you need. Brown paper gift bags are a perfect addition to have with your supplies along with some colorful tissue paper for that pop of color. Instead of a card you can always use a gift tag and I Love these ones .
OK, so you’ve got your wrapping kit together and good on you cause I love a kit ! The key is keeping it all together and what better way than with a gift wrapping storage bag . It keeps it tidy and in order. With the see-through compartments you can see what you’re running low on and replenish as needed.
Just a little life hack to keep you ahead of the game. Who doesn’t like that?!
