Here's how to wrap Christmas presents without any tape (yes, really)

*Throws tape away...*

I think we've all had our run ins with sticky tape while wrapping presents at Christmas.

Whether it's getting stuck to your fingers instead of to the wrapping paper or simply running out of it when you only have one part left to stick, wrapping presents can be a pain.

Aside from occasionally being a lot of hassle, it's a lot easier to recycle certain wrapping papers if you don't use tape as the tape itself can't be recycled.

I'm always on the look out for ways that I can be more sustainable and hey, the more time I can save myself some time wrapping gifts, the better.

If you're on the same wave length then you have got to watch this Japan Gift Wrap Hack - that requires no tape or ribbon.

I know what you're thinking, why didn't we know this sooner?

The good news is that because Christmas is still over a week away there's still time to practice your new no tape skills on any gifts you haven't wrapped yet.

I actually haven't wrapped any of my presents yet so I'm going to get loads of practice in. No judgement.

If you do try this hack let us know how you got on @herdotie or in the comments below.
