4 Ways to Organize Your Gift Wrapping

Turn an unused corner at home into your very own gift wrapping station

Shares

Wrapping gifts can be therapeutic. It's such a fun activity that many of us were able to craft different shapes and turn pretty papers into works of art. This holiday season, where do you usally wrap and prep your presents? We're guessing that a corner of your bedroom is littered with ribbons, cards, and paper! Some of you might even work in the living or dining area.

If you have an empty corner at home, you may want to turn it into a wrapping station where you can work on your gifts while listening to your favorite tunes. Since you have this special corner, you can keep your paper, scissors, and other essentials organized and in place too! Here are four pretty spaces that you can use as pegs:

Transforming table

Even in a small space, you can have a functional area where you can work efficiently. A table that can easily be folded is your best bet. If this is not available, you can always work with a small table that you can fold and keep in a corner once you're done.

Keep all of your essentials in clear plastic bins so you can just grab everything you need in a snap.

Maximize the available vertical space

If you still haven't maximized the empty walls at home, it's not too late to make use of vertical space and turn it into storage spots. Choose organizers that you can hang on one wall. Use it to organize wrapping papers, ribbons, small cards, and even your paper bags! See if there are baskets that you can hang as well to accommodate your tape, scissors, and other essentials.

Use a pegboard

Another way to maximize the available vertical space would be to install a pegboard in your room or workspace. This allows you to hang and display all the things that you need—making it easier for you to look for what you need while turning your essentials into instant decor pieces.

Utilize your drawers

A drawer gives you more space where you can keep your gift wrapping paraphernalia. Since we don't want crumpled wrappers, you can use it to group your paper must-haves together—as seen in the photo. Fold each neatly and make sure that you can get what you need without damaging the other pieces.

Since you will be wrapping gifts for different events and occasions, you can group wrappers for birthdays, weddings, and the holidays together for a more organized drawer.
