I have two schools of thought on ribbon. 1. I like to buy small amounts of specialty ribbon {usually expensive} and I use it only for really special occasions. 2. I buy large amounts of this satin ribbon {double faced 1.5″ inch satin} and use it generously on presents and decoration. The satin ribbon is one of my secret sources. For $10 they give you 50 yards. Because it is so cheap you can use a lot. I have a huge box of the stuff in every color. The picture below is from Christmas 2006 where I used it a lot. Not all of their ribbon is good {avoid the wired–it is poor quality} but I can vouch for the double faced Satin!

    I almost ordered from there, based on your suggestion from last year! I ended up ordering several 20yd rolls of striped grosgrain from good quality and good prices, too.

    wow, this is great! i usually like the wired ribbon because it I can create fancier bows with it, but these gifts all look fantastically wrapped!
