Creating a Gift Wrapping Station

I created a gift wrapping station in our guest room. I went through my wrapping supplies and divided them up into tissue paper, gift wrap, gift bags, ribbons and gift tags. Each are in separate containers.


We have a desk in the room and it has become the wrapping surface. In the desk drawer are scissors and tape. 

The room allows privacy when people are wrapping for others in the house. And it keeps the mess in one location.

Even if you don't have an extra room, you could designate an area for wrapping. You could repurpose a game table or set up a card table for the wrapping surface and keep your supplies nearby. If you can locate the area in a less-used area, you won't have to move it around. And it won't be an eyesore.
