Gift wrapping seems simple—at least until the final, ribbon-wrapped products look nothing like the crisply wrapped gifts in store windows and perfectly arranged Instagram shots. Even if you have the basics of gift wrapping down (here’s how to wrap a present, if not), there are little tweaks that turn wrapped gifts from ho-hum to photo-ready.

Alton DuLaney, the world’s most famous gift-wrap artist, knows all the gift wrapping tricks and strategies to getting that crisp, neat wrapped look—and he shared the common mistakes he sees people making. Avoid these pitfalls for presents that look professionally garnished, no matter what’s inside them.
