We conveniently buy everything from furniture to socks online, so why should gift wrap be any different? Here's a roundup of our favorite papers that are so stylish, they'll instantly make your present the most coveted in the room. Just tie on a simple ribbon as a finishing touch, and get ready to win major bonus points with those you need to impress the most (i.e. your mother-in–law or super polished boss).
Black and white never go out of style and these Mod prints remind us of the pages of a vintage Biba catalog (the iconic London department store that was all the rage in the '60s and '70s). Of course the monochromatic scheme goes with anything, so get groovy and top these packages off with bold, colorful bows.
These embossed sheets from the luxury stationery brand Bell'Invito are pricier than what you'd find in a stationary store, but they guarantee a symphony of "oohs" and "aahs". Play with textures and pair them with a velvety ribbon—black would look especially chic.
