favorite wrapping paper

 

Wrapping paper frustrates me sometimes. Actually … a lot of the time. You know when you’re cutting a big piece and you go to slide your scissors through the paper and then … snag. And … another snag. Ugh. Yes – sharper scissors help. I know. But I also have discovered that all wrapping paper is not created equally.

Today I’m sharing a wrapping paper that I can safely say is my absolute favorite. It’s probably been a couple years since I accidentally discovered it. I picked it up at Home Goods because it was cute. And then when I went to actually use it … dreamy.

The brand is Loft|213. I’m not really familiar with anything else they do. I just know I’m in love with their wrapping paper (no, this is not a sponsored post). I think they have material options like traditional paper and 100% recycled kraft paper … but I’m talking specifically about their “compostable limestone based paper.”

Say what? Wrapping paper made from stone instead of tree? I totally don’t get it, but it sounds awesome. And it FEELS awesome. And it CUTS awesome. Plus … hello, cute patterns.

I’m not sure how to explain how it cuts so beautifully, but you can’t tear this stuff very easily. It doesn’t snag. It cuts just as easily as putting a butter knife through … well, softened butter!

It’s a beautiful thing, my friends. I love to give gifts, but the very specific component of cutting wrapping paper was a frustration for years. And now I know which paper doesn’t give me those hassles. I’m such a fan and that’s why I wanted to share it with you today.

I wish I knew where else to tell you that you can find this besides Home Goods. I’m not seeing much information on their site. Certainly, if anyone knows more or has tips on where else to find this fantastic wrapping paper, chime in with your comments.

  7. Yes! I have a roll of this paper in navy+white chevron, and I LOVE IT! It is by far the nicest wrapping paper I’ve ever used. It almost felt like vinyl when I was cutting it, but I know it’s not. I got mine at Home Goods too.

    How about some gift giving suggestions for people like me who would love to give but seldom know what to buy.

  12. Kirsten J says:

    Ok – yay! We just got a Home Goods. I needed another excuse to go :)

  13. Amorette Gwynn says:

    looks like they don’t have a lot of choices to buy, per their FB page, “You can find our products at some of our retailers: TJX, HomeGoods, Marshall’s, Tai Pan Trading Co., and Christmas Tree Shops. All of them carry our Kraft and StoneWrap. We are working on getting more retailers set up soon!”

  14. Marna says:

  15. The next time I go to Home Goods I will check it out. I do like the the Sea Foam and white paper that you picked up. It’s very pretty. :)

    Oh, now you’re talking my language! I always buy thicker wrapping paper because I don’t like the tearing of the paper! I get that. Wish we had a home goods store near me! I’m not even sure we have one in Maine!

  21. Luanna R says:

    Wrapping paper is a pet peeve of mine!! It has to be thick or I give it away! When you have a family with lots of kids, you do not want thin wrapping paper around the holidays. LOL Thanks for sharing Becky, I feel a shopping trip coming on ;)

  22. Michele says:

    I found a few rolls at Tuesday Morning. Not a lot, but maybe other locations have more.

  23. Latrice says:

    I have all those!! Love those wrapping papers from home goods. I just had to run over and check mine out to see if they were stone as well and YUP!! Great stuff.

  24. HELEN says:

    We bought this at Winners (TJMaxx version in Canada). My son and I just find this so ‘dreamy’ soft and easy to cut. I am sure paper cuts will be the least of my concern here. I highly recommend this for us who enjoy using beautifully printed gift wrapping materials.

  25. Lisa says:

    This is the best wrapping paper I have ever used! It cuts like a dream and wraps so easily… I am going to buy more of it. I found mine at Home Goods and it was on clearance, which made me like it even more! If you ever see any for sale, pick some up…you will be glad you did.

  26. Tracey D says:

    The Container Store has its own line of stone paper. I bought the yellow Casablanca pattern there and found the same paper in blue at Homegoods by Loft 213.
