Blogmas Day 14 - How To Wrap Christmas Presents?

Ok, I am going to admit, I am not an expert at wrapping Christmas presents. But wait. Don't stop reading because I have a few solutions.

Are you a pro wrapper? Well these tips might come in handy if you run out of wrapping paper, so still read on

Plain & Simple
This idea is just plain and simple.It looks really nice but with no hassle. All you need is 3 items. Some ribbon, a bow, and a gift tag. Simply wrap a piece of ribbon down the centre, and then another piece of ribbon across the centre (basically making a cross), stick the bow in the middle (where the cross of ribbon meets), and add a gift tag. It sounds more complicated than it is because it's kinda hard to explain.

Gift Bags
This one is ideal if you have a few gifts for someone. Just place all of the gifts into the bag, and add some tissue paper. You could also pop the Christmas card inside too. It looks really nice when you pass them the bag full of gifts . You can get gift bags in a variety of different themes, so there is one for everyone. You could get a Christmas theme, plain, sparkly glitter, patterns, stripes... need I list anymore? Also, they are available in a lot of different sizes, which is ideal.

Gift Boxes
This method can be quite expensive, especially if you are going to get a gift box for everyone. However it saves you a lot of hassle, and still looks amazing. Gift boxes are (in my opinion) a 'posher' version of a gift bag.Gift boxes are simply an empty box. They are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and patterns. Most gift boxes are made from thick sturdy card so they give some added protection to more fragile presents.

Gift Sets
While 'technically' this is the most expensive method on the list, it could actually work out to be the best value. Because it includes the gift in the price, but they are pre-packaged and are presented beautifully. From sweets, to perfume sets, and many more there is the perfect gift for anyone. Gift sets are super easy to find anywhere, especially Christmas time. It should be ready to give as it is, but if you think it doesn't look gift ready, simply do Method 1 (Ribbon, a bow and gift tag) and it's ready.

Shopping Services
I didn't quite know what to all this one. Sometimes shops, charities or schools offer a gift wrapping service for a small fee. It's basically where they wrap the presents for you. Just pay them and they will do all the work for you, and usually do a very good job.

Ask Someone
If you insist the presents must be wrapped. Ask someone. There must be someone, whether it's family or a friend who can help you - just make sure you don't make them wrap their own present (it will ruin the surprise). Two people are better than one.
