Find Gorgeous Holiday Wrapping Paper at These Local Spots

A primer to having the prettiest presents under the tree.

You have 37 people to shop for, holiday magic to orchestrate, and a full slate of pageants and parties to attend. The absolute last thing you have time for is wrapping that growing pile of presents taking up space in your closet—or fighting for the last roll of “Merry Grinchmas” paper at your local grocery store. Ease your stress with some of our favorite local gift-wrap sources that will help you transform ordinary packages into pièces de résistance. 


Now That’s a Wrap

  1. Assorted Wrapping Papers, (from $10/The Container Store)
  2. “Big Green Bow” Wrapping Paper, (from $11/Audi + Alf)
  3. “Holiday Thin Stripe” Wrapping Paper, (from $12/Joy Creative Shop) 
  4. “Poinsettia” and Assorted Gift Wrap, ($16 each/Gloster Road Co.)

The Container Store

For vastness of selection, it’s hard to beat this Dallas-based staple, which stocks a treasure trove of papers, boxes, ribbons, and creative accessories to make your presents presentable. Bonus: You’ll find Hanukkah-friendly options as well.

Audi + Alf

Featuring winter scenes, holiday greens, and more North Pole–approved patterns, the watercolored wrapping sheets created by Dallas-area sisters-in-law Audrey and Stephy Gustafson come in two handy sizes.

Joy Creative Shop

With apologies to Julie Andrews, it takes more than brown paper and string to make us swoon. Paper-goods doyenne Steph Weibring gets us. Her striped, squiggled, dotted, delightful, and vibrant holiday collection would’ve surely had Maria singing a different tune. 

Gloster Road Co.

Watercolor artist Lauren Jopling Smith’s holiday collection showcases more than 20 original strokes of genius on repeat—from classic nutcrackers to potted citrus trees. Her gift wrap, tags, and cards are a timeless way to show your holiday spirit.


Find a Package Deal

Instead, leave it to the experts at St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange. Their wrap stars will tape, tissue, tie, and tag any item, regardless of where you purchased it. Choose from 20 designs, and allow up to four days for turnaround. Their services come at a fee (prices start at $8), but you can feel good about dropping your dollars here—the volunteer-run store’s proceeds go toward local charitable efforts.
