It’s the most wonderful time of the year and nothing puts you more in the Christmas spirit than wrapping up all of those gifts and strategically packing them under the tree.
Tuning into a Christmas movie while trying to wrap presents can result in missing some of your favorite parts, but jamming some classic holiday tunes will not only boost that spirited mood, but keep you inspired and motivated. As you begin your wrapping for this holiday season, here are 8 songs to add to your Christmas wrapping playlist.
We Need A Little Christmas by Percy Faith
Start your wrapping session with We Need a Little Christmas which is bound to get you in the holiday spirit. You’ll be hauling out the holly and stuffing those stockings in no time.
Humbug by Owl City
Let go of your woes as you listen to Humbug because if you’re wrapping gifts, you’ve already survived the hardest part of the holiday season…shopping for the gift. If you still have no clue what to get someone, consider wrapping yourself up and sitting under their tree because the best gift you have to give is purely your love.
Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt
Be sure to take extra care when wrapping that present for your Baby by creasing straight edges and accompanying your bow with nothing less than 6” ribbon curls. You may not be gifting a yacht or an auto space convertible, but this song will definitely help make whatever you’re giving look perfect for your little cup of hot cocoa.
Little Drummer Boy by Mannheim Steamroller
Though packaging gifts can be fun, you may need an extra push to make it through those awkward shaped gifts or the 30th stocking stuffer you’re tempted to just shove into the bottom of the sock sans paper. Mannheim Steamroller’s Little Drummer Boy has the perfect beat to keep you moving like a factory worker on a conveyor belt which will push you through your wrapping hesitations.
Carol of the Bells by Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Another song that packs some serious beats and can keep you moving quickly through those presents is Trans Siberian Orchestra’s rendition of Carol of the Bells. If you are running out of time and really need to pick up the pace, this song has got you covered.
White Christmas by Bing Crosby
Slow it down, sip your hot chocolate, watch the flakes fall outside, and get detailed with each gift as you listen to the best-selling Christmas song of all time. Only a voice as smooth as Bing’s can inspire you to take your time and add those special touches to each wrap.
A Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives
Reminisce back to your childhood and your annual viewing of the classic stop-motion animated television special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” with A Holly Jolly Christmas. If the voice sounds familiar, it is because Burl Ives actually voiced Sam the Snowman in the film.
The Grinch Song from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
Have any family members that are as cuddly as a cactus, but you still try to reach out to that heart that is two sizes too small every Christmas season? The Grinch Song could possibly pop up on your playlist while wrapping their gift…it could be our Christmas secret.
After all the bows have been placed and every corner has been taped, it’s time to relax while the chestnuts roast on the open fire.
