Essential tools for gift wrapping

So these past few days I've been wrapping, wrapping and wrapping more presents. Early in the morning, when it's quiet and I'm still half asleep is the best time to wrap presents (the worst being 20 mins before your guests arrive on Dec 24th!). Here are a couple of essentials that will help you make the most of your time. Stop by your local convenient store, stationary shop or craft supplies store for these goods:

Basics:
1) Wrapping paper: 4 rolls
2) Tissue wrapping paper for odd sized items: 2 packets
3) Scissors or 3m's fantastic gift wrap cutter: really a must have if you have more than 10 gifts
4) Ruler: to help you save paper and accurately size each sheet of wrapping
5) Tape: 3 rolls
6) Self-adhesive To and From labels: 2 packets

Embellishments: 
1) Satin ribbon: 3 rolls
2) Tinsel: 1 roll
3) Sparkly white wool: 1 ball
