Gift Wrapping Tips

  • Bread Bag Clip For Tape Edges – This ingenious hack solves the problem of spending time trying to find the edge of scotch tape. All you need is the clip that holds the bread bag in place. Place the clip at the end of the tape and replace each time you are done tearing off a piece.
  • Color-Coded Gift Wrap – If you waited until the last minute to wrap all of your gifts, then it might get confusing to remember which gifts go to whom. Solve this problem by color-coding wrapping pattern and assign to each family member. It also helps save on gift tags.
  • Double-Sided Tape – If you want your gifts to look like they were wrapped by professionals, then consider using double-sided tape. Place the tap where the wrapping paper overlaps. This helps create a real clean look.
  • Decorate With Garland – If you have any extra garland lying around your home, finish off a present with a strand of garland to add a touch of pizazz.
  • Use The Takashimaya Wrapping Method – If you’re in a pinch and short on time, take a look at videos on how Japanese department store Takashimaya wraps its presents. It is known for how quickly it can wrap gifts using just three pieces of tape in less than 30 seconds.
  • Swap Out Paper For Aluminum Foil – You don’t have to using wrapping paper all the time. If you have excess aluminum foil, you can do this to dress up a present.
  • Attach Fresh Greenery – Instead of using a bow or ribbon, attach a small branch of pine or festive frond to a present.
