At the tender age of 16 I worked during Christmas at Penhaligons shops in Mayfair, Burlington Arcade, Covent Garden and Kensington. With the flurry of rich people barking perfume orders at me, I became a dab hand at wrapping gifts without even having to look at my hands.
I was trained during the summer by a wonderful French lady who used to open the storeroom door to fart into. Quite the character and rather considerate too.
By Christmas I could gift wrap a cat.
Since then, each and every year I’ve used my skills to create awe inspiring wrapping, my favourite moment is when they realise there’s no tape – such glee in their eyes.
So I’ve decided to impart my wisdom to you with a step by step guide to professional wrapping.
- Keep it simple
- No tape
- Use elbows when necessary
