Tips and Tricks: How to wrap a Christmas present

The holiday season is fast approaching and people have already started shopping and wrapping gifts for their loved ones. For most recipients, the excitement is not in the gift itself but the packaging. There something special about seeing boxes beautifully wrapped up with Christmas bows and wondering what could be in there.

Tips and tricks of wrapping a Christmas gift

Wrapping your gift box in a brown paper doesn’t make it stand out. To make it look like one of those perfectly wrapped Santa gifts, you have to wrap it nicely. You don’t want it to look all rumpled and bulky.

If you want your holiday gifts to look perfectly presentable under the Christmas tree, we’re going to give you some tips and tricks to help you.

  • Choose high-quality supplies

Know what supplies work best for you. For example, you would need to get a pair of super-sharp scissors for cutting the paper and ribbons.

It’s preferable to get gift wrap in sheets rather than rolls. These are easier to lie flat on a work table. Also, matte wrapping paper is better than glossy paper. The latter shows imperfections conspicuously and rips easily especially if it’s too thin.

Avoid paper that has too much glitter. This makes it hard for the tape to stick.

  • Always use double-sided tape

This is the only sure way to ensure that no tape is visible. Pick tape that’s completely transparent so that it doesn’t show even when it peeks out from underneath.

Double-sided tape comes in different widths so you should choose the right one for the package.
You’re already done with the hard which involves choosing the perfect presents for your loved ones. Now it’s time to wrap them with a healthy dose of perfection and create a classic gift wrap look.

Step by step tutorials on how to wrap a gifts

We’re going to take you through some simple steps that we take when wrapping presents. Here are the supplies that you’re going to need:

  • Wrapping paper 
  • Ribbons/ bows
  • Scissors
  • Tape 

Step 1: Measure the amount of paper that’s needed. Remember that it’s better to have too much paper than too little.

Step 2: Cut the paper. Trim off any excess.

Step 3: Set the box on the paper and fold the paper. Make sure that the seams are at the bottom. Fold the edges neatly. Once the paper is tightly in place, tape it in place.

Step 4: Decorate using a bow or ribbon to finish off the classic wrap.

Step 5: Create a gift tag using the scraps of leftover wrapping material.

Gift wrapping ideas for Christmas

While asking the attendants at the shop where you buy your gifts to wrap them up for you is simple, it’s more fun to do it yourself. This allows you to add a personal touch. We have put together 8 easy wrapping and packaging techniques for Christmas gift to make it more enticing:

  • Photo Gift wrapping

Print out photos of your friends, kids, or entire family preferably from the previous Christmas holiday. Attach the photos onto the gift using ribbons or with yarn.

The good thing about these photos is that they may be framed later.

  • Kraft paper wrapping

Wrap the presents using ordinary brown paper and then take sheets of patterned paper and add them to the center of the gift. To make the packaging more personalized, add a tag with the recipient’s initials. He/she will love the unique feel.

  • Rustic gift wrap

In need of a last-minute wrapping idea? Try this! It’ll allow you to incorporate natural elements into your wrapping. You can either use wood or greenery pieces that you get from right outside your door.

  • Vintage Christmas gift wrap

Find spools or plaid ribbon and tie them around each other. Then attach cardstock tags with a unique old-fashioned look. You can attach evergreen cuttings to the ribbon using a safety pin.

  • Simple embellishments

This gift wrapping technique requires that you attach a vibrant, vintage coaster to a square box. It’s alternative involves lacing tape on simple wrapping paper.

  • White ribbon gift wrap

Whether there’s snow or not this Christmas, you can use elegant white ribbons that are reminiscent of a white winter wonderland. Dress a simple white box with various white ribbon and a balsa wood tag. This will make the present look elegant but will make it feel more substantial.

  • Red and green patterned ribbon

Want your wrapped presents to match your Christmas decorations? Then try this red and green patterned ribbon. The combination has contrasting colors and they help create a dimensional look.

  • Fabric 

Use reusable fabric gift wrap to wrap your presents. The good thing with this technique is that you don’t need tape or glue. The fabric can be tied around the present meaning that you’ll spend very little time doing the wrapping.

The holiday season is upon us. We hope that these wrapping and packaging tips make it easier for you to tie up your presents perfectly this year. Have fun!
