Now is the perfect time of year for a fun Girls' Night In! The weather may be dreary or cold, but the Christmas lights are cheery so it's the perfect time to invite girlfriends over for a fun night of wrapping gifts!
Now is the time of year that everyone has some wrapping to do and why not invite a few friends over to share in the fun.
It doesn't take a lot to create this fun night. Ask each person to bring a couple rolls of wrapping paper or ribbon/embellishments. You supply the tape and scissors and refreshments. Or, ask everyone to bring one roll of wrapping paper and a snack.
With everyone bringing wrapping paper, you're guaranteed an assortment of festive papers under the tree. Encourage others to bring inexpensive embellishments from the dollar store to share.
Then when guests arrive, turn on some holiday music or a Lifetime/Hallmark holiday movie as your background and enjoy the evening with friends while marking something off your holiday to do list.
Need suggestions on embellishments or unique wrapping tips? Follow my Pinterest board called "creative wrapping" where you'll see tips like how to turn those wrapping paper scraps into bows like this:
