Gift wrapping, love it or hate it. It is a traditional task that we are compelled to tackle when giving gifts. At Christmas time the task is at its peak, as the work load multiplies by the number of gifts that we plan to give, and by the increasing expectation to produce a 'designer' style gift wrap, worthy of a magazine editorial.
Most retailers offer a gift wrapping service at Christmas time, a blessing for those who are time poor or who feel that they lack the finesse to complete the job themselves.
However, with a little technical know how, a dash of design inspiration and some positive thinking, you can create some show stopping results yourself; rivaling the work of entertaining experts, Carolyne Roehm and Martha Stewart!
Here are some of my wrapping favourites, that have inspired me over the last twelve months.
