One of my favorite things about the holidays is the gift wrapping. I love being able to make the simplest gift look like it’s worth a million bucks.

My dad was the most awesome gift wrapper I have ever known. His edges were meticulously crisp and neat. I specifically remember him teaching me how to gift wrap. When I was a little girl he would wrap the presents and I would handle the bow. As I got older I set up a gift wrapping station and he would pay me a dollar for ever gift I wrapped.

Here are some favorites I found while strolling the world-wide web. I chose these because more than likely you already have what you need to completely wrap the present without having to purchase specialty items.
