While I get a huge thrill out of buying colorful wrapping paper for .20 a roll a week after Christmas, I married someone whose idea of wrapping is using plain, brown recyclable paper, without lots of chemical containing ink on it. Oh, and then using yarn as ribbon...or hemp. But, as most of his ideas do over the long-term...the look has begun to grow on me. I still love colorful wrapping paper....but there is just something so simple and attractive about the "less is more" look. Here are a few gifts my husband actually got wrapped before Christmas Eve this year!
