We’ve all been that person on the morning of a party running around and frantically digging through the closet, trying to find the wrapping and tissue paper. We always finally find it, but then we have to dig through our junk drawers and hope we still have some tape left.
Skip the worry and the running around, and invest in your new best friend: a wrap & tote organizer. Better known as gift wrap storage or wrapping paper storage.[content-egg-block template=custom/new_list_test]
What Is A Wrap & Tote Organizer?
It is precisely what it sounds like. Wrap and tote organizers are a single place you can keep everything you need to wrap gifts in one tote. There are different types of totes and they come in different styles, shapes, colors, and patterns.
Most of them will have a place for everything you need to wrap a gift including spots for:
- Tissue Paper
- Wrapping Paper
- Gift Bags
A good tote bag for wrapping essentials will have separate zipped pockets of some sort to keep things organized and give each item a proper home. This system allows you to get to wrapping items easily and efficiently.
Since all wrap & tote bags are not the same I have rounded up a list of the top 5 you should own now! Keep your closet under wrap and don’t let it continue to grow in clutter.
1 Premium Wrapping Paper Organizer
This was the first wrapping paper organizer I ever purchased! I was sick of the wrapping paper tubes falling down every time I opened my closet and I wasn’t even thinking of the extras that this tote would eventually provide me with.
This one comes in two colors green and red, which is perfect if you want to have separate totes for separate types of occasions; this one is ideal for Christmas wrapping.
Dimensions of this are 14” x 40” x 6” and can hold 18-24 rolls depending on the wrapping paper thickness.
It is made from Oxford fabric which provides enough sturdiness to keep things inside of it safe from elements if you want to store it in your basement or attic.
You can use the velcro divider in the middle to separate rolls if you typically use 36-inch rolls., or use the divider to make small boxes throughout the tote.
There are multiple straps inside the case you can put over the rolls to securely keep them in place. They are sort of like the straps you use in your suitcase when you go on vacation to keep your clothes in place.
Two clear pockets with zippers are located under the flap of the top tote which is great for storing things like tags. tissue paper, scissors, and tape.
The slim and compact design makes it ideal to store under your bed, which I do in the spare bedroom, or in any other storage space of your choosing.
Multiple outside handles are found all over the wrapping paper storage tote and this makes it easy for putting away and taking out.
2 Underbed Wrapping Paper and Bow Organizer
This tote is made to go underneath a bed or any tight and narrow spot.
The dimensions of this wrapping tote are 40.2″ x 14.2″ x 5.5″.
Holds 12 standard rolls of wrapping paper and there are additional compartments to store other items one would need for wrapping.
A large handle makes this easy to carry. Outside of the bag has a label spot so you can accurately write what is in the bag so you don’t have to open it.
The entire bag is lined with a dual zipper so that whatever you put inside of it stays inside of it.
3 Upright Wrap & Tote Organizer
This wrap and tote organizer one is meant to stay upright so that the wrapping paper rolls stay vertical instead of laying horizontal.
Dimensions of this measures in at 31.75″ x 13.25″ x 11.5″, 2.25″ pockets.
Unlike the other ones, this one has a lid that covers the rolls.
This organizer would be ideal to put in a closet. When not in use this folds down to be flat and can be stored in a number of places around your home.
It has white dividers that are placed in the bottom of the bin to keep the rolls separated.
4 Wrapping Paper Storage Box
This wrapping paper storage box is made from a harder plastic material which is great for those who stack storage in bins or any other container.
Dimensions of this box comes in at 33.94″L x 12.13″W x 6.31″H.
This box holds up to 30 rolls and comes with a separate divider for ribbon and another for scissors.
Since this is clear you can see instantly what wrapping paper you have without having to open it up and dig through it.
5 Double-Sided Hanging Gift Bag and Gift Wrap Organizer
This wrap tote is a hanging one, which works great on the back of the door or hanging from inside of a coat closet.
It comes with a built-in hanger that is sturdy and rotates so you can easily get from the front to the back, and vice versa.
The hanger is designed to fit any standard size closet rod or pole.
It can hold up to 35 pounds of gift wrapping and other supplies and has room for ten wrapping paper rolls.
It has multiple compartments so you can store things in easy to reach and see places.
When picking out a wrapping paper tote it is most important to think about where you are going to store it. This will be your best guide as to which one is best for you.
The next thing you will want to look at is how many rolls you will be stored at a time, and how many compartments you think you’ll actually use.
