No More Blue Amazon Bags: Where to Buy Gifts Wrapped in Paper

I have been searching for places to buy gifts online that actually gift wrap. Remember when department stores used to wrap gifts with shiny paper and festive frills and bows? Part of the thrill of Christmas for me has always been wrapping gifts and opening beautifully wrapped gifts. The blue Amazon bags are hideous. Department stores charge you $5 for a box. I discovered that Mark & Graham actually wrap your gift IN PAPER! Gifts come wrapped with their signature white paper gift wrap and are tied with an extra-wide grosgrain ribbon. It doesn’t have all the frilly bows and decor that stores used when I was a kid, but at least it has paper to rip open!

Here are a few of my favorite gifts on the site…

Never lose your Airpods again with this monogrammed leather airpod case. The chain strap can be hooked to the inside of your bag, $49. They also make monogrammed leather cases without the chain, $29.

That this sleek, gold bracelet is actually a charging device! It also comes in black for men. It can hold a full charge for 30 days and can increase your iPhone battery charge by 50% in just 40 minutes. On sale for $99

Build you own bag: Choose the silhouette, color, and straps then add your monogram.
