Gift wrapping is one of those tasks that requires much more expertise than you might assume. If you find yourself in a stressful mess of wrapping paper and tape come holiday season, we’re here to help. On today’s episode of The Marc and Mandy ShowMandy shares creative tips for wrapping difficult gifts. 


How to wrap: Open-faced boxes & Egg-shaped gifts 

The solution: Take a large section of wrapping paper, cut into the shape of a square or rectangle. (The shape and size of your wrapping paper will depend on the shape and size of your gift.) Next, place your present in the center of the your paper, gather it up at the top of your present, and secure it with a silk bow. You can then add a unique touch with a decorative accessory.  


How to wrap: Wine bottles 

The solution: If you want to avoid wrapping with wrapping paper completely, look no further than Four Season Giftbag Company. Four Season Giftbags come in a variety of colors and sizes and are ultra easy to use and accessorize.  


How to wrap: Odd-shaped gifts 

The solution: If you do want to go the wrapping route, but you’re dealing with an odd-shaped present, popping your gift into a standard sized box is the way to go. To give your present a bit of a unique edge, you’ll only need paper, scissors, tape, glue, and a little bit of creativity. To turn your present into a whimsical woodland creature, simply wrap it with brown paper, cut animal features out of construction paper, and paste the features directly onto the paper-covered box.
