You found the gift. Now it's time for the gift wrapping. There's no time like the present...
Practice origami. This Japanese method is a game-changer when it comes to saving time and money. It only takes 15-seconds to wrap, and two – count ‘em, two – pieces of tape. Goes a little something like:
Put away the paper. Buy holiday-themed kitchen towels or napkins and use cloth to wrap your presents. Place your gift in the center and gather up all edges. Hint: like you’re gathering your hair into a ponytail. Tie a rubber band around the cloth pony and hide it with ribbon.
Make your present smell sweet. Tie twine around your gift, and use a sprig of greenery (like rosemary) in lieu of a bow.
The more, the merrier. Cut them into gift tags, tape them down as bows, use them to jazz up your holiday envelopes, or stuff them into the bottom of your stockings so they look full.
Claus for celebration. Embrace it and run your wrap through a paper shredder (or cut into strips) to use as gift bag stuffers. You could also crumple and stuff it into shipping boxes as festive padding.
