Portable Gift Wrap Organizer
I bought the Portable Gift Wrap Organizer to replace a vertical Rubber Maid organizer. It unzips and lays flat, allowing you to see and access all your rolls of wrap. Unfortunately the velcro straps don't do a very good job of corralling the paper rolls, so they all move around inside, unfurl and sometimes rip. There's no structure to the organizer to protect gift wrap or bows. You have to have a wide open space -- tabletop or floor -- to spread the organizer out. It doesn't accommodate larger rolls of gift wrap. All in all, a disappointing purchase.

not as good as advertised, poor quality
This is the third gift wrap organizer I've tried. The first was the hanging one. It was heavy and difficult to get out of the closet when fully loaded and awkward to put things in or to take them out while hanging. I then tried the vertical standing organizer which worked well but was bulky. I thought this was the perfect solution when I saw it, but was severely disappointed. It says it holds 24 rolls, but they must be referring to the smallest rolls on record because I could barely fit 12 smallish rolls in there. Also, the construction was poor so the zipper broke after only a few months of fairly minimal use. I've gone back to the vertical standing organizers. They may be bulky, but they're sturdy and hold plenty.

Great to consolidate all this!
I checked out all the different options for storing giftwrap but I wanted to be able to keep rolls of paper in the same place as tissue paper and bags and what I love about it being in a bag is that I can just bring it into the living room and wrap in front of the TV and very easily stow everything away again when I'm finished. It holds a lot. I didn't have too many rolls of wrap but I had a TON of giftbags in various sizes, ribbon and tissue. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

great for storing in a home of limited space
This is a good bag for wrapping needs where space inside can be limited. I say this because I am forced to store this bag outside, on our back porch. This is a durable bag that holds most my wrapping needs; it sustains in direct sunlight. I had a bag made of material that deteriorated from the sun's heat. I've had this bag for about 2 yrs, and its still going strong. One gripe is the zip up effect only allows protection for paper the size of the bag, thus leaving me to find a place for paper longer than the bag. The other downfall is its not a "hard" material. You will have to place where paper wont be bent.
