Have you ever waited until the day of a party to buy the gift -on the way to the party? Have you ever wrapped a gift in he parking lot of Target?, Wal Mart?, the mall? Wherever.
Do you ever remember to bring scissors and tape? Or did you have to buy ANOTHER pair of scissors or ANOTHER pack of tissue paper, or ANOTHER roll of scotch tape.
I wanted to share an idea with you that will save you time, money, and possibly reduce stress.
All you need is an inexpensive school supply container. The one above is just an old one from one of my kid's rooms from years before that they had to have for school. Most of the supplies you probably have already.Do not. I repeat, do not cram all of this in your console or glove compartment. It will end up being a burden instead of a blessing.
Suggestions for contents of Emergency Gift Wrapping Car Kit are:
- Small scissors
- Tissue paper in different colors
- Small gift bags
- Gift tags
- Small blank note cards
- Permanent marker
- Hole punch
- Curl ribbon or other ribbon
- Scotch tape
This little kit also comes in handy just having the scissors, pen, and tape inside for other times. Ever try to take a Barbie out of the packaging in the store parking lot while your daughter is waiting, without scissors?
