Now that Halloween and Bonfire Night are out of the way, all eyes have inevitably turned to Christmas, which now feels like it's fast approaching.
And if you're the type of person to start their Christmas shopping early, you might want to check out a nifty gift wrapping hack to make sure that even the most awkwardly-shaped items look perfect under the tree.
God bless the internet, right?
“Yeah it’s easy to wrap things shaped as a box, wrap something difficult,” she said on one of her posts a while back.
Tracie took on the challenge and decided to wrap an electric whisk after taking it out of its box.
She used a piece of cardboard, tape, scissors and, you guessed it, wrapping paper to show how quick it can be to wrap.
Tracie begins by placing the electric whisk on the piece of cardboard and cutting a piece to that matches the size of the base of the appliance.
She then uses this piece of cardboard to measure and cut how much wrapping paper she needs.
The next step sees Tracie fold the ends of the wrapping paper to the centre and taping the ends in place to create what looks like a sleeve, before folding the bottom half up.
She then folds the corners and tapes the bottom part of the sleeve to create a flat bottom for the electric whisk to sit on top of the piece of cardboard from earlier.
For the final step, Tracie places the electric sleeve inside the wrapping paper and folds and tapes the corners and the top opening.
Voila! A perfectly wrapped electric whisk.
TikTok users were impressed with Tracie’s wrapping, with one commenting: “Oh my God what I am so impressed haha.”
Another confessed: “I spend hours watching these then still wrap like a five-year-old.”
Someone else gushed: "Why is she a genius."
A fourth commenter joked: “Me watching a present being wrapped on TikTok instead of wrapping my own presents."
“You’re a gift wrapping hero and I’m jealous,” said one TikToker. “I’m also just gonna buy a cute gift bag with tissue paper cause I’m lazy.”
Even though lots of people loved Tracie’s tips, others still weren’t fond with the idea of wrapping gifts.
“I just don’t have the patience,” one user admitted. “Get somebody else to do it.”
