Beat the Holiday Wrap
Paper, tags, fabric?
Now comes the wrapping. Maybe you've found your stash of wrapping paper. Or not. Or you don't have enough, especially for that one big, oversized box. Where can you buy holiday wrapping paper?
Here's an almost-A to almost-Z list of wrapping paper sources. All had a supply of the holiday staple as of this past mid-week.
Try CVS on Sudbury Road or Rite Aid on Lowell Road for Concord Center, and in West Concord, there is the West Concord Pharmacy and the 5 & 10. Concord Hand Designs at 35 Main St. sells all sorts of wrapping bags and fun paper too.
Crosby's Market sells flowers and wrapping paper as well.
And in Burlington, on Cambridge Street, there's Michael's.
Notice that the parking lots are getting larger, the walk to and from the car possibly longer, an opportunity to exercise during the calorie-rich holidays.
A little farther afield, try the Paper Store in Bedford for paper and cards.
If you're in the market for a little more creativity with your gift wrapping, consider fabric. A scarf or towel will cover an oddly-shaped gift well. A small present can hide in a stocking or even one of a pair of socks—holiday-themed, of course—which can become part of the gift.
Before you go on your wrapping paper ride, consider the following questions to save yourself a second trip out, when checkout lines will be longer and parking lots fuller. Need tissue paper? Bows? Nametags? And check your tape dispenser before you leave the house.
