Urban Outfitters would have a cool DIY on how to do wrapping paper, because it's how they roll. Although, there's no way I'm going to have time to do it - but I do like the triangle one! The eyes one would creep me out, but make me laugh.

Anyways, this was my last weekend in Switzerland before I head home to the Midwest for the holidays on Friday - I spent it hanging out with some of my favorite ladies in luzern and having sleepovers. While I'm so excited to see everyone at home, I'm also sad - Switzerland during Christmas is magical with all of the markets, the hot spiced wine, and tucking away in bars with bad music for beers with friends... and Samichlaus running around town (too bad it's not like this hilarious music video which is in German but still a trip) < -- seriously I've watched this almost 20 times now and learned the dance ;)). I will miss it so much!

Happy Weekend!

Great that you got to be with friends before your trip back. I tell you, winter has struck hard in the heartland over the weekend. Whiteouts and below 0 winter chills.

dang girl, you're coming to the Midwest? Whereabouts? If you're anywhere near Milwaukee, bark twice! (Somewhat forced Anchorman reference? Anyone?)

I usually use a lot of old magazines to wrap things in. Or even tea towels.

Megan said...

I always plan to wrap my presents in some sort of ingenious way but usually resort to simple old christmas wrapping. Have a safe trip back home.

Ah, it'll be amazing to spend some time at home though, I think! But I can appreciate the magic of Switzerland. I'm actually going to Germany for a couple of days to go to some markets (and drink my weight in mulled wine). Am super excited!
