‘Tis the Season: Holiday Wraps at Michaels

When the holidays roll around, Michaels really ups their wrapping paper game. The stores overflow with gorgeous seasonally-themed paper to wrap your gifts in festive style. Here are some of my favorite holiday wraps I love picking up at Michaels:

Christmas: From traditional gingham plaids and cheerfully printed poinsettia wraps to 3D paper with flocking, embossing and glitter – Christmas truly comes to life in their wrapping paper selection.

Hanukkah: Shop an array of beautiful prints featuring menorahs, dreidels, stars and blues for wrapping Hanukkah gifts.

Kwanzaa: Michaels stocks papers symbolizing Kwanzaa’s seven core principles in vibrant palette.

New Year’s: Gold and silver dotted, striped and confetti prints make perfect paper for ringing in the new year.

Other holidays: Whether it’s glittery oranges and skeletons for Halloween or pastel eggs and flowers for Easter, Michaels has themed wraps for other holidays too.

When it comes to seasonally-inspired wrapping paper, no other craft store compares to the festive selection at Michaels. I love picking out new holiday gift wrap designs each year for that extra dose of cheer.

A Gift for Your Wallet: Wrapping Paper Prices at Michaels

Here’s an extra present – Michaels’ wrapping paper is very competitively priced! Their everyday prices on wrapping paper rolls and packs are in line with or lower than other major craft retailers. For instance, a roll of their premium printed wrap is around $6 regular price. Comparable paper at brand name stores can run you $8 to $12.

I’ve also found their pricing stays consistent, unlike big box stores that seem to jack up paper prices during the holidays. No Scrooge-like markups at Michaels!

They run great sales too. It’s common to find rolls and multipacks 40-50% off. Recently, I snagged a 6-pack of coordinating holiday gift wrap marked down to only $10. Their famous Buy One Get One Free sales apply to wrapping paper too.

Between the reasonable regular prices and frequent promotions, you can stock up on rolls upon rolls of delightful wrapping paper at Michaels without putting too big of a dent in your wallet.

‘Tis the Season to Go Green: Eco-Friendly Wrapping Paper

Eco-conscious wrappers, rejoice – Michaels offers plenty of earth-friendly wrapping paper options! From recycled paper to natural fiber wraps in subdued colors, there are lots of ways to go green with your Michaels gift wrapping:

  • Recycled paper wraps: Look for the “recycled paper” label on rolls and packs – these are made with post-consumer waste paper.
  • Kraft paper: Unbleached natural brown kraft paper with twisted fiber adds rustic charm.
  • Wood pulp paper: Wrapping paper made from renewable wood pulp is compostable and biodegradable.
  • Vegetable-dyed paper: Color derived from vegetable-based dyes is another eco-friendly choice.
  • FSC-Certified paper: The FSC logo indicates paper sourced from responsibly managed forests.
  • Natural materials: Jute, coconut husk, tree bark – wraps literally from nature!
  • Minimal packaging: Eco-friendly wraps come wrapped in paper bands vs. plastics.

Going green doesn’t mean scrimping on style. Michaels’ eco-friendly papers include beautiful earthy prints and stonewashed looks. Part of me hopes my gifts aren’t fully unwrapped just so the paper can be reused!

Roll Out the Green Carpet: Wrapping Paper Dimensions

When selecting rolls of wrapping paper at Michaels, you’ll notice they stock two common widths:

30″ wide rolls: This is the standard width that comes to mind for most wrapping paper. At Michaels, 30″ rolls typically have 20-36 square feet of paper. Perfect for wrapping smaller gifts like shirts, toys, or photo albums.

60″ wide “Jumbo” rolls: A wider roll specifically designed for wrapping larger items like gift baskets or furniture. Get a whopping 65-85 square feet of paper on a jumbo roll from Michaels.

Roll length varies, but in my experience both standard and jumbo rolls usually have paper lengths between 50-100 feet at Michaels. This gives you yards and yards of wrapping pleasure!

The wide jumbo rolls are brilliant for efficiently wrapping unwieldy gifts. And if you’re gifting tons of presents, the standard 30″ rolls allow you to stock up on multiple coordinating prints. Either way, Michaels has you – and your gifts – covered!

‘Tis the Season for Giving: Bulk Buying Options

If you’re wrapping for a crowd this holiday season, rejoice in Michaels’ bulk buying options on wrapping paper! Bulking up on rolls, multipacks and even pallet quantities can save you serious money at Michaels.

Some of the ways you can buy in bulk:

  • Multipacks: Get 3-8 coordinating rolls bundled in packs for one low price. Great for wrapping with a consistent theme.
  • Stock up savings: Buy 2, Get 3 Free! Or other bigger pack quantity discounts.
