Five tips for successful wrapping…
1. Measure up and organise first
Clear a table top or flat work surface area before you start wrapping. Lay your scissors, sticky tape, and wrapping gear out and make sure you have everything you will need to wrap before you start – because it’s all about getting into the ‘wrapping zone’, and once you’re in it, nothing should stand in your way of getting everything wrapped.
2. Tags and ribbons
Pre-buy lots of tags, decorations and ribbons to embellish the presents you’re giving. Honestly, you can never have too many and there’s nothing more annoying than running out mid-wrapping session. A maximalist approach never fails, so consider adding more than just the one ribbon, bow or tag to a gift so it doesn’t look scrimped.
3. Use a good-quality pen
Don’t just grab a ballpoint pen or pencil, use Christmas as an opportunity to show off your best handwriting and finish your gift tags with some quality calligraphy.
4. Consider cost
If you’re decorating gifts on a budget then consider wrapping small presents with the more expensive paper that you’ve bought, and larger ones in cheaper paper.
5. Time for tinsel?
Love it or loathe it, one of the most acceptable places to pop some tinsel is on a gift. It’s got cool kitsch credentials and packs fun-factor.
Make your gift-packing even more attractive with wrapping paper that you can personalise.
