When an organizing colleague posted the photo of The Container Store’s Gift Wrapping Work Station on Facebook, it was love at first sight. I knew I had to have one.
The Gift Wrapping Work Station has two sturdy sides to it and it unfolds like a sandwich board. You can hang it up when not in use. Compared to the standard hanging gift wrap organizer, this one has more heft to it and won’t tear. The retail price is $49.00, and it is available at the stores or their website.
Why It’s Awesome: Everything you need – wrapping paper, gift bags, tags, bows, and tissue paper – is all contained into storage item. You can see what you have and what you don’t. This station has two large hooks that can hold a tube of wrapping paper at table level, and you can easily pull the paper out to wrap gifts.
Drawbacks: As with any organizing system, you have to keep your collection of gift wrapping paper, bags, and bows at healthy proportions. To hang it up, you will need a solid closet rod or hook because the station has some weight to it, and it will weigh even more once you fill it up.
