How to Create the Perfect Wrapping Station


As you are wrapping gifts this holiday season are you dreaming of the perfect wrapping station? We hear you…nothing is more frustrating than rolls of paper on the floor, constantly losing the tape and scissors, and tags and trash everywhere. It’s such a hassle, not to mention the sore back! Take a look at these four ideas on how to create the perfect wrapping station. You’ll find by organizing your supplies chaotic holiday wrapping sessions will be a thing of Christmas past.

1. Key Elements
Make sure you start with great countertop space, lighting, and a place to keep all your wrapping supplies. Make a list of all the things you use and develop a plan to accommodate them. Do you like to stand up or sit down to wrap? This could impact the counter height. When it comes to cabinets, consider carrying the style of your kitchen cabinets through to your wrap station.

2. Colorful Accents
Sometimes your wrap accessories can serve as decor accents like our photo here. Use bins and containers that match your wrapping paper to create a uniform look. Easy storage hack? Use shower curtain rods to “hang” wrapping paper.

3. Clever Storage Solutions
Easy cleanup and staying organized is key to any functional wrap station. Use ideas such as a slatted wall, magnet board, and metal rods to help store scissors, tape, pens and ribbons.

4. Wrapping on the go
So what about those times you are running to the store, grabbing a quick gift on your way to the party, and wrapping in the car? A zip around three-ring binder can store tape, scissors, ribbons and gift bags…and easily fits in your trunk or under the seat.
