With Christmas just 13 days away, this how-to video will surely come in handy. This new, fun, and shockingly easy way to wrap gifts was created by Sara Santos of the Royal Institution as shown on BBC’s The One Show.

For years, whenever Christmas or a birthday came around, I’d just assume I was a master at wrapping gifts – then half a roll of tape later, I realize I’m not. That’s why I was so happy and thankful when I stumbled across this video. My jaw literally dropped when I saw this ultra-simplistic way to quickly wrap square, and rectangle gifts.

With some kind of gift wrapping, mathematical paper formula, this updated version will be the only way I wrap gifts from now on. I’ve tried it already with a shoebox and I absolutely love it.

Be sure to watch this video, as it will save you time, energy, and frustration this Christmas season – or any gift wrapping situation. You’ll thank me later.
