If you’re like me, you’re already kind of dreading the annual, late night “OMG we have to wrap every one of these gifts after the kids get in bed” conversation on the 24th.

Or, if you’re like half the people in my Instagram feed, you’ve already wrapped everything spectacularly, photographed it for optimal jealousy-inducing, and moved onto making 87 personalized gingerbread people from scratch or whatever.

This post is for the former group.

Hope these posts help you make all your gifts look as special as the thoughts that went into them — as easily as possible.
