Get Giving! Modern Gift Wrapping Ideas from Around the Web


Lately we’ve been pretty obsessed with two things: Pinterest (are you following CH+D yet?!) and holiday shopping. So it’s not particularly surprising that last night’s plan—trim tree, locate seasonal cookie recipies, finish writting holiday cards, make shopping list for upcoming cocktail party—unraveld into last night’s reality—purchase new sweater on Shopbop, spend four hours curled up with the laptop and a glass of wine scrolling through Pinterest.

But! We did come across some fabulous gift wrapping ideas, so we’d thought we’d share those today and attempt last night’s actual plan again tonight.
