Week 9: Gift wrapping

Luke 2:10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. 13 Suddenly, a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.”

Christmas Day is around the corner; let’s start getting the gifts wrapped and placed under the tree to add to the celebration.

The greatest gift was wrapped in a swaddling cloth lying in a manger. The bible says in Luke 2:10-14 “10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly, a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.”

Wrapping presents can be an enjoyable time, especially when spent with family and friends. However, there are a few tips that can help make wrapping a little less stressful.

Firstly, try to get most of your gifts in boxes if possible. To save some money, I would collect empty tissue boxes, cereal boxes, shoe boxes and any other clean boxes that we could recycle. I then open the box into a flat piece, tear it at the joints. Next, flip the box and resemble the box. Next, turn it inside out so that the design is on the inside. Finally, put your gift in and wrap it as usual.

Next, have a wrapping station. I use a paper bag. You can use a container, basket or box—something to corral all the wrapping supplies together in one place. Having the wrappers, tape, scissors and ribbons all in one place makes it easy to carry to where you want to wrap the gifts, and you do not need to waste time finding the supplies. Have everything you need in one bin.

Another optional tip that can help with your decor aesthetic is to have a wrapping theme for the year. Having a theme or some colours in mind will help coordinate the gifts’ wrappers, ribbons, and embellishments—for example, classical themes which use red, green and gold. Neutral themes use colours such as brown, cream and green. There are also colour pallets that we can use to determine the style of the gifts. Theme or colour-coordinated styled gifts helps to elevate the look and give a perfect finish to the Christmas tree.

Last but not least, is to make wrapping presents as part of the Christmas activity. Turn on the music and light up the Christmas tree. Set the ambience and sit around to wrap the gifts together. No stress, just a time to do an activity together.

Remember that the best gifts cannot be wrapped or boxed. It is love, time together and celebrating the joy of giving. So let’s create happy memories with our friends and family this Christmas.
