The Wednesday WHY?! (and Christmas wrapping)

Super sorry this is a day late! The holidays have been CRAZY! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I even got a white Christmas so I can’t complain!!!! 

So for the Wednesday WHY (on Thursday)…

**WHY when you spend ALL that time buying presents for kids (in my case a nephew) do they always want to play with the wrapping instead of the actual present? I think it’s quite hilarious. Z didn’t do this as much this year as he has in the past, but I have seen so many kids throw presents in the floor and play with the bag they came in, boxes they came in, or especially bows! I know I’m not the only one who has experienced this! 

And to add to my post thought, I found some awesome wrapping ideas on Pinterest. If the kids are gonna play with it, it might as well be worth their while (and yours!). I have convinced myself that next year I WILL learn to wrap cute! And it’s never too early to start planning for next year, right? Only 363 shopping days until Christmas ;)

~ONE: fabric wrapping! GREAT idea, because fabric is always adorable. And you can find it on sale a lot of times, so it would be good to stock up on cute patterns!

~TWO: fingerprint Christmas light wrap. UM CUTE?! This is perfect because it does not have to be perfect. And everyone loves a little homemade!

~THREE: initials on brown paper. If there’s one thing you’ll learn about me, it’s that I LOVE monogramming & initials! I actually printed some initials for some wrapping this year on white gift bags, but this is way better!

Now is a great time to stock up on wrapping supplies! Head out to your local Target or Wal-Mart and see what they have to offer! What are your favorite wrapping ideas?! I would LOVE to see pictures! 

And, tomorrow I’m going to share some gifts that I made for Christmas! Come back then!

    Hey girl! Ashley was just telling me you bought an ad with her and sent me your blog link so I stopped by and followed. I love this post! That giftwrap with the initials is adorable!

    Good luck in pharmacy school! I’m in nursing school, which I know is very different but they are both super hard so I understand a little bit of what you are going through!

    If you ever wanna talk blogging or vent about school or whatever feel free to email me! :)

    Rebekah, those are some lovely ideas for wrapping presents that I need to bookmark for next year. My son has always been about the present within but my nieces prefer to play with the ribbons and bows of the wrapping. Sillyness.
