It happens every. Single. Year. I buy that one gift that turns out to be an absolute bear to wrap! And if you’re like me and saved your present wrapping until the very last minute, this technique for wrapping that one odd-shaped gifts is an absolute lifesaver. The only extra material required is a bit of ribbon to finish off the ends with! So here’s my number one holiday hack, how to wrap those non-rectangular gifts:

This technique works best with round objects but you can really do this with any gift, provided it’s not too pointy on its sides.

I cut a square piece of wrapping tissue, and starting with the gift in one corner and rolled up until all of the tissue paper was rolled! Make sure to wrap it tightly because this keep the appearance neat and tidy. I used double sided tape to secure the paper in place.

All that’s left to do is to close up the ends by lightly gathering and twisting them, and using ribbon to secure it into place. Just like a Christmas cracker!

A few tips: use a tissue paper that has a pattern on it, this better conceals your gift inside. Also, I used metallic twine to secure my ends which I highly recommend because it’s not nearly as thick or slippery as ribbon would be.

I highly recommend double sided tape for gift wrapping in general – no more unsightly tape marks on my gifts!
