Holiday Gift Wrapping 101

If one of the best parts of the holidays is unwrapping a pile of gifts with your name on them, one of the most stressful has to be wrapping a pile of packages for everyone on your gift list. We break down our tried and true wrapping method into a few simple key steps. Follow them for crisp edges and festive flair. Keep in mind that a little bit of tape goes a long way when used strategically! And if you’re facing a pile of boxes or a couple oddly shaped packages, hire a Tasker to help with the wrapping. 

Lay Package Face Down

Cut & Measure Paper

You’ll want a piece that wraps all the way around the long end of the package, with an inch or so overlap. The shorter ends should come up halfway on the sides. 

Fold & Tape Sides

After taping the long side, fold the short ends of the gift by pinching two parallel edges toward the center. This creates two triangles from the opposite sides. Fold the triangles toward each other, and tape them down.

Add Flair

Make your present stand out with festive ribbon or DIY tulle bow.

Whether you’re facing a pile of unwrapped gifts or a bare tree, book a Tasker for help with all your holiday to-dos.
