Gift Wrap Hack

If you’ve got a mountain of presents to wrap here’s how a professional wrapper from Japan’s Takashimaya department store gets it done in less than 15 secs. And you can too!

Not convinced it’s that easy? Then check out the video below where the diagonal wrapping technique has been slowed right down so we can all test it out.

Christmas wrapping just became a whole lot easier!
