Ceramic Red Reindeer MugSnowman Candy DishHoliday Greenery & Floral Wrapping Paper

I decided to get an early start on some of my holiday gift wrapping this year because I normally leave my Christmas shopping until the very last minute. I have been feeling really festive and inspired this year which made me want to get an early start on my holiday shopping. I choose this holiday gift wrap and gift tags from Hallmark because they have a beautiful understated look that doesn’t scream Christmas. The floral and greenery wrapping paper has a cute and whimsical illustrated quality to it which has been a huge trend in print and textile design this year.  I happened to find a large roll of twine and thought it would give the gifts a nice rustic look and to finish off the top I hand picked some holly and pine stems from my front yard. It was really stormy and cold out yesterday so I thought it would be the perfect day to sit by the fire and drink hot chocolate from my Red Reindeer Mug while I roasted marshmallows and wrapped my presents.
