One of the most enjoyable aspects of our Holiday Shop is unveiling our fun new holiday gift wrap patterns. The Container Store's buying team works closely with our gift packaging manufacturers to create quality wrapping paper that's sure to delight both gift givers and recipients alike. Needless to say, they deliver beautiful and fun results year after year!

Check out a few of our favorites from this year's assortment...

Animal Friends

Practically everyone loves cute animals. (As for those few people who don't--they're not your real friends.) Our Animal Friends collection offers a whimsical assortment of cute animal-themed designs--including hip reindeer, lumberjack moose, and Christmas-sweater-clad bears and bunnies--that are sure to equally delight both children and adults!

Bold & Bright

If you're wrapping a present for someone with an affinity for the bold and bright, you've just hit the jackpot. Our Bold & Bright collection is just that--handsome, richly-colored wraps and gift bags full of gorgeous details. From our Jeweled Ruby Peacock Gift Bag to our Cabernet Glitter Speck Wrapping Paper, these are sure to make quite a statement under any tree.

Rifle Paper Co.

Another beautifully detailed option is our collection from Rifle Paper Co. Their classic-meets-modern patterns are inspired by both the natural (Pine Trees and Mistletoe) and the geometric (Festive Stripes) creating options with their own unique character.

Tropical Paradise

For those seeking sunnier climes this holiday season, our Tropical Paradise collection is sure to be a hit. Featuring flocks of festive flamingos, this assortment offers several quirky varieties of both gift wrap and gift bags.

Llamas & Cacti

If you just so happen to be gifting someone with our Llama Nightlight or Cactus Dryer Buddies, there's no better way to present them than our Llamas & Cacti gift packaging collection. The patterns feature llamas in sweaters, llamas in blankets, and cacti with garland, and they're perfect for fans of both camelids and cactoids.

Rainbows, Unicorns, and Mermaids

Should you happen to play Secret Santa for a leprechaun, sea captain, or brony, our Rainbows, Unicorns, and Mermaids collection should help make it a memorable experience. This assortment includes bright designs such as Festive Unicorns and Under the Sea Christmas, as well as more subdued patterns like Pearlized Pink and Pin Dot Foil.


Among this year's most elegant gift wrap patterns is our Safari collection of prints. Featuring both Wild Holiday Animals and Festive Leopards, these designs should put smiles on the faces of both the young and the young-at-heart.

Nutcrackers & Snowflakes

Our Nutcrackers & Snowflakes collection is a great choice for those seeking a more old-fashioned holiday gift wrap pattern. The beautiful designs in this collection include both whimsical and traditional takes on the nutcracker theme, and both are complemented by an assortment of handsome gift bags.

Santa's Getaway

Our Santa's Getaway assortment puts a fresh spin on an old favorite, putting reindeer on snowboards and even launching Santa into outer space! Kids are sure to love these cute designs.

Wine and Bottle Packaging

Finally, for those giving the precious gift of libations this season, our clever assortment of wine and bottle packaging will make your present even more fun. After all, who wouldn't love a six-pack holder modeled after Santa's pants, or a bottle cylinder emblazoned with "Jingle All The Way"? With our huge collection of designs, you're bound to find the perfect way to present your top-shelf Chianti (or re-gifted Chardonnay).
