Wrap Your Christmas Gifts In Under 12 Seconds

Are you tired of taking hours to wrap all of your Christmas presents for friends and family? This video from Japan’s Takashimaya Department shows how an employee, using a few tricks, is able to wrap a gift in just under 12 seconds. Spending just 12 seconds on each present means you could be done with all of your presents in a couple of minutes.

Have a look at the video:

Next time you wrap your presents, make sure that the paper is roughly the right size for the gift, avoid trimming the edges and trying to get the pattern to line up, work with the corners of the wrapping paper sheet along the edges of the gift’s box and you’ll have a much easier and quicker wrapping experience.

With this tip, obviously preparation is key. You need to have your tape on a suitable tape dispenser or pre-cut and lined up on the table’s edge.  In addition to this, pre-cut sheets of your wrapping paper into roughly the correct size. It helps to arrange your gifts into a small, medium and large pile and then cut sheets to suit each pile size. Keep irregular or difficult objects for last as there is no shortcut for them.
