that's a wrap


Christmas time is my favorite time of the year! No complaints about drinking hot chocolate, bundling up in cozy sweaters, and spending time with family (not to mention, some time off work!) As I've mentioned in a few other posts, I love to give gifts too. It's always fun to pick out gifts for everyone in my family because I really try to find something that is unique to them! My sister-in-law, Alli, always has the best wrapped gifts, so this year I decided to step up my game.

A former San Francisco blogger (now in Portland), Jenna, opened up Sip Bite Go, an Etsy shop where she shares her love for wine and design. I just stocked up on wine-inspired Christmas art that I printed and decorated within approximately 5 minutes. It really made decorating easy this year, and as you know, I'm always on the go in the city, so time is precious! You can visit Sip Bite Go's Etsy store for the cute and easy Christmas gifts and gift labels that I used.

Thanks to SipBiteGo, I'm off to a good start on wrapping, but I'm looking forward to sitting down with my favorite mug filled with hot chocolate (or wine!) and wrapping the rest of the gifts I picked out for my family and friends this Christmas. I used the WINE+PINE gift wrap labels from Sip Bite Go's Etsy shop to decorate them. These labels make the finishing touches on wrapping Christmas gifts easy, because you can print them at home or work (if you're able to.) You can also use them to label bottles of wine to bring to Christmas events or as gifts for the party hosts! Check out this video from Jenna, wine-enthusiast and Etsy shop owner. It's part of her series of creative gift wrap ideas for Christmas. You'll see my attempt to follow the wrapping tutorial below too!

You can use some paint samples from a hardware store to cut out shapes with an ombre color scheme like I did above with the hearts, or just use some scrap paper!

These adorable holiday art prints make really cute and easy to put together gifts for the winos in your family or friend group! I purchased the frames at Home Goods and printed various items from Sip Bite Go's Etsy shop in the appropriate sizes! I'll be adding these as little extras to lots of my gifts this Christmas season (spoiler alert!)
