The decorations are in place. The presents are purchased – well, almost. Next up? The glorious stage of wrapping. For some of us, that’s the not-so-fun part. But for our Assistant Stylist, Emma L.? It’s a beloved holiday task. She even asks other people if they need any help wrapping theirs. (I’m totally taking her up on it.)

If you’re lacking talent in the wrapping department, here are some of Emma’s tricks to adding a bit more personality to any present, even if you usually default to the gift bag.

One of our favorite things about the holidays? Getting creative with our wrapping. Whether it’s with fun paper, metallic bows, or some classic twine, personalizing your wrapping – or your Rue boxes – is one of the best parts of the gift-giving season.

In honor of holiday creativity (and those exceptionally skilled at wrapping presents), we want to see your best-dressed Rue gifts! Send us a photo of the wrapped gifts you’re giving with the hashtag #VeryRueGift – you can leave them here in the comments, tweet us at @RueLaLa, post them to our Facebook wall, or even tag us on Instagram. We’ll share an album of our favorite ones after December 25.

So go ahead – prove you know just as much about wrapping gifts as you do buying them.
