This Gift Wrapping Hack Is Perfect for Oddly Shaped Gifts

A woman wraps a stuffed animal in gift wrap.

Not all of us can be savvy gift wrappers—particularly when it comes to oddly shaped presents. Thankfully, though, there’s a hack for it.

Content creator Lindsay Buck has a hack for wrapping unusually shaped gifts, and it’s basically genius.

In the video, Buck attempts to wrap a moose stuffed animal to no avail. Then, she moves into her trick. To do so, she folds a sheet of wrapping paper into thirds and tapes them in place. Fold up the bottom and separate the two sections flattening them to form a diamond. Next, fold the top and bottom corners of the diamond toward the middle and tape. Slip your item into the open top of the bag and fold it shut taping it in place. Finally, hole punch two holes into the top, string a ribbon through, and you’ve got a perfectly wrapped gift.
