Wrapped Gifts

Set up a wrapping station

Wrapping your gifts is much easier if you have everything that you need in one place. Ideally, a waist high workstation where you can sit or stand to wrap your presents is best. In your gift wrapping station, you will need wrapping paper, scissors, ribbon, tape, gift tags, and a pen. Having everything in one place before you get started makes the gift wrapping process much easier.

Buy Quality Wrapping Paper

If you want your gifts to be beautifully wrapped you need to use a medium-weight wrapping paper. Lighter weight wrapping paper tears easily and can even shred when you cut it, making it more difficult for you than it has to be. You don’t have to buy super expensive wrapping paper, but you probably don’t want the cheapest stuff you can find either.

Use Plenty of Tape

While you don’t want to make it impossible to open the wrapping on your gifts, you do want to make sure that the wrapping paper sticks to the present. This is especially important if you are going to be transporting your gifts, or mailing them. Make sure that you use enough tape to keep your presents beautifully wrapped.

Use Bows and Ribbon Sparingly

Bows and ribbon are the icing on the cake when it comes to gift wrapping. But beware: too much of a good thing can quickly become overwhelming. When adding bows and ribbon to your wrapped gifts, always err on the side of less is more. A simple bow or ribbon accent can go a long way in terms of both aesthetics and holiday cheer.

Don't Be Afraid to Get Creative

There's no rule that says all gifts must be wrapped in traditional wrapping paper. If you're feeling really creative, try using fabric instead. A cute scarf or piece of cloth can make a unique and memorable wrapping for any special occasion. And if you're really in a bind, aluminum foil always does the trick! Get creative with your materials and you'll be sure to impress everyone on your list.

Wrapping gifts doesn't have to be a stressful ordeal. With these easy tips, you'll be able to wrap all of your gifts quickly and easily. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this holiday season!
