    Remove the tags

    Before you start wrapping the gift, make sure that all of the tags are removed properly. You would not want the other person to know the price of the gift you have bought no matter if it is expensive or not. Moreover, some tags contain the information regarding where the gift was bought, so you need to get rid of that too. In case, you find it difficult to remove any tag, black it out using a marker or a pen.
