There is something about wrapping gifts that I just love. Matching paper, ribbons and make a card to go with it is just so much fun. Once I have picked wrapping paper, I make a card and just try to match the colors or style.
And, sometimes I just like the colors of the gift itself SO much that I just don't want to 'hide' it. I have found that, in that case, I really like to use clear wrapping paper (cello wrap).
For bigger gift it's sometimes easier to use clear gift basket bags.
