Avoid the headache of having to sort through wrinkled, ripped wrap next Christmas. Keep your leftover wrap in good shape for next year by packing it away carefully now. Some tips:
- Buy a gift-wrap organizer that hangs in a closet or on the back of a door. These organizers usually hold a dozen or so rolls of wrap and have room for ribbons and bows, too. Cost: less than $20.
- Pick up a shallow, plastic storage container that’s long enough to hold rolls of wrapping paper but flat enough to slide under a bed. Get one with a lid that fits at least a dozen rolls of wrap. Cost: around $15.
- Invest in a gift-wrapping station. It looks like a desk, but comes with rods for hanging ribbon and rolls of wrap, drawers for storing tape and gift tags, and plenty of tabletop space for wrapping gifts and keeping scissors within reach.
