Day 5 ~ Wrapping the Perfect Gift

I am going to start Day 5 by clarifying that wrapping the gifts is my most dreaded task. My Sister is a Christmas-aholic. She decorates her home in classic christmas colours, she cooks the perfect meal and she wraps the worlds MOST beautiful gifts. I will admit that she is better at Christmas than I am. It’s the cooking and wrapping that puts her first; year after year.  In return she expects the same attention to detail when we wrap her gifts. This year I have vowed to join the race for the most beautifully wrapped gifts under the tree. Here are my favourite wrapping ideas and tips accompanied by photos from Pinterest~

My all time favourite gift wrapping memory is from when I was a teenager. My cousin delivered a gift to a family member inside a hockey helmut and then duck taped it to enclose the opening. Ever since my wrapping standards have been fairly low! This year I am turning over a new leaf! 

Happy wrapping!
