If you love wrapping gifts for any occasion, then you probably already know that finding a good storage place for your gift wrap, bags, and all that ribbon can be a challenge. Wrapping paper is beautiful, but the rolls of paper take up a lot of space, which is why these ideas and hacks for storing gift wrap, wrapping paper, and gift bags will make your life easier (or at least make your home a bit more organized).
