The Joy of Giving: WIN a John Lewis Fabric Gift Wrap Bundle

This Competition is now closed.

I am really thrilled to be hosting this gorgeous John Lewis Fabric Gift Wrap Giveaway this week, as we hurtle towards December, Christmas, gift purchasing and the ultimate wrapping.

In our home, I buy the gifts and the man of the house wraps them. I think that’s a pretty good deal actually. I love shopping; he loves wrapping! I’m really not that good at the wrapping, probably don’t have enough patience, and I’m just not attentive enough. He’s meticulous with it and spends evenings getting it just right. If, like me, wrapping isn’t really your thing, or your wrapping skills could do with a brush up, then I’m sure you’ll love this  helpful video with lots of tips and advice on gift wrapping:

Isn’t that just fabulous?

    Always the night before in a hurry 😉 You see, I’m Spanish, shops in Spain always (beautifully) wrap items for you any time of hte year, in fact they ask if you want it gift wrapped when you get to the till. At Christmas time stores pull out all the stops, with trademark paper, ornaments, labels… it’s amazing. So this whole DIY wrapping was a shock to the system for me as, except for any homemade gifts, I never really had to wrap presents.

  2. November 26, 2012 / 9:51 am

    I’m all RSSd up 🙂

    ~I try and do them as I go along but it all depends who’s in and who’s out at the time.

  4. November 26, 2012 / 10:02 am

    In my head they are all wrapped on the 30th November, in reality Christmas eve with wine, chocolate and telly. I like your system, I have no patience for it either!

    I would like it to be different but it is generally the day before they need to be given! But I LOVE wrapping, love love love it!

    After I have bought them all so they are ready to be delivered and there’s no chance of naughty eyes snooping!

  10. November 26, 2012 / 10:54 am

    1/2 in advance then last minute frenzy with the rest

    I try to wrap my presents as soon as I have bought them, but this year with having a one year old running around, I just havnt had the chance. I think it could be Christmas Eve in a rush this time around. EEEK! I also run out of wrapping paper or tape when I’m down to my last few. Note to self – buy an extra roll of tape! 🙂

  12. Miriam
    November 26, 2012 / 11:09 am

    I tend to wrap most of them on Christmas Eve/early hours Christmas morning. Every year I say NEVER AGAIN!!! However, to date, I have not achieved the festive domestic goddess status I aspire too! 😀

    I wrap most as I buy but with so many gifts to get my only resolution is that everything will be wrapped by the last day of November- and yes, this year, they are all done.

  16. ashleigh

  19. nikki hilton

  22. Helen Moulden

    I love being organised so I’ve already wrapped my presents! I normally do it about 5-6 weeks before Christmas, and I spend ages making the perfect little bows etc.!

  23. November 26, 2012 / 4:47 pm

    I try and wrap in advance but this year I think I will be up wrapping into the small hours of Christmas day, I feel very disorganised!

  24. Tracy Newton
    November 26, 2012 / 5:39 pm

    I wrap mine the day I buy them. Then I am just spending the odd half hour here and there, rather than spending a whole weekend.

    I hate doing things last minuet.

    I try to take a few minutes during the day, with a cup of tea, while my children are at school to wrap presents as I buy them. Must label as I go along, as one year I did not and could not remember what was inside so I had to rewrap a few!

  40. Melanie Dye
    November 27, 2012 / 7:42 am

    I spread it out from about the end of November onwards, but I don’t start to wrap anyone’s gifts until I’ve bought everything I’m going to get for them.

    My husband and I wrap the pile of presents about 1 week before the big day with red wine for him and bubbles for me, rubbish on the Television and possibly some nibbles to stave of fatigue as that makes the whole thing go along in a Christmas to come kinda way!

    Until Christmas Eve I always leave the wrapping of each gift
    I know it’s late but that’s my date
    Though some find it hard to believe
    A glass of mulled wine with a mince pie or two
    I’ll tie, stick and fold all night
    As long as they are ready before 1.am Christmas wil be just right!

    I try and set an evening aside as soon as we’ve bought them all, so we can do it all in one go. However, we usually end up doing it all the night before, because we’re so busy and don’t get round to it!

    I always wrap my christmas presents during the last week before, while the kids are still at school. I sit by the fire with everything surrounding me and usually end up completely stressed. I am dreading this year with 2, 7 month old puppies trying to help me, its going to be carnage xxxx

    When everyone is sleeping and only I am not,
    With presents, tags and paper, I kneel there, feeling hot
    And bothered, wishing I had sensibly stepped it up a gear
    And promising myself that I’ll be better organised next year!

    Christmas is nealy here, so planing to wrap them in time this year.
    Wrapping them nicley with ribbons and bows, some little ones with hidden confetti, good for a giggle you know!
    All will be made special each in their own way,
    as the wrapping reflects all your love and the effect you made.

  124. james darrington

    I usually wrap my gifts about 3 days before Christmas. I like to buy everything before I start wrapping so I remember exactly what I have got!

    The week before Christmas, because on Christmas Eve I’m to far gone to wrap up presents, so we make sure they are done.

    I try to set aside the Sunday before Christmas to do my wrapping. But I usually find myself hurrying to do last minute wrapping right up until Christmas Eve.

    They get done as soon as I’ve got all of the presents boughts. Do it all at once!

    I normally wrap mine about a week before Christmas but it’s by far my favourite part of the whole present buying/giving experience. I love wrapping gifts and making them look beautiful x

    Its the best part of Christmas for me! Me and my gorgeous lady wife watch our favourite film Home Alone 2, I make the Snowballs ( egg-nog) we get a whole host of Christmas chocolate and we sit sometimes until the early hours with nothing but the light of the Christmas tree….wrapping pressies for four kiddies! Its so magical and I work hard all year round just for that one moment in time with my wife! 🙂

    I do a few bits early, but most of the presents are wrapped on 23rd December and then hidden until Christmas Day. Any earlier and my young boys would find them. Wrapping presents on Christmas Eve always takes longer than I think and I end up tired and grouchy on Christmas Day, so…23rd December it is.

  145. Yvonne Crook

    The week before for everyone but the kids – kids are done xmas eve when they’re fast asleep and I’ve done a trip to my mum’s to retrieve where I’ve hidden them!

  147. Sarah Evans
    December 2, 2012 / 9:13 am

    I try to set aside a whole afternoon and spread everything out on the dining table. Add some Chrismassy music and I’m away!

    I wrap my presents usually just in time for the beginning of December so I can pop them under the tree. My little one is usually so excited (along with me) that we want our tree up as soon as it’s December and a tree needs presents!
