Wrapping unusually shaped gifts

Not all gifts come in the perfectly formed box, leaving many of us at a loss when it comes to wrapping them.

Especially when it comes to children’s toys, packaging awkwardly shaped GIFs can be a bit of a challenge.

To make life easier, Jo explained: “A great way to wrap unusual shapes like bottles or tubes of candy is with tissue and cellophane by gathering the tissue, folding it up and tying it with a ribbon.”

She also said larger gifts can be challenging, as she added, “Depending on the size, this usually means I tape several sheets of paper together to make it the size of the gift.”

Fastest gift wrapping method

According to Jo, preparation is key to wrapping gifts quickly.

Jo explained that it is important that you are well prepared before you start packing.

She said: “By cutting your paper to the right size from the start, wrapping becomes less of a chore and you save yourself fumbling halfway through cutting around edges.”

But when time is really tight, she says, a simple gift bag is the way to go.

If you are looking for something cheaper and more environmentally friendly, Jo has a top tip for you.

Jo suggested using old newspaper and twine as a simple but effective alternative to gift wrapping.

As another alternative, she said, “Baskets were very popular.”

To make your basket presentable, she suggested using “torn paper to place the gift and ribbon to complete it.”

She also revealed, “Charity stores are a great place to find these baskets at a reasonable price.”

Creative ways to wrap a gift

Jo likes to spice things up when she wraps her presents using the “Japanese folding method”.

She explained, “This consists of folding the paper over itself a few times, untangling it, and then folding it back over on itself.”

She also suggested adding fun, creative accessories, such as: “bells, feathers, cinnamon sticks, tinsel from the tree, and different types of ribbons like lace or wire ribbon.”
