If you love giving gifts but aren't so sure about your gift wrapping abilities, you're in luck because wrapping beautiful Christmas presents is simple if you follow some straightforward tips.

4 wrapping tips for Christmas gifts

1. Use matte tape

When wrapping presents for Christmas, use matte tape for a modern look.

  • The matte finish of the tape makes it nearly invisible on wrapping paper to give gifts a sleek and professional appeal.
  • You may also want to have double-sided tape on hand for hard-to-handle spots like corners or uneven edges.

2. Use colour-coding

In order to assign presents to their designated recipient, wrap each of the presents in a colour that you easily associate with them.

  • Perhaps you can use their favourite colour or a pattern that reminds you of their personality.
  • This is an easy way to organize gift giving and it also makes for a beautiful display under a Christmas tree.

2. Accessorize

Make sure to have bows, ribbons and other miscellaneous wrapping accessories on hand when wrapping Christmas presents.

  • Not only are accessories a great way to make gifts look more festive for the holiday, they're also a way to cover up imperfections like jagged edges, visible tape or tears in the paper.
  • Taping a card onto a gift is essential to ensure that recipients know who gifts are for and who they're from.

4. Have a smaller companion to large presents

If you have bought a present that is too large to wrap in a package, get a smaller companion present to wrap that can lead to the larger present.

  • For example, if you've gotten someone a car, wrap a small model toy car or the car keys.
  • You can also build anticipation by including a note with hints leading the recipient to the real version of the present.

Waking up on Christmas morning is often the most exciting time of the year, and it's possible to make it even more festive through creative present wrapping.

Spend a little time focusing on how you wrap your presents and not only will you convince your little ones that Santa has arrived, but you'll create beautiful Christmas decor for the holiday season.
