Beautiful gift wrapping does more than conceal its contents: it’s another way of showing the recipient that they are special to you. It also heightens their anticipation to open their gift. Give them some eye candy and they’ll be dying to know what’s inside the pretty packaging!
There are lots of little tricks to papering the perfect present, but the real secret is in measuring the paper properly. Lack of excess paper makes the wrapping easier to handle and produces neatly folded ends, which give your gifts an elegant look. Get this part right and you’ll tackle the mountain of gifts at holiday time – and for birthdays, showers, and weddings – with carefree aplomb.
