This bright wrap can be used for any holiday or celebration. Nantucket beacons stand tall and proud through glorious summers and ruthless island winters alike. This nautical wrapping paper is perfect for lighthouse enthusiasts, as well as Nantucket natives, residents, and visitors. Our Lighthouse wrapping paper is artfully designed by Blair and Rachael, of Grey Lady Gifts.
The Nantucket Lightship and Sankaty Lighthouse are historic beacons. Nantucket has been graced by two types of beacons. Lighthouses are on the land, and Lightships are on the water. Here, these illustrations of them add whimsy to this versatile paper. It’s popular with children and adults alike.
Sankaty Head Lighthouse was built in 1850, and it still functions as a navigational device. The tower is not open to the public, but you can walk around the grounds at any time of the year. The location offers a breathtaking view of the island’s moors and the mighty Atlantic Ocean.
Nantucket Lightship vessel, first moored in 1854, marked the hazardous Nantucket Shoals south of Nantucket Island. This boat was an important US Lightship Station for transatlantic voyages. She was the last light seen leaving the United States to Europe, and the first light seen approaching the United States.
