The holidays are approaching fast and with them comes wrapping gifts. To help your home or office stay organized, we’ve come up with a few storage solutions for wrapping paper.
Jennifer Reich, coauthor of The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year, gives us her advice on storing supplies and wrapping paper. We’ve chosen to highlight our three favorite solutions and listed all about them below.
Wrapping Paper Storage Ideas
Over the door storage solutions are a great option for smaller spaces. This is particularly useful if you want to keep that wrapping paper handy– say for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions, because you won’t notice it’s even there.
This particular product holds up to 12 rolls of wrapping paper and allows you to attach another bag on the bottom for additional storage.
If you want to have your wrapping paper handy but don’t necessarily want to have it out in the open, and under the bed box could be perfect for you.
These plastic boxes are great because they keep the dirt and other yuckies out of your things and because they’re clear, you can see what’s inside.
“I also have kept wrapping paper rolls in an underbed box when I lived in an apartment with limited storage. I keep all of the supplies together: paper, ribbon, scissors, tape, etc. to make a gift wrapping station!” says Reich.
One thing to keep in mind is that with these, you can only store wrapping paper rolls that are no more than 30 inches long.
Lastly, this handy storage bag is made exclusively for wrapping paper and can be kept anywhere because it has a zipper that keeps your paper in great condition until the next time you need it. The product has a clear top so you can see the contents and can hold several rolls inside.
Reich says that if you can’t purchase a solution like the ones we listed above, there’s no need to worry. She has been able to use something she already had in her home for this purpose.
“I store my wrapping paper upright in an old, tall laundry basket (or even kitchen trash container). It keeps them neat and easy to see,” shares Reich.
So remember to get creative and think outside the box. Anything can turn into an awesome place to keep your valued supplies if you use a little imagination.
