Christmas is coming and with it – gifts! Remember that, no matter what you give to your loved one, packing is very important. A well packed gift is the half-way to success. And today, we’ll tell you how to pack your gifts well and good looking?

1. Always pack your gifts using hard surface

If you’re packing your gift with paper, always do it on hard Surface. A carpet or bed are now are good idea, because you can easily fold the paper. It won’t look nice at all.

2. One-sided tape vs. Two-sided tape

It is very common to use one-sided tape to pack gifts, because it’s a must-have in almost every house. Obviously, that’s a practical and quick solution, but not actually elegant. That’s why it’s worth considering to use two-sided tape. Using this tape, you’ll make your gifts look professional and elegant. With a little bit of effort, the tape won’t be visible!

3. Decorative paper – not necessarily from a shop

Most of use decorative paper bought in a paper shop or hypermarket. Sometimes it’s worth thinking about alternative solutions to make our gifts more original and unique. A gift can be packet, for example, with an old nice-themed scarf, tied with a nice bow. Even packed in grey-paper, old map, newspaper or a shopping bag from a near shop, your gifts will look amazing when you activate your creativity. There’re lots of interesting ideas – just free your imagination!

4. Decorative ribbons alternatives

Decorative ribbons look cute on a gift and truly are the culmination of the effort that we’ve put in packing our unique gifts. Well, it’s also worth looking for original solutions! An interesting alternative for a traditional ribbon would be a piece of jute cord, which will be perfect combined with grey paper or black-white newspaper. Another alternative would be, for example, threading beads on a cord and tying a gift with them. Believe us, the final effect will be stunning!

5. DIY cards with a name

A unique card that contains the name of your loved one can be bought, but do we have to buy it? Of course not! We can prepare our cards by ourselves with a way better final effect ? All we need is some paper, but mostly willingness! Cut a card in a format that suits you and write the name of the addressee and decorate the card as you want!

6. Do not prepare your gifts at the last moment!

Never pack your gifts in the last moment. In current world, everyone is in hurry. However, haste is never a good advisor. If you’re a type of person who doesn't like packing gifts or admire simple and ready-to-use solutions, you can always buy a package and ask seller to pack your gift (some shops offer this only before Christmas).
