Woman Shares the Best Hack For Wrapping Presents This Christmas

Wrapping presents can be a stressful ordeal. You're trying to neatly fold, all the while juggling four fingers worth of cellotape and attempting to not pick up half your living room carpet with it.

Well fret no longer, as we have a hack to make your life that little bit easier this Christmas.

Shared on Facebook Group Extreme Budget & DIY Life Hacks by user Amanda Coulter, the hack tackles the most annoying task of all in wrapping: keeping the roll in place.

"I hate wrapping presents at the best of times. No more paper rolling back at you. A simple mop handle stops me from loosing my S**t," writes Amanda.

All you need to do is find yourself a mop handle and feed it though the wrapping paper roll. Next, just hold it in place between two chairs - possibly as part of a dining table - and voila! Your roll won't roll back at you.

Simple eh? And it seems as if fellow Facebook users appreciated the tip.

"Why wasn't this posted a few weeks ago. That would of saved me drinking 3 bottles of wine!!," said one person.

"My gripe was the bloody sellotape sticking to everything but the bloody parcel," shared another. "What a brilliant idea," raved a third.

"A hack to go with it is use glue dots instead of sellotape haha!" shared another as an extra tip.

"I just put the scissors there to hold it lol" advised another.

Genius. We know we'll be using this when it comes to wrapping presents. And if you're after a hack for hiding bauble strings on your Christmas tree, we have that too.

Cleaning pro Mrs Hinch shared the tip last year, but we're still using it.

For those annoying baubles strings that make the tree look a little messy, the influencer (real name Sophie Hinchcliffe) advises spraying the area with fake snow.
