 Start Wrapping Earlier
Say goodbye to Christmas chaos this year. Follow these simple gift-wrapping strategies to give family and friends one-of-a-kind packages this holiday.
Avoid a gift-wrapping time crunch and start wrapping gifts as you buy them. Add ribbons, bows, and tags later. Label presents with sticky notes so that you don't forget who gets what.



Use Double-Sided Tape
Indispensable for wrapping, double-sided tape stays put and out of sight.




Recycled Gift Wrap
Don't toss away all the wrapping paper and ribbon that once covered other gifts. Instead, run it through a shredder (cut to size first, if needed) and use it for lining gift boxes or bags.

Color-Coded Wrapping
Have a lot of gifts to give this year? Assign each family member a different color paper, and you won't even need gift tags. This is a fun way for everyone to identify his or her presents.



Kraft Paper Gift Wrap
Use kraft paper for an attractive yet sturdy wrapping. Once wrapped, add special trimmings and gift tags to your package.



Make Bows from Leftover Paper
Make oversized, elegant bows using extra bits of paper; no ribbons or costly trimmings are necessary.
