Whether it’s for a birthday or the holiday season, knowing how to wrap a gift properly can be a very useful skill. Especially in more formal settings like anniversaries, weddings, or baby showers, a well-wrapped gift can show how much you value and appreciate the recipient.
First, before you even begin to think of wrapping your gift, you’ll have to accumulate the required supplies. Some of the most important things to have on hand include:
• A box that your gift will fit in, especially if it was not already encased in some kind of packaging when you bought it
• Wrapping paper
• Gift bags
• Tags (either those that can be attached by string or adhesive)
Once you’ve gathered these requisite supplies, you’ll be prepared to wrap gifts whenever the need may arise. There are several other principles that you should keep in mind in order to ensure that the wrapping process goes as smoothly as possible. First, keep all of your supplies in one place, which will make it easier to find your supplies when gift-giving occasions arrive. Also, make sure to store your supplies in a low-traffic area, which will help prevent any of the wrapping paper or other materials from getting crushed, torn, or wrinkled. Also, ensure that the quantities of your supplies (notably the wrapping paper) are enough to adequately cover any gifts you plan to give, especially if one or more gifts are relatively large. Finally, make sure that you use more gentle supplies like bows or tape to fasten the wrapping, and not staples, glue, or other methods that may damage the packaging or make the gift difficult to unwrap.
