Gift wrapping is serious business, and cannot be taken for granted.

Whether you can't wrap a present to save your life or are the Wrap Queen of 2018, these cute 'n' chic ways to package your parcels this Christmas are the bomb.

Y'all are welcome, if you wrap gifts like these then you'll earn some MAJOR brownie points…

1.  The Car

All you need is brown paper, some string and a mini-tree (cut part of a bush and spray paint the tips white). Honestly this is just too adorable, the present outside of the gift is just as good as inside.

2. Animal style

Why give a regularly wrapped gift when you can create a zoo of animal presents with some coloured paper, googly eyes and markers.

3. The Colour-Me-In

Why give them store-bought wrapping paper when you could let their inner Picassos shine through?

So much paper is wasted when it comes to wrapping gifts, it would be lovely to create something artistic with the material.

4. The Music Sheet 

As Madonna once sang; "Music…makes the people…come together…yeah."

This applies for wrapping presents too, FYI. Try using music sheets to package your gifts, and you'll be the new musical diva of Christmas.

5. Santa Paws

This one is a slightly unusual tactic to take this festive season, but maybe it's worth a shot? Unless PETA hear about it…*winces*

Surprise a loved one with a wrapped up kitty kat this year, unless Santa Claws rips her way out first.

6. Marvel at the Marble

Some gold and paint on white paper mixed with watery dark tones can create a marble effect like MAGIC.

It's honestly looks so sophisticated, we can't even cope.

7. The Chalkboard

Get yourself some black wrapping paper and white makers to create the chalkboard effect, and you could even write a cute lil' message especially for your loved one to read.

If its a sibling who you constantly squabble with, you could also just write: 'Santa prefers me.'

8. Flower Power

If you've got a penchant for origami, this is the gift wrapping idea for you.

We're going to assume that most of you don't, in fact, have an obsession for origami.

Nevertheless, you can craft flowers by watching some decent Youtube tutorials, or just using cut up coloured sugar paper layered on top of one another, and using black fringed paper for the centre. 

It's probably harder than it looks, but it could be worth a try…

9. Calendar girls

Why not mark the special occasion by…literally marking the special occasion. On your present. Genius or what?

It also helps the environment from unnecessary waste if you decide to use this year's calendar for wrapping your gifts. EUREKA.

10. Fairy lights 

Light up your loved one's lives (yes, we actually said that) with this adorable gift wrapping idea.

All you need for this one is some brown paper and markers, and add glitter to spice it up. Simples.

We're definitely going to try and tackle some of these gift wrapping ideas, they'll add a creative and personal touch to anyone's Christmas.

Funkos are preparing to release their brand new Harry Potter themed Christmas advent calendar and we have no doubt this will fly off the shelves.

They are already well-known for their adorable ‘Pop’ figurines, but this has taken magical to a whole new level.

Featuring characters such as Hermione, Harry, Ron, Hagrid, Dumbledore, Dobby and Hedwig as well as a collection of beasts, ghosts, house elves and famous wizards, every day brings a whole new pocket-sized collectable character.

We don’t think we can handle this level of excitement. Mini versions of all our Hogwarts faves = Winter perfection.

Imagine waking up to a new collectable and having a butterbeer by the fire; Christmas literally can’t come quick enough. (Ideally we'd get a ticket to the Yule Ball while we're at it but Santa might hook us up?)

Witches, wizards, and even Muggles can get their hands on the calendar as soon as Funkos releases it, make sure you’ve got your galleons counted so you don’t have to rush to Gringotts at the last minute.

Funko's have definitely upped their Christmas game, we'll keep all you Potter fanboys and fangirls posted with all the updates. 

It's looking like it will sell out in record time judging by the feverish responses from Twitter users.

Maybe if we chant “Accio Christmas” clutching our wands it might speed up the process? It’s worth a shot…

Dear Santa…. we have been relatively well-behaved this year, and only have ONE thing on our list. 

The only thing any of us want (or need) this Christmas is this sexy farmer calendar. 

Professional photographer Fred Goudon travelled to rural regions of France to shoot his French Farmers 2017 Calendar, which he is calling a "tribute to a profession that is often overlooked".

A tribute indeed, Fred. 

Fred spoke to Cosmopolitan about his work with these agricultural beauties, saying that "all of them have lent themselves to play the game of posing in a sexy way". 

Get yourself a copy of "Le Calendrier des Agriculteurs" on Amazon this Christmas… you won't regret it. 

If you need me, I'll be roaming the rural hills of Northern France… looking for a husband.

Every year, Pirelli asks twelve of the world's most beautiful women to appear in their much-talked-about calendar. 

The calendar is usually a collection of provocative portraits released annually by the Italian tire manufacturer.

While invitations have historically been reserved for supermodels and fashion icons, the first star set to appear in the 2016 edition is American sports legend, Serena Williams.

The tennis pro took to Twitter today to announce the exciting news.

The calendar is famous for its sexy edge and tasteful touch of nudity, was shot in July and will be released in its entirety come November.

Joining the ranks of so many supers, Serena has achieved Pirelli girl status just as Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Joan Smalls have in the past.
