Gift wrapping has always fascinated me. Maybe it started because of Christmas presents opened on Christmas day as a child. That feeling of excitement and glee that would stir inside me on Christmas Eve knowing that the next day I'd be tearing through that gift wrap (^•^) under the tree.
I'm one to admire gift wrap and packaging like art and consider the pretty wrapping a gift itself. When I come across books on wrapping, and there aren't so many here in the US, I have to have it. I recently added these books in the following photos to my gift wrapping library. I really have a thing for the ones from Japan.
I found my gift wrapping books at our local Japanese bookstore: Hakubundo, and online via Etsy and Ebay. Some search words to use: zakka, Japanese craft book, Japanese zakka book, gift wrapping (to give you a few examples).
