How to Wrap a Gift Box
This easy method lets you measure, cut, and fold paper into a present that works for all gift-giving occasions.
Whether it's Christmas, a birthday, or a housewarming party, it's always a thoughtful gesture to present someone with a wrapped gift. Lidded paper gift boxes are a gift-wrapping go-to for a reason—they're not only polished, but they're also sturdy and make gift-wrapping a breeze. They hold up beautifully to being reused or repurposed around the house, which makes them a great sustainable gift-wrapping option. While they often require little more than a simple bow, covering them with gift wrap not only allows you to tailor the look for specific occasions, but can protect the box underneath so it will be beautiful and useful for years to come—be sure to wrap both lid and base separately so that it's easy to open and close.
