February 8th, 2022 by

If you are like most people and find it impossible to wrap gifts without ripping the paper, underestimating the amount of wrap needed, or struggling to properly fold the corners without wrinkles springing up everywhere, then you will find these tips helpful.

The gift-wrapping season is upon us. This means hours of frustration as we work our way through wrapping copious amounts of gifts of all shapes and sizes. However, that feeling of accomplishment when you actually successfully wrap the perfect gift is worth it. As such, this blog will provide you with a few tips on how to properly wrap gifts this season.

The Ribbon
The ribbon is what makes the present stand out. Regardless of what wrap you use, a ribbon will cover up any blemishes and make the gift look good. The best place to get ribbons is Hobby Lobby or Michaels. They are usually super cheap and seem to always be on sale. You can usually find an entire roll for just a few dollars. You can also get ribbons by the yard from Etsy or Shy Myrtle. These ribbons are curated and specially designed. The best ribbon tying tip is to wrap the ribbon around the edges of the gift and make a big bow. You can also wrap it around the center of the gift a few times and add an accessory like an ornament or fresh greens.

Be Prepared
The best tip for holiday gift wrapping is to be prepared. Make sure that you have enough boxes, tape, ribbons, pens, markers, paintbrushes, or whatever else you personally need to wrap presents. It’s a hassle to fiddle around to find the right materials, which is why it is smart to designate a part of your house for wrapping. Clear out a room and make it a giftwrapping station. Your life will become much easier. Also, do not wait until the last minute to wrap gifts. As they say, “slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.”

Remember, gift wrapping does not need to be a stressful endeavor. Pop on some Christmas music, sip some hot chocolate, and take some time out of your day and make the people that you love feel special with a beautifully-wrapped present.
