Prior to moving to the suburbs and having children, I had heard about gift wrapping rooms and thought they were ri-dic-u-lous. Who on earth needs an entire room dedicated to wrapping presents? Who’s giving enough gifts to warrant this? Well, it turns out, kids are giving gifts all the freaking time. Like Heather Dubrow, I have four children and it came as a real shock when I discovered that kids’ social lives are LIT. For real. They go to more birthday parties in one year than I have in the past decade.
And as a result, I’m wrapping presents (Legos! Barbies! Fidget spinners!) all the damn time. I’ve got wrapping paper stored in kitchen cabinets, ribbon in the basement, and I can never, ever find my scissors — it’s a s--t show. Which is why I'm now totally lusting over Heather’s gift-wrapping “wall” in her massive laundry room.
"I'm not Candy Spelling, I don't have a whole gift wrapping room... but I do have a gift-wrapping wall," Heather said in her latest video from her Heather's Closet YouTube channel. "I'm so glad I created this space. One of my favorite things to do in here is wrap presents with the kids. I love when we're going off to a birthday party, we come down here and choose the right wrapping paper and the ribbon and you know, sometimes the combinations are beyond hideous, but they love it and it's from them and they've chosen it."
An organizer’s dream, the area is comprised of drawers and cabinets bursting with everything you could possibly ever need to wrap a gift. And almost all of it is custom… you know, tissue paper monogrammed with “HD,” boxes and ribbon with “Dubrow” on them, and even gift tags with the family’s faces. Yes, really.
While I don’t really need a gift-wrapping room, I totally want one and per usual, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum is setting the bar supes high. Let’s take a look at the most over-the-top details she shared in the tour of her favorite room in the house.
