It’s not just gifting season, it's wrapping-paper season. While brown-paper packages tied up with string are easy classics, a present that's artfully wrapped in festive patterns is pure holiday magic. This year, instead of buying the same tired designs at our local pharmacies, we'll be shopping online for only the freshest gift-wrap styles.
Whether you prefer a minimalist-chic look or want to dress your presents up with literal bells and whistles, there's an affordable and easily order-able roll for that. And, for anyone adopting a more eco-friendly approach to the holidays this year, we've unearthed everything from upcycled to reusable and even biodegradable alternatives to regular-old wrap as well. Another bonus of buying your wrapping paper online? You can bulk order it in bundles — meaning you won’t need to resort to any last-minute newspaper wrap jobs.
Ahead, discover the best wrapping-paper sites that will keep your gift workshop affordably stocked during the holiday season (and beyond).
