Everybody loves receiving a gift that's beautifully wrapped. Attention to detail in the wrapping shows that the gift giver has taken the time and effort to make it as special as possible. It also makes the gift look incredibly tempting and intriguing. However, many people lack confidence when it comes to wrapping gifts, preferring to use an in-store wrapping service or even last-minute gift bags. Luckily, there are plenty of easy ways to make gifts look extra-special without spending too much money or having a degree in origami.


1. Use Double-Sided Tape

One secret that gift wrapping experts always swear by is to use double-sided sticky tape. There's nothing uglier than visible tape, especially if it's been allowed to gradually turn yellow in a drawer somewhere. The main advantage of double-sided tape is that it can be hidden from sight under the edges of the paper. Many brands are also much stronger than standard tape, so all that careful wrapping is less likely to unravel.
