So, what's an anti-horder to do? Buy one large roll of craft paper and use it for EVERYTHING! I personally love a simple brown paper package (perhaps tied up in strings?), but for a little extra holiday pizzazz, a few simple items do the trick.
I tapped into my rubbermaids of crafty goodness and pulled out some ribbon, yarn, twine, and a leftover wooden ornament from last year (25 cents at Michael's after last Christmas!)
You could also use springs of evergreen for a simple, natural approach.
What I love most is that, with the exception of the holiday ornament, this wrapping could be used for a birthday, shower, wedding, bar mitzvah, house warming... you get the picture. One of my all time favorite accoutrements is sprigs of thyme or rosemary - looks so Pottery Barn-esque and smells delicious.
