The Container Store’s Gift Wrap Wonderland

The Container Store Gift Wrap Wonderland

I love The Container Store for storage ideas, both big and small, but I would’ve never thought that they had such a great selection of modern, whimsical gift packaging options for the holidays (check out the Cool Yule and Celebrate in Style collections, in particular). A place where I can find both containers to store my flour and gift wrap to fill my paper cravings is pretty close to heaven in my book.

Shown above: The Cool Yule Collection and, clockwise from top left, Reindeer Gift Wrap, Snowflake Circles Gift Wrap, Whimsical Trees Gift Wrap, and Holiday Stockings Gift Wrap.

Kleenex’s New Oval

Kleenex Oval Tissues

I was wandering down the “paper” aisle in the grocery store the other day during my trip to buy turkey and all the trimmings. As I went for the paper towels, something on the other side of the aisle caught my eye. “Those can’t be Kleenex,” I thought. But, sure enough, Kleenex has a snazzy new line of tissues, boxed in a unique oval design with fresh, modern patterns. No need for tissue box covers with these babies. Who would want to cover them?

You can even download and print stationery with designs to match the tissue boxes!
