Wrapping gifts can seem like a chore to even the most festive of elves. For me, it’s more like a passion project. This is doubly true ever since I discovered eco-conscious and uber-cute designs from Wrappily. Wrappily produces recyclable and reversible wrapping paper, which means I can continue enjoying the packaging process without stressing over unnecessary waste. Unlike most options, Wrappily’s products skip the usual layers of sealant and sparkles that make other “paper” brands impossible to recycle. The environmental advantage doesn’t mean Wrappily’s designs are any less festive, though. For the second year in a row, my presents are wrapped in adorable dinosaurs sporting Santa hats and chic llamas draped in holiday scarves.
Viral gift wrapping hacks for this holiday season – New York Post
A lot of work goes into wrapping gifts in fancy paper that people are just going to rip off anyway. Wrapping gifts is an essential part of celebrating Christmas. There’s nothing more special than coming down on Christmas morning and finding a bunch of presents under the tree. Unfortunately, getting those gifts all nicely wrapped can be a lot more work than people realize. Thankfully, social media users are sharing their various gift wrapping hacks online. Whether they involve secret techniques for oddly shaped gifts or showing off unique gadgets that help make the process easier, these tips will help make the holidays a lot less stressful. Lindsay Roggenbuck shared a video on her page that shows how to wrap an oddly shaped gift. Instead of trying to fit the paper around a stuffed animal, she instead folds the wrapping paper into a small bag. Then she simply puts the toy in the bag and tapes the top shut.
Neatly wrapping a tube-shaped gift can also give a lot of people trouble. Lennia, the “folding queen,” showed a trick for making the ends look nice and neat. After cutting the paper to size with the tube, she then cuts the ends into tabs. Then she just presses each individual tab down once the paper is wrapped around the tube, giving it a nice clean edge. The TikTok page Make Life Simpler showed off a method for folding paper in a way that doesn’t require any tape. This is a good skill to learn because everyone’s had that moment where they run out of tape halfway through wrapping gifts.
