Whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, a wedding celebration, (or any other excuse!) everyone loves opening a present. With the festive season approaching it’s important to know that gift giving should also be just as fulfilling, but we know all too well how easy it is to become stressed when things don’t go to plan. But before you call it a wrap, never fear! With our tips and tricks, gift wrapping will be a breeze and a fun festive activity.

The right tools

The first step is to ensure you have the right tools for the job. Let’s start with the basics: you’ll need a sharp pair of scissors, some Sellotape, and some wrapping paper. But where and how are you sending it? You may also need an envelope and to consider how you package your item; our range of padded mailers will ensure nothing gets damaged in sleigh transit this year. Next, look at your workspace: is it cluttered and disorderly, or tidy and systematic? For the best result, you should aim for the latter and make sure your tools are easily accessible. If you’re using ribbon you might want to try curling it. For this, it would be useful having an extra pair of scissors that are dull as this makes the process easier.

Finally, never be afraid to add too many embellishments! When you’ve chosen a brilliant gift, the perfect paper, and wrapped it beautifully using our tips, you’ll want to add the cherry on top and decorate the outside of the package. Whether it’s a bow, tinsel, or a bough of holly, allow yourself to get creative and have fun.

The next level

Are you ready to take your wrapping to the next level? Go beyond the basics and use double-sided tape and a ruler when cutting and sticking your paper for a seamless finish that’s guaranteed to impress. For the very best in stationery supplies, check out our range today. Unusual shapes? Embrace them! If you’re really struggling to wrap something, try using a gift bag or an appropriate box and then wrap that. This makes most awkward objects easy to wrap and saves you any trouble, but what if it’s too big for a gift bag? When a gift bag or box isn’t an option, it’s still not time to panic; it’s time to get creative! Other props such as tinsel or baubles can also be used to disguise your gift, or you could simply embellish the item with decorations instead; the possibilities are endless!
