how to be wrap star...

Oh Joy | Use mini-LED lights to wrap a gift!

My favorite thing about giving gifts is wrapping them. I don't know why, but I've always loved figuring out fun ways to adorn a gift other than with the usual bow. For example, I got these mini-LED lights to wrap around this gift. Nothing's more festive then a lit-up, glowing package, right?

Oh Joy | use a stretchy headband & ornament to decorate a wrapped gift

I also love using materials that can be used again...either for wrapping another gift or for something else altogether. For example, these stretchy headbands can be used to hold your wrap job together for a colorful, clean, no-tape option. Then just tie on a pretty ornament!

Oh Joy | use sculptural chip clips to top off a gift

Or top off a simple ribbon with something unexpected, like these animal chip clips. They add a sculptural quality to the present, and offer a little extra function for your recipient's everyday snacking.

Throughout this holiday season, I'll be sharing some of my favorite ideas for gift-giving and gift-wrapping over on this Pinterest board in collaboration with Target. Every day, I'll be pinning a new idea that I'm loving or that I've come up with, so I hope you'll follow along for some last-minute ideas and inspiration!

P.S. And a little bonus gift wrap DIY I created over at Refinery29 about how to use all those leftover scraps of wrapping paper!
