Make a list, check it twice, then wrap a Western gift that’s real, real nice. These are our favorite rustic Christmas wrapping options this season.
“Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue,” croons Willie Nelson in“Pretty Paper,” the Christmas tune he wrote in 1963. “Wrap your presents to your darling from you. Pretty pencils to write I love you. Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue.”
Though I didn’t include any blue ribbons, the song’s chorus did inspire this roundup of assorted holiday wrappings. Each comes with its own seasonal flair, and all showcase elements of Western style.
