Bobo Wrap: The luxury alternative to wrapping paper

Sometimes, something comes into my inbox and I literally get so excited I jump out of my chair. This was one of those emails.

Are you the kind of person who finds wrapping gifts a tedious chore? You can never get them to look luxurious and gorgeous and pampery. No matter how valiant the effort, you end up with something that looks like a 5 year old was let loose on it. And you know - never mind the eco-hostility of most wrapping papers, which are made from non-sustainable paper, used once then thrown away. Bah!

So this. THIS. Made me weep for joy and immediately pull out my credit card. Check out Bobo Wrap. Bobo Wrap is a gorgeous, far superior alternative to boring old wrapping paper. Available in a wide range of colours and sizes, Bobo Wrap is designed to be easily used and re-used on a variety of gifts large and small. No more searching for scissors and scotch tape; no more destroying the pretty wrapping creation by ripping it apart. Simply take the appropriate Bobo Wrap, tie it artfully on your gift (it's beyond ridiculously easy) and voila - done. Ranging in price from $14 to $36 USD, you are certain to find an option perfect for every gift - and the best part is, the more you give, the more likely you will be to get one back.

Bobo Wraps are available on their website - they're also available in Canada at Paper Things in Toronto, The Papery in Toronto and Gem Entrepot - Quebec. Check them out!

These are gorgeous! I don't know how skilled I would be at tying it though.......

Hope there is a Canadian source!

Shiny Green Penny - it's *insanely* easy to tie them. I linked to a video in the post. It's seriously easier than using traditional wrapping paper!

Red - totally agreed!
