Every year I search high and low for Christmas gift wrapping ideas. Then I hit the stores and search high and low for wrap and cards that fit in with the theme I've chosen. Sometimes, things don't always go according to plan, or I can't find the exact ones I want.

I've always said that the wrapping paper and card is more important than the gift itself.The reason for this, of course, is that the way a gift is presented can mean the difference between creating a true moment (filled with oohs and aahs and suspense), or just having it be fleeting second where packaging is ripped open and tossed aside as the recipient races to get to the supposed good stuff.

I wish I were super creative. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being down on myself; I can write, I get my craft and DIY on sometimes, and I can certainly style a room. But then there's the sort of super creativity that people like Rachel Kennedy have that just makes you think... woah, this gal is truly something.
