How to upgrade your gift wrapping skills this holiday season

You did it!

You found the perfect gift for everyone on your list this holiday season. We know that is no easy feat!

Now that you’re done scouring the web and fighting with fellow shoppers at the mall, all that stands between you and holiday bliss is the dreaded process of gift wrapping.

A task that is much easier said than done. But we’re here to help!

You’ll be a Martha Stewart-level gift wrapper after you read these 5 tips.

1. Don’t wait until the last minute

Procrastination is your worst enemy when it come to gift wrapping. Set aside a couple of hours to get all your wrapping done at once. You can even make an evening out of it—order some pizza, stream a holiday movie, and get to work. You’ll be amazed at how much your wrapping skills will improve when you aren’t trying to do it all last minute.

2. Organize your supplies

Plastic bin organizers are your friend. Keep all of your wrapping supplies safe in a container. This way you won’t waste money buying new supplies every year. Make sure you have all the basics in one place like scissors, tape, and bows. You’ll save so much time by not having to search all over the house to find what you need to get your holiday wrapping done.

Do your scissors end up everywhere but where you last had them? Hook a TrackR pixel to the handle so you can find them in a flash!

3. Stick with a theme

One easy way to take your gift wrapping skills to the next level is to pick a theme. Choose a matching color palette or decorative elements that tie together all of your gifts this holiday season. Your gifts will have a signature look that shows your loved ones you really care. And the best part is you’ll save more money by buying fewer supplies!

4. Try going eco-friendly

Did you know 4 million pounds of wrapping paper is used each year in the United States alone? That’s enough to cover 5,787 NFL-sized football fields!

It may feel a little wasteful to purchase wrapping paper that just ends up in a landfill. With a little creativity, you can create beautiful presents using recycled items like paper shopping bags, newspapers (stick to the funny pages!), or reusable fabric.

5. Upgrade your ribbons and bows

Basic ribbon just isn’t going to cut it anymore. Live foliage will give your presents that special holiday magic. You can also try customized gift tags to delight your loved ones.

If you really want to take it to the next level – you can turn the holidays into a fun scavenger hunt! Hide some presents around the house with a TrackR pixel attached. You can ring the presents and your loved ones can listen for the pixel to ring and find their gift. And the LED lights on the pixel will help them spot the gift in the dark.
