Ties are a standard gift choice for men. Some ties come in boxes, which are easy to wrap. However, others do not come with a box, which can present a gift-wrapping challenge. You can add some pizazz to an ordinary gift like a tie by using some unique gift-wrapping techniques. Turn the challenge of wrapping a tie into an opportunity to creatively disguise your gift.


Step 1

Lay the tie out flat on a clean, flat surface.

Step 2

Roll the tie beginning at the wider end and ending at the narrower end. Be sure not to wrinkle the tie as you roll.


Step 3

Slide the tie into a paper towel tube.


Step 4

Stuff tissue paper into either end of the paper towel tube to keep the tie from sliding around.


Step 5

Cover the entire tube, including the ends in several layers of tissue paper. Tape the tissue as you go to secure it in place.



Step 6

Cut a piece of wrapping paper that is big enough to wrap around the tube several times with several inches of paper sticking out from the ends of the tube.


Step 7

Lay the tube near one of the longer edges of the wrapping paper and tape the paper to the tube.


Step 8

Roll the wrapping paper around the tube several times and secure it with several pieces of tape along the length of the tube.

Step 9

Twist the ends of the paper that are sticking out from either end of the tube.


Step 10

Tie a curling ribbon in a knot around each twisted end to secure the twists in place.

Step 11

Hold the ends of the curling ribbon between your thumb and the edge of a scissors blade and pull outward to curl the ribbons.
