And if you're strapped for time, there's nothing more frustrating than going to grab a quick gift bag – only to realise you've run out.

Well, luckily for you Nikki, who posts under the very apt acronym @wrappinqueen, took to TikTok and posted a video where she explains how to create your own gift bag out of wrapping paper.

In the clip, the self-confessed wrapping whizz begins: "Christmas wrapping hack that you definitely didn't know.

"If you want to wrap an odd item like a teddy bear or a ball, you can actually make a gift bag out of wrapping paper."

She then explains: "You're going to take it, make sure you have enough to cover the whole item, top and bottom, tape it down and then at the bottom, about a quarter of the way down, you're going to fold up.

"Then, take the ends and fold them towards the middle.
