Every holiday season, I vow that this will be the year I put as much effort into wrapping gifts as I do picking them out. And, yet, inevitably I always find myself stuffing tissue paper into a cheesy Christmas gift bag from the corner drugstore. But after recently stumbling across Brooklyn-based Knot & Bow's Etsy site, I think it's safe to say this will be the year I finally get my gift-wrapping act together. Their Gifting Kits ($22), which come in "classic" (season-neutral red, white, and blue) and "metallics" (festive gold, silver, glitter twine, and sequins) include ribbon, twine, tags, clothespins, tissue paper, glassine bags, graph cards, and plenty of stickers—everything you need to make a gift aesthetically pleasing. Knot & Bow's parcel gift tags, glassine bags, kraft paper stickers, twine and other crafty goodness would be excellent for making DIY wedding favor packages too.
