Mum shares her genius go-to Christmas wrapping trick to save money during the festive season

With Christmas only five weeks away, a clever Australian mum has revealed a ‘genius’ trick she uses when wrapping presents for loved ones.  

Peta, from Queensland, said she uses individual lettered stamps to personalise the wrapping and write out the names of the person receiving the gift. 

‘There’s something magical about wrapping presents [and] the contentment when they’re done,’ she wrote on Facebook and shared a image. 

The simple idea saves money on purchasing expensive fancy wrapping paper and Christmas cards.

Peta bought the lettered stamp set from her local budget shop for $2 and purchased the brown wrapping paper from Kmart. 

Once the gifts had been wrapped and stamped, she also added ribbons and bows for a touch of colour to the simple style. 

‘Next year I’ll be ordering full name custom stamps,’ she said.

Other parents on social media praised the simple but clever idea and admired the lettering.

‘I love the writing of the names!’ one person said.  

‘It looks beautiful, well done,’ another said, and a third added: ‘I used plain brown paper last night to do my daughters birthday presents – it’s so nice!’

This isn’t the first creative Christmas idea that has been shared on social media; earlier this month Flavia, from Brisbane, made a chimney for her two children using cardboard boxes and brick wrapping paper from Kmart. 

Flavia said she only used one packet of the $7 wrapping paper and had excess leftover in case she needed more

‘Decorations ready in our home Christmas wonderland,’ she wrote online and posted images to the Kmart Hacks & Décor Facebook group.

Flavia’s two children enjoyed the new festive chimney, which was positioned next to the Christmas tree and decorated with lights, tinsel and snow globes on top.  

The social media post received more than 2,300 ‘likes’ and 640 comments from other parents who praised the creative home project.
