I struggle to wrap gifts. My whole life I have skipped the battle of wrapping paper and scotch tape and just tossed things in re-used gift bags. It saves my sanity, but it always looks horrible.

Not this year, this year I have Minnesota TikTok user Emily Carriveau to help me out.

Emily is a blogger that runs SmallTownMe.com, a site dedicated to Emily sharing her garage sale finds, fashion inspiration, and creative process. She is the kind of person that instantly puts a smile on your face when you see her content, and she is a gift wrapping queen.

Example A: Wrapping a chicken-themed gift in the shape of a chicken:
