Stress-Free Gift Wrap Organization

Our Brand Ambassadors share their favorite products for keeping their gift wrap supplies in order

by Brad

The holidays are here! Rather than spend the next few weeks in a cluttered landscape of gift wrap rolls and ribbons, we recommend creating an efficient gift wrap organization system. This system can vary depending on your available space and how much gift wrapping you actually do, so we asked some of our Brand Ambassadors to weigh in on their favorite ways to keep everything in order.

"I personally love to wrap presents, but only if everything is together and ready," says Christy Little of Our Southern Home. For gift wrap rolls, she uses the Vertical Gift Wrap Organizer, which easily holds up to 16 rolls of 30" large-core gift wrap. This allows her to keep all of her gift wrap near her preferred gift wrapping space--the dining room table--without having to scramble to find everything.

For smaller items such as gift tags and tape, Christy uses a combination of a Small Mocha Water Hyacinth Storage Bin and a Medium Home Edit Organizer Bin with a removable divider. "I've had my eye on this basket style for a while now and it does not disappoint," she says. "The divider insert turns it into the ultimate organizer for gift tags and tape."

Marie Luciano of Blossoming Interiors uses our Grey Wrap & Tote Organizer to store her holiday gift packaging items. "When I saw The Container Store had a gift wrapping storage tote, I had to snatch it up like I was a kid at a candy store," she writes on her blog. "I can easily fit all of our wrapping paper, gift bags and tissue paper into one spot instead of having it all lost in the great abyss storage closet under the stairs."

Bethany Crisp of Crisp Collective is also a big fan of the "budget-friendly" Grey Wrap & Tote Organizer, saying that it "holds up to 24 rolls and has pockets for tape, bags, tissue paper and everything you need!" She also loves the organizer's slim profile: "The best part is it easily slides under a bed or into a closet when you are done, or it can be folded flat when empty!"

Lisa Trigsted of Neat Freak McKinney favors using the Elfa Door & Wall Rack for her gift wrapping supplies. Her customized system allows her to create specific zones for her rolls of gift wrap, tape, tags, tools and other items. "It makes the holidays less stressful when all my gift wrap, gift bags, ribbon and accessories are all in one place," she says. "My family loves it too. Everyone knows that everything they need is right here and super handy! They can grab what they want and wrap gifts on my office work table."

"The Elfa Door & Wall Rack is so easy to install too," Lisa adds. "It took me all of ten minutes, and I did it alone!"
