After hunting down the right holiday gifts for everyone (hopefully by using our helpful guides), it's time to lock yourself in a room and start wrapping. Make the job a breeze without resorting to gift bags by mastering this fancy wrapping technique common in Japanese department stores.

Inspired by a video of a man wrapping presents at breakneck speed in Japan's Takashimaya department store, YouTube user BeatTheBush created a step-by-step tutorial for wrapping presents like a pro. After dissecting the video, he was able to figure out how it's done—and now passes that wisdom on to us. With a little practice, you can be as efficient as one of Santa's elves.
