Holiday Gift Wrapping Station with Martha Stewart™ with Avery™ + $100 Staples gift card giveaway

With the holidays quickly approaching I decided to make life a bit easier and create a holiday gift wrapping station in my home office with the help of the Martha Stewart Home Office™ with Avery™ collection which Avery sent for me to try out. To say that I’m excited to utilize this station and the products in it is an understatement. Prepare yourselves, organization lovers.

My stenciled file cabinet was put to work, becoming the base of my station. I topped it with the Stack + Fit™ organizer. Isn’t it pretty? I used the Stack + Fit to organize my gift tags, holiday shipping tape, ribbon, scissors, pen, and holiday gift bags.

The Martha Stewart mitten and stocking shaped gift tags are the most adorable gift tags I’ve seen. They rank up there with puppies in the adorableness department.

I used the back part of the Stack + Fit to organize my gift bags and a red and white striped padded shipping envelope.

Have you seen the festive Holiday Shipping products Martha has come out with? They’re available in-store at Staples. Definitely more cheerful than slapping someone’s gift in one of those boring, yellowish brown, padded envelopes. And check out the awesome holiday-themed shipping tape.

Instead of throwing all my coupons in my purse, I decided to organize them in this Shagreen Accordion File. When I go Christmas gift shopping I’ll throw the file in my car, and when I arrive at the store, I’ll grab the coupons I need. I’m sure this method will be ten times more stress-free then spending five minutes digging through my purse.

I hung this Shagreen Pocket, which comes with thumbtacks (thank you, Martha) above the file cabinet. I filled the pocket with address labels in a Corner Lock™ High Capacity Document Sleeve and addresses and return address stickers in another Document Sleeve. This area will definitely come in handy when it’s time to send out Christmas cards.

I used a large galvanized container to hold my rolls of gift wrapping paper. Care to guess my favorite paper? Hint: mittens.

I used some boxes I already had to organize my gift bows and tissue paper. I used these great Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery Chalkboard Labels to mark the boxes. The Chalkboard Labels are such a great idea because when the holidays are over and I put the holiday stuff back in our attic, I can erase the labels and use the boxes to store something else. The labels are also removable, an added bonus.

And there you have it.

Bring on the holidays. This chick is organized and ready.

    I’ve been looking at Pintrest for a cute, festive, sophisticated and clean way to wrap my gifts this year. I usually just buy some crappy wrapping paper and slap a tag on it but this year I really want to step it up. Man, would this $100 gift card be out to work!

  2. says

    I’d love to buy the stackable organizers and other desktop organizers to help complete our command center!!

    I love her collection! Everytime I go to Staples, it’s the first area I visit :) A lot of times there are 50% off coupons on her “Tip of the Day” emails. The coupon is usually at the bottom of the email.

  3. says

    I keep desperately wishing there were a Staples closer to me. I think there is and then realize it’s Office Max or something else not Staples and it keeps making me sad. I love pretty much all organization. I keep thinking the perfect storage solution would keep my office at home from being a disaster. So, I would love anything that would help me tackle that mess. It’s embarrassing really.

  4. says

    I could definitely use some of those file folders, and I think the organizational binders are pretty neat, too. I love your gift wrapping station!

  5. Suzanna says

    This is a beautiful and convenient set up! I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet, but a gift card to Staples would help me get set up with a wrapping station! And with all of the birthdays in my family, that wrapping station could be used year-round.

  6. Lisa Rohrbaugh says

    Oh my, I love your Christmas wrapping station. Red is my favorite color and I Love the way you incorporated red in your items. Any chance you could tell me where you got the wrapping paper, especially your favorite, the mittens. I just love the Martha Stewart line and am anxious to try it.

  7. Amanda Thompson says

    I would pick a bunch of the Stack & Fit Magazine Files to help me organize all my cooking magazines that are floating around my house! :)

  8. says

    I love the gift tags and wrapping paper–too cute! I also love the cute shipping packages and tape, which is perfect since half of my family lives out of state, so their gifts get shipped.

  9. Mary says

    I love the Shagreen Accordian file for coupons. I usually keep them paper clipped together by store in a folder, it works, but not quit as organized as I want it to be. This system would be great and I could continue to use it throughout the year, bonus! And the holiday tags are absolutely adorable.

  10. Sally says

    Cute! I used some of the Martha Stewart supplies when I was wedding-planning earlier this year. The silver bookplates and silver sticker-labels are my faves; I’d love to grab that shagreen pocket you used for your coupons too.

  11. says

    Wrapping gifts is a real fiasco in my house… sitting in a pile of paper and bows while the dog and boy string ribbon and tape around…. Suffice it to say I would benefit from ANY organization help!

  12. says

    Ooooh this is fantastic! I would love to have an organized wrapping station, and not just for Christmas! Right now I have everything shoved into a Rubbermaid tote underneath my bed, but it would be so much handier to have it out/displayed somewhere. I love all the of the items, but I think the Stack & Fit takes first-place for me. There are so many things I could organize with one of those :) Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

  13. Katie says

    First of all – great job with the wrapping station! What I wouldn’t give for some organization like that. My home office currently looks like a tornado blew through it. I think my favorite item here is the Stack N Fit organizer. I could use about 10 of them!

