We love paper that doesn’t take holiday themes too literally. The red cardinals on this pattern (shown at rear) from Chicago-based stationer Snow & Graham are just wintery enough. ($6.50 for two sheets)
No time to hand-make a bow? This red tinsel pouf ($2) from Chicago company Paper Source is more fun than the traditional stick-on.
Tie off a box with this easy-to-bend red, white and green wired yarn--it won?t overshadow a stunning wrapping-paper print. ($13 a roll)
Ever wrapped a present and then forgotten what’s inside? (Oops, hope Grandma likes that One Direction tee meant for your niece.) Label each gift pronto with a festive name tag from local Etsy seller EverMore Paper Co. ($6 for a pack)
Use EverMore’s seasonal stickers to give a package a festive finishing touch.
($4 for two sheets)
To us, tying a perfect bow is an essential skill. (It’s right up there next to tying a stylish scarf.) Professional-grade ribbon is the only acceptable kind, and scissors must be sharpened at the start of each holiday season. (Head to this West Loop spot to get yours in cutting shape.)
The complimentary wrap jobs offered by department stores? Never gonna make it under this tree.
From the prettiest papers to properly awesome present toppers, we’ve stocked our at-home wrapping station with supplies special enough to make our gifts shine. See what we picked up this year.
