Busy Mom! Tired of searching for the scissors & tape?!!

Nevada, United States | On Etsy since 2019

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    If You Hate How Long It Takes to Wrap or the Hassle of Cleaning Up After, I GET IT!! If the waste makes you crazy, yup, I'm with you there, too.


As a mom of 5 kids working full time I had missed my share of moments, but the worst was spending all night wrapping every Christmas Eve instead of watching Rudolph and drinking hot chocolate with the kids.

Has that ever happened to you?

Let me tell you my story about how I thought I loved to wrap Christmas presents. You see, I love the IDEA of wrapping presents. For me it looks like this: glass of wine, my favorite Christmas music, beautifully wrapped presents all around and, what seems odd to me now, no mess.

But the reality of wrapping presents is: wrapping paper all over the floor, three rolls of tape because I keep losing it, scissors, random boxes and oh yea A HUGE MESS. Do you see the disconnect? The first present I’d wrap would be fun. But soon my back would be aching and my wrapping got worse and worse.

It was in that moment that I fantasized about a faster way to wrap a present. What if I didn’t need a box, what if I didn’t need to cut the paper… what if it was multi-use so I wouldn’t need to throw it all away or buy more next year? Wouldn’t that be amazing? What if instead of wrapping presents, I was with my kids on Christmas Eve?

The thing is, I thought loved to wrap. Until I realized that I don't. It's not the wrapping and the cutting and the losing the scissors and tape. No. That stuff makes me insane. Along with an aching back and the mess surrounding me.

Late one night I started to have this fantasy (stay with me here!). I fantasized about not having to cut the paper anymore. What if it was pre-cut? What if I didn't need tape? What if I didn't have to find a box and lid that matched? What if it was reusable?!!!

Not exactly the type of fantasy one might hope for, but that set me out on a two year journey to create my dream product. My invention is called Pop-Up Gift Wrap, and if you're reading this, then you were just looking at it!

Did you think it was just a wrapped present? Were you wondering why it has such a weird name? Well, It's kinda like having wrapping paper that is pre-cut and pre-formed and strong enough to be the wrapping paper AND a box at the same time!!

But, the coolest part is I CAN WRAP A PRESENT IN ABOUT 30 SECONDS and it will look perfect and beautiful. Another priceless feature is after the present is opened it folds flat to store easily, ready to be used again.

With the GIVE SIMPLY GUARANTEE there is no risk to joining the BoxWrap revolution of Multi-Use BoxWrap: Single Use wrapping paper is so last century.

Video summary: You'll actually say, out loud, "OMG! This is SO easy!" This super short clip shows you how to wrap a present as well as how to quickly fold the wrap back to flat for reuse and storage.

Our Promise to you: You will Finish wrapping with Pop-Up Gift Wrap FASTER than you can get everything you need to wrap a present with traditional wrapping paper. (Box, Tape, Scissors, Roll of Wrapping Paper)

I often hear, “What a great idea! How did you come up with this?”

Have you ever done all of your shopping early and wrapped one gift at a time as you bought it? Well, I admire you so much, but that’s not me. I’m more of a pull-out-all-the-presents-Christmas Eve-and-wrap-them-into-the-wee-hours-of-the-morning kind of girl. I’m a working mom with 5 kids. My only goal was survival!

I’d always imagined myself going up to my room with a glass of wine for some quiet alone time while my husband entertained the troops for a few hours. I’d get out the paper, the scissors and the tape. I’d organize the gifts into little piles, one for each child. I’d envision each gift beautifully wrapped with ribbon and a cute gift tag.

Instead it was Christmas Eve like every other. About an hour into wrapping, back aching, surrounded by a mess of scraps, poorly wrapped gifts with names written in Sharpie, scissors and tape lost yet again, I found myself fantasizing about an easier way. Literally. It was 3 AM and I was hallucinating about pre-cut paper. Paper that could fold perfectly around the box. No! Forget the box! What if it was the box and the paper at the same time! And what if it folded flat and I could store it under my bed for the next year!

Christmas morning, a mere 3 hours later, all that work I’d done was shredded and crumpled and shoved into trash bags. What a waste. A waste of time that could have been with my family (or taking a hot bath with that glass of wine!); a waste of energy to throw all that together, and they didn’t even look good; a waste of paper! Millions of tons of gift wrap filling everyone’s trash bins, lining the streets and headed straight to landfill. Does this sound at all familiar to you?

For me, the idea of quickly and easily wrapping a gift, with zero mess to clean up afterwards, while being earth-friendly, is like a little gift to me, the earth and my family. I hope it’s a gift in your life as well.

    This printer provides state-of-the-art printing in an eco-friendly facility. After being unable to have the product made in the USA, I met with a highly recommended Print shop in China. After touring the facility I met with the CEO and line workers to ensure quality and responsible work conditions.

Frequently asked questions
Is it made from paper?

YES, IT’S MADE OF REAL PAPER. We use paper that is FSC Certified. ‘FSC' stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organization that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. Paper manufacturers that produce FSC-Certified products work to protect habitat, prevent pollution, plant more trees than are harvested and avoid displacing native peoples and harming wildlife. For more information, go to www.fsc.org.

How is this Gift Wrap Recyclable?

Unlike most wrapping paper and bags that have a plastic coating, we chose to use an aqueous, or water-based coating. It provides protection for the art and allows for wiping down the wrap. In addition, our inks are soy based, which means after many uses, the wrap is safely recycled with other recyclable paper products.

Does it come in other sizes?

We currently have two sizes. The small is perfect for anything that you put into a standard little gift bag, from jewelry and gift cards, to mugs, candles or scarves. The large is perfect for clothes, books, frames.

We DO look forward to expanding the line, and will keep you updated if you join our mailing list from out website: www.givesimply.com

Do I need a box?

No, the "insert" that can be seen at the center of the wrap provides the structure so you DON'T NEED A BOX.

Care instructions

Pop-Up Gift Wrap can be disinfected and/or wiped down. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL this will break down the water based coating. The wrap is designed to fold into a perfectly wrapped present. It also folds back to flat for storage. Do Not Force it closed. It has some memory so it will want to return to its original storage position.
