Christmas Present Wrapping!

Hey guys, 

Today is a very festive post, to be honest, probably the most that you'll get out of me! I was wrapping up the last of my family's gifts the other day and wanted to document it for you all, hopefully to give you tips or inspiration on wrapping your own.

 Of course no session was complete without my trusted green tea, not festive but addictive.

 My essentials are scissors(big ones), sellotape with the sharp thingie to cut it and of course paper.

 I started with a beauty gift set for my mum, which was simple as it was a rectangular shape so figuring out measurements was easy. After wrapping them nicely I added some extra details to jazz them up, as effort counts. 

 I have a box under my bed full of things for such occassions, mostly paper and ribbons.

 This is the gift, one of my best this year if I do say so myself. I added a cute red ribbon to go with the theme and a label saying 'To Mum'. I just cut up hard printer paper as it's pointless buying labels. Tip:  To jazz up a ribbon, 'brush' them with the edge of the scissors (carefully!)

 Here they are, looking lovely if I do say so myself. The shiny pink bag is for my mum and holds some products which I couldn't really wrap. Adding tissue paper makes it look impressive with minimal effort.

Happy holidays! Let me know in the comments how you wrapped your gifts this year.
