I can’t believe we are in the last 2 full weeks before Christmas. Where did December go?! Thankfully I am just about done with my Christmas shopping, and boy does that feel good!! I have so enjoyed this series that Kristen from Ella Claire has hosted, the farmhouse holiday decor series, it has been so much fun!

Today we are sharing our final post of the series, our Christmas Gift Wrap. Even though today is the last day of this series, we have already been chatting about continuing this series with more fun ideas.
The last time you saw this little office space we have in the on-suite of our master bedroom it looked like THIS. I’ve been working on a fresh makeover in this little room and I can’t wait to share more with you. I started by planking the walls with Stikwood. It’s peel and stick wood, and I chose their “Hamptons” style, for a light and beachy vibe, I cannot wait to show you more!
I used my favorite Schoolhouse Chalkboard in our curated collection, and wrote up the month of December on it to help me countdown the days until Christmas.
I always like to look for gift wrap that feels one-of-a-kind, and sweet embellishments that make my gifts that much more exciting to open! Who doesn’t?! When I create my tablescapes I always aim for each place setting to feel inviting and special to welcome each guest. I take the same philosophy when it comes to wrapping gifts.
I fell in love with THIS sweet neutral whimsical wrapping paper. The neutral design makes it feel wintry, even though it’s not over the top Christmas.
Minted also has a fabulous selection of ribbon. Maybe you know about it, maybe you don’t? If you didn’t consider this one of my favorite secrets!
I love this cement ribbon paired with their “holly & vines” gift wrap in navy. It adds the perfect masculine holiday touch, and I love the unexpected blue color. It feels a little bit formal and oh so fresh to me 🙂
Velvet was the one texture I added this year that was “new-to-me”. I incorporated some new velvet throw pillows in our holiday decor, and loved this velvet ribbon the moment I saw it. Minted has a variety of widths and colors, I chose the navy in 2/8″, and the Ecru in 1″.
We also chose one of Minted’s foil pressed designs for our Christmas cards this year. You can find our design HERE. I love their heavy card stock feel, my daughter snagged one right away and put it in a frame in her room, totally claiming that one “her own copy”!
The thing that made sending Christmas cards the easiest this year was taking advantage of Minted’s envelope addressing option. It’s free, and all your envelopes come already addressed, which makes actually getting those Christmas cards in the mail – done!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. Be sure to check out the other amazing posts in todays tour.
