A few years ago my father decided that he wanted to give my sister and me each a special Christmas gift, just from him. He made his own wrapping paper by color-copying pictures of us as kids that he carefully selected from the family photo albums. My gift that year was my favorite children’s book, The Once a Year Witch, that we took out from the local library dozens of times and which I begged him to read to me over and over. While no longer in print, he had convinced the local librarian twenty years later to give him the book in exchange for a modest donation. Well, it looks like one of my favorite paper shops, Minted, is following Dad’s lead with Personalized Wrapping Paper. Here are some cute choices for your special gift this year:
The fact that this one is customized “Love the Harrisons” only further convinces me that my father, John Harrison, was the inspiration for this!
