Simple Gift Wrap Station

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking at the things in my house and trying to figure out a better way to organize them. This time around it’s my gift wrap supplies. I hate having to dig around to find the things I need to wrap a gift! I decided I could easily make a better system by creating a gift wrap station.

If you’re like me, you have a ton of gift wrap supplies. I am just drawn to them. But all of that can start to add up and suddenly…

gift-wrapYou have a huge mess on your hands!

But it doesn’t have to be that way. A gift wrap station can help you keep all of these supplies in neat order and keep everything within easy reach when you need it.

gift-wrap-station-toolsYou will need just a few supplies inexpensive to create a gift wrap station:

  • Box or bin to keep all of the supplies together
  • A couple of medium-sized open containers like these cute ice buckets (Old Time Pottery)
  • Sugar shaker(s)
  • Mason jar
  • Small bucket
  • Napkin holder
  • Mason jar daisy lid
  • Rubberbands

jarsPlace curling ribbon in the Mason jar and replace the lid with the daisy lid. Poke the end of the ribbon through the lid to easily pull it out and cut off what you need. The jar is large enough to hold at least 3 different ribbons which can each be laced through the daisy lid.

A roll of twine will fit perfectly in the sugar shaker. Poke the end of the twine through the sugar shaker hole for use.

gift-bag-storageA small plastic bucket is perfect for holding gift tags, pens, and scissors.

Place gift bags in the napkin holder. I like to keep an assortment of plain bags that can be used for any occasion.

Add bows to the other ice bucket.

gift-wrap-organizationAdd all of the containers to the big bin.

Start with the ice buckets since they are largest. Tuck tissue paper behind the buckets and against the back wall of the bin. In front of the ice buckets add the napkin holder full of gift bags. In the front of the bin add the tag bucket, twine, and curling ribbon.

Make a cute tag to hang on the front of your gift wrap station if you like.

So simple and so refreshingly organized!

Some tips:
Box up your excess gift wrap supplies and keep them out of the way. Refill the gift wrap station as needed. Keep the gift wrap station on a shelf within easy reach for when it’s needed.

This gift wrap station should be easy to keep maintained all year round!

That is such an awesome idea. I have lots of wrap utensils and many times I just feel like throwing them all away. But then I remember I can save money by keeping them. OMG! What an struggle... Storing them this way looks great and ends my mental battle. Thank you so much for sharing it.

What a great idea! I really need to organise my gift wrapping. It's all dumped in a box at the moment. Thanks for getting me motivated.

Hi Michele. This is nice. I love it when all of the wrapping products and supplies are in one spot. It is not fun to chase around for everything when you are already late for the party. I have a cabinet that I have mine in and it usually works nicely! Thanks.
