The classic sock wrap

Step 1: Cut out a section of wrapping paper big enough to fit around the socks and place the socks lengthways in the paper.

Step 2: Fold the outer sides in on the socks so the paper fits snugly around them and secure with a piece of tape.

Step 3: Fold each of the open ends inwards and up to seal, and secure with tape.

Step 4: Decorate with ribbon and bows if you like. Run a length of ribbon down the middle of the present lengthways, loop around the back, twist in the middle and bring the ribbon around the sides so you've created a cross shape. Tie into a bow, or secure with tape and add a bow.

Use this method to wrap multiple pairs too. Either place them side by side in a larger piece of paper, or pile them up.
