A wise man once told me I should create myself a gift wrapping tool box. Invest in an extra pair of scissors, tape dispenser and put them into a box with 2 choices of ribbon, gift tags and a pen.
Everytime you need to wrap a gift, bring the box out with your gift and wrapping paper. This saves you time collating all the different items from around the house – and how many times have you lost the scissors or tape to “somewhere in the kids room”.
I adapt this at Christmas time – to include my Christmas themed ribbon and tags.

Small confession! I last cleaned out my Christmas wrapping toolbox about 3 years ago… this is the before shot (of everything that I just tipped out of the basket).
