Angela Liguori of Studio Carta imports this unusual and lovely string-wrapped cotton thread from Italy.
In tight or loose weave, Studio Carta's Italian cotton ribbon is available in a myriad of colors.
This holiday season, try a little chartreuse instead of evergreen. It's a fresh twist on an old theme.
Made in collaboration with Angela Languori, Pikku's cotton ribbon comes with a wooden paddle that is hand-carved in Vermont.
Witty and cute, Anthropologie's pom-pom paper will put a smile on even the biggest Grinch's face.
Great for the holidays, or any time of year, Olive Manna's aged tags have a vintage appeal that's totally contemporary.
A little bling, especially these cheerful gold leaves, makes everyone happy.
This year I'm going with a little blue twine. It's so pretty with either gold or silver.
For DIY wrap, my favorite is good ol' kraft paper. A simple gold star or tree stamp makes yards of festive holiday paper.
Graceful berry and weed stamps from Tara Hogan of Ink + Wit are also great for DIY wrap and cards.
Mimicking frosted pine needles, Dream & Candies' silver cord adds a delicate touch.
A new favorite, Paper and Present (get it?) has several midcentury-inspired designs.
I often eschew gift tags in favor of simply writing "To" and "From" directly on the wrapping paper. Whether you do this or not, your note is most festive written in metallic gold and silver ink. I prefer a fine point.
Japanese washi tape is great for all your holiday craft ideas, including wrappings. Crisscross it or create a tree, star or other design. It's especially handy for presents that need to be shipped.
I love black swirls with gold. This adds just a hint of noir to the holidays.
