Christmas is a time for giving but sometimes it’s hard to figure out how to nicely wrap gifts before giving them to your loved ones.

Thankfully, a popular TikToker who shares a lot of household hacks on her social media has revealed how she ‘folds Christmas presents like a pro’.

Chantel Mila, who is known as Mama Mila shared a tutorial-style video where she folds a Christmas present like a professional, and it quickly went viral.

In the clip she films herself wrapping a brand new iPhone in gold paper.

To make the present look even more impressive she folded arrows into the top side of the gift which left many impressed.

“So simple but so beautiful, thank you for the demonstration,” one user commented.

Others requested the mum’s help with more complicated presents.

“Could you show me how to wrap a bucket and shovel nicely?” one mum asked.

With Christmas around the corner, more wrapping hacks are going to trend.

The account ’Effective Spaces’ already shared a video showing how to make a bow using a single ribbon and your fingers, which will come in handy this festive season.

It is usually really complicated to try and make a bow but the DIY video makes it seem easy to master after a few tries.

In the clip, Natasha who runs the account on TikTok began by lining the red ribbon over her two forefingers, then using her other hand she wrapped it between her fingers three times.

Next, the longer end of the ribbon was tucked through the small opening between the middle of the two fingers and looped around itself.

After gently pulling the ribbon down to tighten the centre, she slid it off the fingers forming the sides of the bow.

The second strand was then pulled down to meet the first strand and just like that the perfect small bow was formed.

“I love these as decorations, for table arrangements and Christmas trees (a larger version perhaps!) yet personally I would avoid using them on gifts as you need to stick them on,” Natasha captioned the post.

The simple DIY is the perfect alternative to buying expensive decorative bows.
