Take your gift wrapping to the next level

A gift worth giving is a gift worth wrapping. 

Founder of the party blog, A Lovely Design, Misha Perritt has the top gift wrap trends for this holiday season - including color schemes, techniques, and more!

Misha says a wrapping party with friends is a great way to get your packages wrapped and nosh on some delicious party food and drink.

Misha recommends using simple wraps like kraft paper and black chalk paper and embellishing them with ribbons and tags.

One way to embellish your gifts is to use greenery to form wreaths or tie on a sprig.
