We have such busy lives it can be difficult to find time to wrap a gift properly. That’s why I think that decorative Christmas boxes with lids are pure genius. I can make a gift look beautiful without putting forth the effort to wrap it. Brilliant.
So, each year, I review my stock of decorative boxes. I try to have some on hand in an assortment of sizes just in case I need to wrap something at the last minute. Otherwise, I just buy them as I need them.
As you can see, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can also buy them in sets. Usually, I buy one set each year and then purchase them as needed. They are so festive and easy to use that it makes me wonder why I bother even wrapping in the first place.
I do have a confession though. Sometimes, I use these boxes and then wrap on top of it. Sometimes the box is so pretty I feel it is part of the gift. Or, I just think that it is fun to unwrap a layer of paper to reveal something else that looks just as fun. It makes the present feel extra special. Listed below are some of my favorite styles.
By the way, they also make great decorations especially if they are made of sturdier materials.
