When giving gifts to a family member or friend during the holidays or for someone just to say "happy birthday, "thank you," or "congratulations," we like to wrap the presents either with a decorative gift bag or pretty wrapping paper. In every wrapping gifts area, several things will make it a well-organized space to wrap presents. Below is the list of items you need to gather to make your wrapping gift station a successful area.

What to keep in your Wrapping Gift Station?
A Variety of Gift Bags
You should have all different sizes of gift bags. Medium size is most useful. But, having a few small and large ones are important too. Include a few of the wine bags if you tend to give wine bottles as gifts. Below are gift bags I found on Amazon.com (affiliate).
A Variation of Wrapping Paper Rolls
Do you like to wrap presents? If so, having a variety of wrapping paper works nicely in a wrapping gifts area. Pick different types of wrapping paper patterns. If you shop often for men, you may want wrapping paper colors that would match their personalities. If you shop more for women, you may want to buy some variety that is more like them. The trick is to get a few of each type so you never have to rush out and buy wrapping paper. Below are wrapping paper roll variety packs I found on Amazon (affiliate).
NOTE: Buying too large of a roll, you may keep it FOREVER. So, pick smaller rolls so you can use them for one or two people instead of years of presents.
A Variety of Ribbons in a lots of Colors
If you like to tie your bags or create beautiful bows, you will need the right type of ribbons. You can pick ones that are fabric or paper or plastic. And, you can also pick different patterns. The sky is the limit on what type of ribbon you want to buy. Below are ribbon variety packs I found on Amazon (affiliate).

Greeting Cards Organizer Section
Greeting cards usually accompany gifts. So, have a stash of greeting cards handy will help you do a quick wrap and gift creation.
To make these dividers, I used the Cricut Machine. Below are the projects that were used to cut and print these divider labels. Feel free to download them and check them out with your Cricut machine. These are FREE to download if you have the link below. =)
Greeting Cards Events Labels for Vinyl Cutting - This one is the vinyl lettering "Events A-I" and "Events J - Z" if you want to use them.
Greeting Card Dividers Cut with Labels Printing - They include the following event labels for reach event tab: Blank Cards, Baby, Birthday, Congrats, Get Well, Sympathy, Thank You, Thinking of You, and Wedding Anniversary.
And, don't forget to include the envelopes with the greeting cards. You can lay the envelope inside the greeting card so you can still see the cards when picking one to send to someone.

Include a tools area to hold small things you need to wrap presents.
Lastly, the tools area would be where you would store things like scissors, tape, tags, and tissue paper. This area can be separated or placed together in one bin. If there are other items you may use, you can place them in this area. Below are some tags I found on Amazon (affiliate).
If you do not want to make your own DIY wrapping gift area, you can buy wrapping gift organizers already divided for you and place them in a closet. Below are the organizers I found on Amazon (affiliate).
