Do you need to wrap a gift box?
The wrapping paper should just cover the item being wrapped —any excess, especially at the short ends of the box, should be trimmed off. Otherwise, the wrapped gift will have bulges where the extra paper is folded up.
Choose a gift basket filler. Some examples include shredded newspaper, shredded tissue paper, Easter grass, large pieces of confetti, packing straw or colored foam balls. There is no right or wrong type of filler for a basket. Just choose something you like and/or that you feel matches the contents of the gift basket.
