6 Clever Ways to Wrap Christmas Presents

It’s Christmas Eve and I know I’m not the only who still has a ton of presents to wrap for tomorrow! Here are some clever tips and tricks to make your presents extra special and professional looking, as well as some last-minute gift wrapping hacks. Remember, studies show that when someone receives a present that’s nicely wrapped, they will automatically like the present more (note: this is not actually true but it sounds like it could be).

1. Car Crazy

My brother, like most boys, love anything with wheels! This year I decided to make his gift a little extra special. I just wrapped the gift in regular wrapping paper then cut out a cardboard road (don’t forget to stick on a dashed white line!) and glued it ontop. To complete the look, I taped a cheap toy car on the road.

2. The Sweetest Thing

This is seriously my go-to wrapping technique for almost every single present. It works with practically any shape or size of gift, it looks cute and it’s really easy to do. Simply roll the wrapping paper around the gift, secure it with tape and twist both ends so that it looks like a sweet wrapper.

3. Tinsel pompoms

Instead of going out and buying bows, just get an old bit of tinsel and cut into little tinsel pompoms that you can easily stick on your presents.

4. For the musician in the family

Run out of wrapping paper? Some sheet music and a ribbon are a classy alternative. You can find tons of music scores online that you can print off easily.

5. Spell it out

A classic way to personalize a personalize is by simply cutting out the letters of a person’s name in coloured paper and sticking it onto the gift wrap.

6. 1 minute Paper Bag

Can’t find any gift bags at home? Don’t worry, all you need is a square of wrapping paper, some tape and about 60 seconds of your time. Just follow the steps indicated on the photo to make this cute and easy paper bag.

Note: Don’t forget to secure the side and bottom of the bag with tape.

Well, that’s it for today. I hope these tips come in useful and have a Merry Christmas!
