RL Ideas: Practical Tips for Wrapping Gifts

Find out how to prepare presents that are almost too pretty to unwrap

Shares

Before you get started, here are a few gift wrapping reminders:

  1. Before Christmas hits, make a gift-wrapping kit. Store rolls of wrapping paper in a clean waste bin; assemble scissors, tape, etc. in a basket.
  2. Keep it simple by sticking to two wrapper themes-one for adults, and one for kids. Jazz it up with different-colored ribbons. It will also look better when placed under your tree.
  3. Stick Post-it-Notes with the names of the recipients to identify gifts before adding tags. This will help avoid embarrassing mix-ups!
  4. Hit the stationery stores right after the holiday season-this is when everything Christmas-y goes on sale. Then save the wrappers for next year.
