Here’s how to upgrade your gifting this holiday season with the best wrapping paper and gift supplies that can be sent straight to your front door.

Wrapping Paper

1. Beyonce Holiday Wrapping Paper

It’d be criminal to not get this for the Queen Bey fan in your life. Really, it’s the only thing worthy of the Lemonade vinyl you already bought them. And who knows, it could encourage them to act a little nicer than usual…

Why spring for a standard roll when you can have reversible wrapping paper instead? This black and gold paper can be mixed and matched (with festive prints like trees, reindeers, plaid or polka dots) so you spread all eight of these patterns across your family and friends.

6. Furoshiki Holiday Wrapping Cloth

We know you’ve thought about being more eco-friendly this holiday season. Luckily, the Japanese tradition of using a cloth (usually silk, cotton or rayon) to carry, gift and protect items is a great sustainable and reusable option for gift-giving.
