#Giftwell Tip: Wrap Your Present In Denim

Lose the crinkly edges, visible tape and sad ribbons for good. We’ve got a no-fuss way to give two gifts in one, courtesy of Team Madewell’s wrapper extraordinaire and overall creative connoisseur, Hannah. Her pro tip? Swaddle smaller gifts in a chambray shirt. She teaches us this crowd-pleasing trick in five easy steps.

Step 1: Lay the shirt on a flat surface, button-side down, and set your gift right in the middle.

Step 2: Fold the bottom half of the shirt up to the center.

Step 3: Fold the top half of the shirt so that the collar meets the bottom edge (let the sleeves hang for now).

Step 4: Flip the shirt over and cross the sleeves.

Step 5: Turn it over again so it’s collar-side up, then pull the sleeves forward and tie a neat little knot in front. Voilà (!).
