The Holiday Parties Begin

As I mentioned on Monday, I'm in full holiday mode. Have been for a while, and obviously it's a time of year I enjoy — people tend to question my obsession with wrapping a little less! Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Chapters Indigo holiday preview event, and I thought I'd share two quick-hit wrapping ideas that it inspired.

Animal Hair Boxes from Chapters Indigo

As those of you who follow me on Twitter may already know, I love love love these Luxe boxes. Put your gift inside and tie a ribbon around the box, and you're done. At $30 for the small, it's not a cheap wrapping solution, but for that perfect person, the box becomes part of the gift.

Antler Bottle Opener at Chapters Indigo

Also spotted: this supercool antler-shaped bottle opener. Imagine it as a chic gift topper for a six-pack or book all about beer. With a ribbon tied through it, the recipient wouldn't know until he untied the bow that it was functional and not just a neat decoration.
