Soon after the calendar page flips to December, my normally tidy home office turns into an organizational nightmare. During the holidays, this small space serves as both my storage area for gifts and my workspace for doing the actual wrapping, so it gets cluttered in a hurry!

And while I can’t do much about the piles of gifts, I could stand to do a lot more in terms of keeping my gift wrap supplies organized. And since clutter affects pretty much everyone, I thought I’d come up with practical solutions that can help us all stay more organized this month!

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing 10 different organizing solutions for gift wrap supplies. Whether you’re interested in storage boxes, hanging organizers, store-bought products, or DIY methods, you’re sure to the perfect solution for you somewhere in this list! :-)

10 Brilliant Ways To Organize Your Gift Wrap

1. Hanging Swivel Storage

If you have some space to spare in a coat closet or bedroom closet, this hanging swivel storage bin a great option! At just 11” by 10” wide and 33” tall, the main compartment of this narrow bin is an ideal size for wrapping paper tubes (and can fit up to 20 at once!)

This bin also rotates on its hanger to give you easy access to a number of nifty compartments and storage slots. They’re designed to hold your tissue paper, ribbon, bows, gift tags, and scissors so everything is right where you need it!

2. Hanging Gift Wrap Organizer

If you only have a few inches to spare on a closet rod, that’s more than enough for this hanging gift wrap organizer! It’s much more like a garment bag than a bulky bin, and features useful pockets for storing supplies.

It boasts a capacity of 8-10 rolls of wrapping paper, with various pockets for tissue paper, gift bags, and other supplies.

3. Wrapping Paper Storage Box

For a storage solution that fits under a bed or on a shelf, check out this wrapping paper storage box! It can accommodate about two dozen rolls of paper, so it’s great for those who like to keep a variety of options!

The main compartment features a velcro divider for customizability, and the cover has pockets for tissue paper and other flat-ish supplies. It also comes with a 5-year warranty, meaning it’s likely built to last!

6. Laundry Hamper

Another organizing solution you may already have at home is a compartmented laundry hamper. Their deep fabric bins can hold a lot of wrapping paper rolls!

The separate compartments are also handy for sorting wrapping paper by occasion. Use one bin for Christmas stuff, another for birthday-themed paper, and so on.

7. Over-The-Door Pocket Organizer

With a few simple modifications, you can even use an over-the-door pocket organizer to store gift wrap! Just cut open the bottoms of some of the upper pockets and slide your wrapping paper through them.

Use the remaining intact pockets to store smaller supplies, and hang it over any door in the house!

8. Tension Rod & Curtain Clips

Your gift wrap storage solution can even be as simple as a tension rod and few curtain clips! Just thread a few clips onto the tension rod, then hang it wherever you have room for it.

Use the clips to hold wrapping paper, tissue paper, and other supplies. Easy!

9. Plastic Bag Holder

Plastic bag dispensers like this one are surprisingly good for wrapping paper! Just make sure to hang it lower than you normally might to accommodate the length of the rolls.

You can even add a few simple S-hooks to the dispenser to store other gift wrapping supplies!

Homekeeping Tips

  • As simple as it is, I use a simple plastic hamper style container – actually 2 of them for Christmas and other wrap. I put a large plastic bag over them and store them in the attic (or basement, if it is dry). Holds lots of rolls and stands up next to the table where I am wrapping. Works great for me.

  • I have had one of the wrapping paper storage boxes for about 10 years and it is still in great shape. I consider it one of my better storage purchases. You can store it under a bed or standing up in a closet.
