Oh, wrapping paper. It brings back so many fond memories. Namely, navigating crowded stores after realizing it's too late to place an online order, only to find a bad selection of leftover rolls. Anyone else?

This year ​will​ be different. "Why?" you may ask. Well, because August is the new December when it comes to gift wrapping. And not just any old gift wrapping. Chic gift wrapping. Wrapping that's created from recycled materials or utilizes artists' prints or is maybe even made by hand.

Plus, wrapping paper isn't limited to one season. We need it all year long — for birthdays, housewarming gifts, and so on and so forth. Instead of frantically rummaging around the house looking for anything that somewhat resembles gift wrapping each time an event pops up, stock up now. Minus a few holiday-inspired papers, we have rounded up the most elevated wrapping paper you can use all year round. Let's be proactive (and stylish) together.
