A selection of exquisitely wrapped gifts are perfect for pop-over guests and for sprinkling around the house for touches of holiday spirit. "Welcome guests with a porcelain compote filled with tiny boxes of chocolate wrapped in colorful, patterned paper from a stationary store," home stylist Matthew Mead says. For kids, "cards, puzzles and mini games can be wrapped and trimmed with candies." He suggests keeping other little pre-wrapped surprises, such as books and gift cards, on hand as well.

This shoe closet is so big it can only be captured with a wide-angle lens. Note how the shoes are placed on sliding shelves on a rail system, much like some public libraries use for books in England. That’s where Walter James got this idea, when trying to devise a storage system for his wife Tiffany’s more than 600 pairs of shoes. Walter designed the closet with three stationary back shelves and three additional rows of double shelves on a track with wheels and a header on top to hold the shelves in place and to keep them stable. The entire closet is made of cedar.
