How To Perfect Your Present Wrapping This Christmas

We all love receiving a well-wrapped present at Christmas – but we don’t all love having to wrap them in the first place. Lots of us dread getting the paper and Sellotape out, for fear that our gift will look like our toddler has wrapped it, not ourselves. (Although, this is a great excuse if your wrapping has gone pear-shaped – “the kids wanted to help”). Here are some top tips that will help you perfect your present wrapping this Christmas. 

Prep Like A Pro

Before you get to the pretty paper, make sure you adequately prepare your present, particularly if it is a fragile item. If you aren’t giving your gift in person and need to prepare your items for parcel delivery, make sure you take sufficient measures to stop them getting damaged or broken. Buy plenty of bubble wrap and brown paper to give your gift an extra layer of protection. It’s also important to get an appropriately sized box – putting a tiny fragile item in a massive box is asking for trouble.

Wrap Like A Pro

A beautifully wrapped present really shows that you have put care and attention into a gift – but its not easy. We’ve all had those wrapping nightmares… you’ve cut the paper too small, you’ve folder over a corner and accidentally ripped the entire thing and had to start again, joy. It’s best to size up your paper first by rolling it out and popping your present on top – this will give you a good idea whether you’ll have enough. Once cut, lay out the paper and place your present on top diagonally. The paper should look like four triangles popping out from under your gift. Fold, tape and you’re done. To create the wow factor, add some red or gold ribbon – your prezzie will look so pretty they won’t want to open it.

Go Green 

Where you can this year, go green by opting for environmentally friendly wrapping paper and greeting cards. Brits bin the equivalent of 108 million rolls of wrapping paper at Christmas and 100 million bags full of present packaging. Most wrapping paper isn’t paper – as the wrap often contain non-recyclable materials such as foil, plastic, glitter and is usually covered in glue and Sellotape. Go for paper options that are made from recycled materials, that can be recycled themselves once Christmas day is over, to do your bit for the environment this festive season.

So, there you have it. Now that the wrapping is sorted, time to relax and enjoy some festive fun.
