Easy, cheap and effective wrapping idea
Take a four hole button and thread across cord or ribbon. Laying it on your parcel cut a length of cord that will go round the parcel width and lengthwise allowing enough extra for a bow. Adjust cord so button is in the middle. Wrap cord round parcel coming up and through other two holes. Tie tightly making a bow then tying bow again for strength. Not my idea. Think it's traditional in some countries. You can layer up the buttons as I have done to make it even nicer.
