Christmas Wrapping with M&S & Great Ormond Street Hospital
So I wanted to do something a little different on the run up to Christmas this year. Not your usual gift guide per say, but maybe HOW to wrap the flipping gifts in the first place AND do something pretty good for charity at the same time. Enter Marks and Spencer, who gave me the opportunity to learn to wrap gifts like an adult, and not get stuck to myself with cello tape, and in the process, wrap piles of presents up for the children and families of Great Ormond Street Hospital. For those of you that don't know, I'm a Physiotherapist. A Physiotherapist that loves children and the elderly. I've worked with poorly children, a lot. It's the hardest thing I've had to do in my career and being able to do something that I know can make them happier for just one day, is pretty cool.
Here we go! Naturally, I chose a fancy chemise from the Rosie for Autograph collection to wrap up, because who doesn't want to feel like Rosie Huntington Whitely at Christmas? or every day? Exactly.
I'm not going to lie to you and tell you that I found this easy. In all honesty, it took me a few attempts but, I think I have perfected it. Wrapping can be tedious at best, especially when you've got easy, flat things to wrap. I tried to get a little bit creative here so please do give it a go!
A couple of points to help you out….
-Keep your lines straight, fold them over, nobody likes a jagged edge! -Be creative! adorn your wrapping with golds, silvers and fancy tapes -You don't just have to use cello tape to stick things on, try gold bulldog clips for a change