  14. Nicole H. says

    I’ve bought lots of the labels, different size/pocket sheet protectors, but just thought of place I could really use an adhesive pocket!

  15. Aloha Reynolds says

    I have always wanted to put a gift wrapping station at my house! This is such a GREAT way to do it! :-) such great products Martha has! :-)

  16. Lakeisha says

    What an adorably, cute and crafty wrapping station! I would love to get the Martha Stewart stackable organizers or actually just about any thing from this line. Love Martha and love reading your blog:)

  17. Maggie says

    I already have so many of the Martha Stewart Products but I would love to add the holiday tape as well as hanging file folders to my collections!!

  18. Erika says

    I would definitely buy some chalkboard labels and some of the desk organization tools . I’m definitely in need of some organization in my life–thanks!

  19. says

    I love the Shagreen Pocket that you hung on the wall to prep for Christmas card writing! I would definitely start by buying that pocket and other labels and tape and accessories that you posted.

  20. AmyMpls says

    So happy to see that Martha is doing home office supplies. Such fun stuff. I love the stack and sort boxes. LOVE THE BLUE!

    Thanks for the chance.

  21. Carly McCarthy says

    I love the kraft labels! I bake most of my holiday gifts, and these are perfect! I’m also in crazy need of boxes and trays for the desk. My partner and I share it and because we’re both in school, it gets messy very very quickly!

  22. Megan @ The Pink Flour says

    I love the Chalkboard labels…how cute (and functional!) I love your stenciled filing cabinet btw….what a great idea!

  23. Cindy says

    I love the smaller binder for a holiday planner. And the metal bookplates. And the holiday packing tape is too cute. I would go crazy with a gift card! Thanks for the chance to win.

  24. Margaret says

    Love the stack and fit and the chalkboard labels. Just putting together my craft room so it would be wonderful to win. Thanks for the opportunity!

  25. says

    Wow – Chelsea – your wrapping station is so gorgeous! Of course I just love your stencilled file cabinet, but I also adore the shagreen accordian file folder. The texture of it is so pretty and the color is stunning in the aqua blue. You really are organized and ready to wrap!

  26. Katie says

    I would love to win! I love the chalkboard labels, well, I love it all actually! It would all get used to get the house organized.

  27. Jess says

    I love the chalkboard labels! I’m thinking of cutting them down to smaller sizes to use as the tags on our packages this year!

  28. Abby says

    Your awesome gift wrapping station makes me feel like a slack. I really need to get on the Christmas shopping/crafting bandwagon soon. Eek!

  29. Alison C says

    I love the Shagreen Pocket with pushpins. I wish I could get them all. We need some serious organizing here. My place is too small for all of us!!!! Organizing with these great supplies would really help!

  30. Jennifer S says

    I love her small expandable files. I use them for coupons and just tuck it in my purse when I’m ready to hit the stores.

  31. Nanette says

    I think I might get all the binders and pocket folders I could afford and organize all my stuff (in a very pretty way)!

  32. Lindsey says

    Those chalkboard labels are calling my name. Those would be perfect for quite a few projects that I have going right now.

  33. Ginny says

    I love those decorated mailers!!! That would be so great to send gifts to family far away. I also am in love with the stack n fit in that aqua color, sigh…

  34. Jess says

    What would I love to have? I think a better question would be, “what WOULDN’T I love to have?!” I love all the Martha Stewart products!

  35. Michelle says

    I am loving the Stack+Fit™ Shagreen Small Item Holders; you can never have enough places to store all the small miscellaneous things!

  36. sy says

    The chalkboard labels are so cute, I can use it to label all the document and receipt containers. I love the hanging folder, looks great and gives me more space. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  37. Tricia C says

    I LOVE everything about this giveaway!!!!! What wouldn’t I buy with this gift card? LOL! Anything to get my home more organized is the best gift!!

  38. Karen says

    I could totally use some new Martha products for the office, I am in a big over haul with my life and this would be a great start!

  39. Maika Llorens says

    I love this posting! It has inspired me to redo my office/guest room. I especially love the Stack + Fit and it’s definitely on my Santa’s list (hopefully I’ve been good enough this year! 😉
    The Stack and Fit not only it’s so convenient but the colors are fabulous and match perfectly my new office theme (dark salmon in the wall with white and black furniture, and aqua accents). I also love the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery. The other day, I used this avery collection to gift a friend return addresses for her new home. They came out really good (and so simple to make) and she was very happy. Now it’s my turn to make it for my new home. Thanks for your great ideas!

  40. Kimberly P says

    I would buy some decorative filing items or stack + fit desk accessories. Love how organized and attractive her stuff is!

  41. Betty C says

    I’m rather disappointed that the contest ended early. The official BlogHer rules say it doesn’t end until 5 pm Pacific time. It’s only 10:30 am.

  42. Betty says

    I’m going to go ahead a comment even though Rafflecopter shows the contest is over.
    I am not ready for the holidays at all. Every year I seem to be less organized. I think my New Year’s resolution this year will deal with organization.

  43. says

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.

    However imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and videos, this website could certainly be
    one of the very best in its field. Very good blog!
