These smart and easy wrapping paper storage ideas will help you organize all of your ribbons, bows, tissue paper, and more!
I hear you. You LOVE gift giving. And the wrapping process? That’s a really fun part of the gift giving experience, too.
But storing all your gift wrapping gear? Well, that can be the not-so-fun part of gift giving. Because the more gifts we give, the more likely it is that we end up with a heap of unorganized, gift giving clutter at home!
Let’s face it, pretty as all those wrapping paper rolls are, they can be awkward to store! Same thing goes for all those fun, festive gift wrapping supplies and accessories.
But rather than starting to gripe and groan about the gift giving process, it’s time to find a storage and organizing system that works for you, and all your fun gifting supplies!
So gather your gift bags, rally your bows! Collect the Scotch tape, washi tape, and tissue paper. Today is the day you’re going to get an awesome, organized storage system started that will work well in your home, regardless of large or little the space is that you have to devote to your personal wrapping station.

Here’s a little video sneak preview of some of these genius storage solutions…
Often, finding a nook or cranny of available space to store wrapping paper is one of the biggest hurdles, so let’s start with a small list of potential spaces that often go overlooked:
Possible Wrapping Paper Storage Spots
- Back of a closet door
- Under a bed
- Under a couch or sofa
- Basement storage area
- Garment Bag inside a closet
- Wall space behind a door
- Under the stairs (AKA Harry Potter solution)
Useful Wrapping Paper Storage Materials
Once you’ve located your available space, it’s time to figure out what storage supplies and materials will work best for that area.
For example, if you’re going to utilize the back of a door, an over-the-door shoe organizer can work well to store rolls of wrapping paper. Elfa (from the Container Store), or similar wire shelving works well for accessories when using a door rack.
If you have some unused wall space, consider mounting a pegboard with dowels and hooks to create a hanging wrapping paper holder. Bungee cords can be used to hang spools of ribbon, as can tension rods and inexpensive dowels or curtain rods.
Have some available space under a bed or a couch? Purchase some large plastic storage containers, or make some rolling underbed storage yourself, it’s simple.
If you’re looking for something more decorative, consider using a pretty basket or box to hold tissue paper, gift bags, and other supplies.
With a little bit of planning, you can ensure that your gifts are always beautifully wrapped, and your wrapping gear doesn’t create clutter.
