Once you have the perfect gift picked out, it’s time to wrap things up with some perfect packaging! Wrapping presents can be tricky, but these present wrapping hacks will make sure your gifts shine the brightest under the tree. Here are some gift wrapping hacks that will put a bow on your holiday season! 

1. Use an empty Pringles can as a cookie container

An empty Pringles can is the perfect container for some festive holiday treats! Roll up a piece of wrapping paper over the can, so that it covers the entire object. Then, tie a sliver of ribbon to the top and bottom of the can to secure the design. Place cookies, truffles or any other small dessert in the can, and top with a festive bow! 

2. Create a small gift box using a toilet paper roll

If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly box to store a small gift, you should “roll” with this clever hack. Take an empty toilet paper roll, place your item inside, and push down the sides so that they fold into the roll. Use some colorful twine or ribbon to tie a bow around your box, then add any small decorations that you desire. 

3. Wrap your presents diagonally 

Forget everything you know about wrapping gifts, and prepare to be blown away! Instead of stationing your wrapping paper horizontally under your gift, lay it out on a diagonal angle instead. Fold the bottom left corner and the top left corner towards the center so that they overlap over the gift, then fold the two remaining corners over the gift. 

4. Wrap a circular gift using one piece of wrapping paper

Place your round gift in the center of a long piece of wrapping paper, then fold up the edges of the paper so they surround the gift. Next, cut slits in the extended section of the paper, and fold the slits over the center of the top of the gift until it’s covered. Place a bow in the center to keep everything in place!
