A Dining Room That Does Dual-Purpose

With a smart mix of containers, supplies and organizers, this neutral dining room is now a stylish place to get creative with gift wrap, bows and gift bags during the holiday season.

Rolling Wrapping Cart

Bundles of wrapping paper rolls can be tricky to transport from space to space. Keep them all nice and tidy inside of a rolling mesh laundry basket.

Rolling Shelving Racks

Depending on the size and shape of your dining table, creative tabletop space can be at a premium. Free up some of the surface space by adding a rolling shelving system to keep larger supplies, like gift bags, wide rolls of ribbon and burlap, neatly stored and in within arm's reach.

Mail Sorter

Use a mail sorter to keep your holiday cards upright and neatly stacked. Each time you're done wrapping a gift, the individualized cards will be ready.

Clear Containers

Make it easy to find different spools of ribbon by keeping them in clear containers. In addition to this being practical, it also allows the colors, textures and patterns of the ribbon to double as room decor.

Magazine Holder

Many flat-packed gift boxes are similar in size to magazines. Use upright magazine holders to keep gift boxes neatly stored and ready for assembly.

Mugs of Pens

Different cards and tags call for different pens, pencils and markers. Keep your writing supplies easily accessibly by placing them in holiday-inspired mugs.

Mesh Drawer Systems

Mesh drawer systems serve many purposes. They keep unopened Christmas cards at bay and neatly organized, and they also offer a space to store finer papers to avoid damage from other wrapping supplies.

Pro Scissors

Based on how many gifts you're wrapping, you may need to invest in good scissors to cut through paper, burlap and grosgrain like a pro. Consider purchasing heavy-duty scissors from a local crafting store and making them more decorative by choosing those in unique finishes.

Tape Dispenser

You'll be amazed at how much more efficiently you can get your taping done if you place the tape rolls into a dispenser. Choose styles in fun colors to add a seasonal touch.
