Christmas Gift Wrap Station & Hot Chocolate Bar

I usually spend hours hunched over on the floor wrapping gifts. Back ache and all;) I've always wanted a Cute Christmas gift wrap Station. This year I DID IT! I turned our living room dining table into a gift wrap station. We eat our family meals at our dining table in our family room. So we won't miss this table for 1 month.
Wow! Note to self...Iron that wrinkly table cloth!!

I used a red table cloth that I already had and went to work. I used small Christmas boxes I got last year on Clearance to hold items like my gift tags, and ribbon, tape, scissors, and pens.

I like to wrap my gifts with fun little surprises attached. Here is how I organized my bells and cookie cutters. I mean really...who wouldn't want a jingle bell or Christmas Cookie Cutter attached to their gift;)
I used a glass ceramic bowl I already had for the cookie cutters. The bells are in the bottom of a 2 tiered fruit holder I already had.

Here is a better look at the end of the table with tags, bells, more ribbons and cookie cutters.
I also bought pretty glitter snowflakes to tie to my packages this year.

This is the only thing I bought to organize my station.
This is a $5 trash can from Wal-Mart. It holds all gift boxes, gift bags, tissue paper, and can also hold rolls of wrapping paper. I love that I can stand to wrap gifts and all of my fun and functional items are at my fingertips. I am ready to WRAP!
Total Cost of Gift Wrap Station $5

Here is a 2nd look at our Hot Chocolate Bar.
Cocoa Packets, Chocolate Covered Cookie Sticks, and Marshmallows.
I'm still planning to add some candy canes and mint truffle hershey kisses.

Don't you just love this adorable snowman mug?
This hot cocoa bar was put together with things I already had in my home.
Total Cost: FREE

Now....what are you waiting for? Go make yourself a cup of cocoa and get to wrapping!

Stay Fashionable! Love, Candy


  1. I know where to go when I run out of tape. :) Looks like a fun place to wrap presents!

  2. Love it! I went and bought paper and boxes and bows and things at Hobby Lobby. I'm set! I get busy when the kids are at school. I try to use a different paper for each kid so they don't know who it's for until the day of! It's a lot of fun.
