Make Gift Wrapping Less of a Hassle

‘Tis the season for gift giving, so there’s no better time to talk about gift wrap. From choosing the right tape and paper to wrapping oddly shaped gifts and everything in between, your gifts will look amazing this year with the help of these creative gift wrapping solutions from Scotch®.

Equip Yourself with the Best Tape for the Job

Gone are the days of a single standard tape option to wrap your gifts. These days, there are several tape options from which to choose, but which tape is going to work best on your gift wrap? Standard tapes will get the job done, but you’ll be able to see the tape everywhere it is placed. Transparent tape is a better solution, keeping the tape more hidden from view and allowing your wrapping paper and other adornments to shine. Better still is gift wrapping tape. Specially designed to blend more seamlessly with shiny or glossy finish wrapping papers, Scotch® GiftWrap Tape holds firm and is nearly impossible to detect, keeping your packages as beautiful as you intend them to be. Other options include double-sided tape, which allows you to keep the tape completely hidden from view.

Create Your Own Gift Wrapping Station

You’ll be able to quickly and efficiently wrap all of your gifts if you have a dedicated space for gift wrapping in your home. Look for areas that will support the storage of your tools and supplies, while also possessing a flat space large enough to lay out your gifts and papers. Keep scissors and Scotch tape stocked and ready to go, and organize ribbons, papers, bows and other decorative additions to keep them easily accessible as you wrap.

Learn to Wrap Gifts of Any Shape or Size

Gifts Wrapped

It would be wonderful if all gifts were squares or rectangles, perfectly shaped for quick and easy wrapping, but alas, that is not the case. Oftentimes, gifts can be in shapes and sizes that are so off-the-wall, you’d think an engineering degree were required to wrap the gift properly. In reality, it’s easy to wrap any gift when you know the secrets of gift-wrapping experts.

  • Step 1: Always measure your paper around your gift prior to cutting to ensure your piece of wrapping paper is large enough to fully encompass the gift.
  • Step 2: Fold the wrapping paper carefully around unusual or awkward angles to ensure the paper is not under unnecessary pressure or strain.
  • Step 3: Place small cloth, cardboard or cushion wrap strips around sharp edges and corners to prevent the wrapping paper from ripping.
  • Step 4: Finally, trim excess paper and secure the ends firmly around the gift using a strong, durable tape.
