Endlessly losing the scissors.

But sometimes when you have gone the extra mile for someone's Christmas gift you want the exterior to reflect what's inside.

If this is all you, take some tips from a Christmas wrapping pro.

Once you’ve tied the wrapping paper around your gift you can bend her strip around the circle at both the top and bottom of your gift.

If you wish you can add a little bow on top for decoration.

But the account user hasn’t stopped there. 

Many of us have come across much more difficult shaped gifts to wrap. 

To show you can wrap just about anything the account user shared a video of them wrapping a fish toy.

First they measure the width, length and height of the gift in wrapping paper with room to spare.

Then fold one side of the paper so it creates a box style base. 

For the top roll the paper over a few times and punch to holes in the roll and pull through some string. 

This string can be tied to create a bow and a handle. 

This way your gift is wrapped, secure and no one will be able to tell what is until they open it.
