Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!!  The time between thanksgiving and the holidays is always such a whirlwind.  You always think you have enough time to buy presents, decorate, plan holiday parties but the holidays always sneak up way faster than expected.  For us we love, love, love the holidays – not only because its the season of giving but because its one of the few times all 3 of us sisters get together.  Its usually only 1 or 2 weeks that we have together, but its always a lot of fun.

Of course one of the highlights of our trip is seeing each other’s faces as we open each other’s Christmas presents.      Not only do we put a lot of thought into our presents for each other, but we put a lot of thought into our wrapping.  Think – Martha Stewart.  We wanted to share some great ideas with you to make your holiday presents extra special this year.  A little bling doesn’t hurt šŸ™‚

1) Brooches – these make great accent pieces and can be used instead of a shiny bow, plus your loved one can use it!  double bonus!
2) Rhinestones  – can be glued onto pine cones, on the center of poinsettias, and other Christmas decor you have laying around
3) Shiny wrapping paper makes a statement in itself.
4) Fabric – lace/velvet or any other textured fabric  – adds an unexpected yet beautiful element to your gift wrap.  Pair this with plain paper to really pop.
