5 need-to-know gift-wrapping tips
- Try to wrap a present as soon as you buy it. You may think you have lots of time to do it, but wrapping ahead of schedule means there no risk of last-minute wrapping chaos. Plus, you’ll have plenty of time to wrap it properly and make it look professional.
- Take your time! Plan how you’re going to wrap a present before you start and you’re less likely to make mistakes.
- Have the right equipment with you. This should include double-sided tape, which makes your gift look neater and cuts down on your wrapping time.
- The secret to a beautifully wrapped gift? Not using too much wrapping paper, which can cause bulky folds. Before trimming, wrap the paper around the box to check how much you’ll need: the ends should overlap by just a couple of inches.
- Add decoration. From bows and ribbons to pretty gift tags, these extra little details can make all the difference.
