6 Ideas for Spectacular Gift-Giving this Christmas

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

6 Ideas for Spectacular Gift-Giving this ChristmasIt is never too early to start thinking about the presentation of your Christmas gifts, and at Paper Plus, we are stocked full of awesome ideas to make your presents especially memorable.

1. Half-off Christmas Gift Wrap, Ribbon and More!

You will love our selection of Christmas gift wrap, ribbon (from curling to satin to printed to totally unique), hundreds of styles of gift tags to suit every occasion, fifty colors of tissue, and mylar sheeting for that lovely metallic sheen. Whether you’re wrapping two gifts or two hundred, Paper Plus’ friendly discount prices allow for great gifts and lovely wrapping.

2. Giving an irregular-sized or delicate gift? We have a box for that!

With the advent of online shipping, many goods no longer come with their appropriate gift boxes. Don’t give your sweetheart jewelry from a drawstring bag — find a box! Paper Plus has boxes for jewelry, folding boxes of all shapes and sizes, apparel boxes, cake boxes for baked goods, craft boxes to personalize, and shipping boxes.

We also carry bubble wrap, mailers, tape and other essential post office goods.

3. Make ornaments together!

We love crafting. This year, get the kids involved (or don’t) for Christmas tree ornament making. These are special crafts that reappear every year when you (or whoever you’ve given them to) decorate the tree — a truly meaningful way to live the Christmas spirit.

Our shelves are stocked with ready-to-decorate ornaments, wire hangers, tinsel, beads, stickers, beautiful decorative papers, felt, glue, tape and so much more. We also carry a line of antique wooden Christmas ornaments for just 25 cents apiece.

4. Add to your Christmas card list and check it twice!

Paper Plus is the affordable Christmas card seller in the Bay area. We carry single and boxes Christmas cards in a huge variety:

  • silly Christmas cards
  • animals Christmas cards
  • Japanese print Christmas cards
  • religious Christmas cards
  • secular Seasons’ Greetings / Happy Holidays cards
  • New Years’ cards (these boxed cards are HALF price!)
  • Make your own cards with handmade paper, envelopes in different colors and sheens, stickers and more

5. Make it the Office Holiday Party to remember!

Office managers, we carry all the party goods you’ll need to make your company’s holiday party stylish and festive! You’ll find table rolls, placemats, “sturdy style” colored plates and matching cups and utensils (or mix and match colors), plus decorations to fit any holiday or office situation.

6. Festive odds and ends make the season bright.

At Paper Plus, you’ll find perfect party goods you didn’t even know you wanted, like a set of patterned poinsettia or snowflake plates to complete your Christmas table setting, or some mylar Christmas balloons to brighten up a party setting. Speaking of keeping things bright, did you know we have Christmas lights and candles at a discount? Look for our candles, pillar candles, LED candles and colorful Christmas candles.

Whew, that’s a lot of Christmas spirit! Paper Plus is ready to help you find what you need (or what you just want) this Christmas season. Call us at (510) 525-1799 to ask if we carry something specific, or visit our North Berkeley store before December 25th!

How to Get Jolly for San Francisco Santacon

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Set of red Santa Claus hats for SantaconSantacon — the annual flashmob parade of slightly sober Bay Area people dressed in Santa suits – has officially entrenched itself in the past couple years as a San Francisco public tradition.

Also known as “Santarchy” and “The Red Tide,” the city-wide pub crawl starts with toy donations in Union Square this Saturday, December 12 at noon and proceeds to pretty much cover the city’s landmarks, bars and dance clubs until well into the night.

What do you need to participate in Santacon? A Santa suit, of course!

But that’s hardly a simple answer, because there’s so much you can do with a Santa costume. Paper Plus has everything to outfit the budding Santa within you, including not only the tradition soft red-and-white Santa suits, but also the largest selection of Santa hats.

Authentic Sinterklaus’ will appreciate our selection of white beards, gloves, and suspenders.

Feeling like going dressy this year? Classy Saint Nicks might prefer our miniature Santa hats or Santa hat clips, which pair well with a cute flannel dress and ho-ho-ho boots.

Give your Santa costume some California sunshine love with our Santa sunglasses. We even have Santa themed tutus!

Watching the fun from afar? Throw on one of Paper Plus’ twenty-some Santa headbands. They’re easy to put on and take off when the Christmas mood suits you (or when the bar you want to patronize has a No Santa policy).

Get over to Paper Plus in North Berkeley before this Saturday and stand out in a sea of Santas.

Looking for something in particular? We’re friendly! Call us at (510) 525-1799.
