Beautiful gift wrapping requires a suitable surface for spreading paper. An island like this is ideal because it provides plenty of room for the gift, paper, ribbon and scissors.
If an island isn't an option, any empty counter will do. The laundry room is a great spot because the counters can be used for wrapping when they aren't being used for folding.
If you have some room for wrapping but can't commit to storing bags and paper for any occasion, get selective. Keep several rolls of natural kraft paper and a few rolls of shiny white, add the right bow for the occasion, and you're good to go. Natural kraft paper gift bags paired with tissue paper and tied with raffia are a good look for most gifts, simple and streamlined.
