    i dont know if i'm explaining this right but here it goes. Stand the bottle in the centre of a large sheet of wrapping paper, gather all the sides up neatly and twist around the neck tie this with pretty ribbon. This should look nice but i've probably explained it all wrong.

    I vote for cutting it into large strips and wrapping it around :rofl:

    I can never wrap things very well if they aren't perfect squares/rectangles!

    Good luck!!

    BTW, good to see you back ;) xx

    i like your final suggestion :D i would buy a spangly bottle bag, ha. i hate wrapping bottles. even when i try the gather at the neck and tie with a ribbon thing it always ends up either tearing somewhere or bunching somewhere, or, quite probably, both...

    Haha i'm rubbish at wrapping too, mine always looks like it's been done by a 5 year old! I just stick bottles in a bottle bag. Yeah I say take them home and celebrate when your babies are born :p. I've got a bottle of champers waiting that we got given when we moved into our new house. We were going to celebrate on the saturday night, got my bfp that morning hehe!
