Well done Isabel! Does it come in my size?
If you have had a chance to catch the trailer for the new Smurfs movie you may have spied some perfectly wrapped parcels in particularly familiar wraps!
One of my greatest joys in life is making paper flowers. (sad? …but true! ) Although I know I’m not alone…Our trend hunters tell us that Paper Flower Power is everywhere, I have even seen them popping up in table decor and bridal bouquets. I love discovering new ways to craft paper blooms and here is the latest recipe!
It is a beautiful day here in Boston… FINALLY!!!
The shrubs are bloomin’, the bees are buzzing and staying in here trapped at my desk under a pile of deadlines is unbearable. :0(
However our good friends over at Container Store blasted away my blues by sending out this gift wrap e-blast featuring some of the fabulous new designs from our 2014 Collection on sale now in their store just in time for all of springs big days!
(Ahem… little reminder… Mom’s Day Sunday May 12!)
Look how gorgeous these designs look all tied up and ready for gifting!
Perfectly matched for this glorious day!
Tnx! Container XOXO!
Arlington, MA is a charming little town just outside of Boston and it’s where I’ve called home for the last 2 years. It is my favorite place that I have lived so far – and I’ve moved around a bit (read: Navy brat). Arlington has clusters of charming little neighborhoods with beautiful homes – both quaint and grandiose, a surprisingly diverse dining scene (Turkish anyone? Or maybe Argentinean?), and a few very lovely gift shops. So lovely in fact, these two in particular carry The Gift Wrap Company merchandise! Almost-literally in my back yard, I can find some of our lovely wraps, bags, and containers!

What a gem this shop is! It’s pretty easy to find on Mass. Ave. I happen to pop in right before seeing a movie at the Capitol Theatre, right next door. I always find gifts for people here – whether I’m in the market or not! (And if I’m not, there’s nothing wrong with self-gifting, right?) When I was in there last, I made sure to snap a few photos of some Gift Wrap Company offerings. I always get a little giddy seeing our hard work on display.

This is a relatively new addition to Arlington, and as the name suggests: it’s located right in the Center. Some localites may be familiar with Davis Squared (in Davis Square, Somerville obvi). Well, this is its sister-store and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a fun shop like this walking distance from my place. I especially like their card selection, kitchen accoutrements, and super fun socks. (Yes, socks!) Although it’s not gift wrap, I spotted some French Bull items last time I was there, so shout out to them as well!
Arlington is definitely worth an afternoon of exploring if you’re ever in the area! I’ve only scratched the surface here with a focus on gift wrap from these amazing retailers. Have you spotted any TGWC merch in your neighborhood??
What? Last minute invite to glitz & glam NYE party thrown by the Swankies and your LBD has seen every event you have gone to for the last 10 years….
Well time to get creative ladies! Our friends at Pierre Belvedere have provided a little inspiration for you. With a little ribbon and a hand full of bows (from TGWC of course) you can wow the crowd and get a few sneak peeks from Santa for yourself!
The new year is almost here and those in this biz know what that means.. SHOW TIME! If your heading out to check it all out please be sure to stop by and have a visit.
One of our friendly and helpful sales reps would love to give you a full tour of the 2013 line.
It’s worth the look. I promise!
So our cleaver friends at Container Store have done it again! First I receive an email so cleaverly titled “Contain your Cookies!” which made me chuckle because these days with all the sweets and treats coming in here I often ask my favorite jeans to do just the same!
I open this email only to find one of my favorite Gift Wrap Company goodie givers front and center! Yah Hoo!!!
Container Store always does such a great job selecting the perfect gift wrap and gifting accessories. You would be hard pressed not to find the perfect gift wrapping solution in one of their stores, not matter what the occasion!
Their Gift Wrap Wonderland is a must see every year, it gets those holiday jingle juices flowing and puts you in quite the festive mood. No humbuggin’ allowed in their aisles!
….time to get heavy on the good cheer, Christmas is almost here!
