Gift Wrapping & Tissue Paper

Frequently Asked Questions

Find quick answers to our most common gift-wrapping and tissue paper queries.

What is tissue paper used for?

You can use tissue paper for a variety of purposes, including wrapping gifts, protecting fragile items during transit, or lining gift hampers. When scrunched up, it adds volume to gift boxes and gift bags, and folded neatly inside a wicker basket it tops off the hamper beautifully.

What is acid-free tissue paper?

Acid-free tissue has been treated to neutralise the acid that is naturally present in the paper. This helps protect the paper from colour transfer, becoming brittle and yellowing over time. It's the ideal solution to wrap and protect delicate items such as jewellery and food-wrapped items.

Is tissue paper eco-friendly?

With our FSC-certified tissue paper, you're making an environmentally responsible choice for your business and customers. In addition to being sourced responsibly, the material is acid-free, making it biodegradable and compostable.

How do I cellophane wrap a hamper?

The best way to wrap a gift tray where the contents sit flush with the top edge, is like a present, with the sides neatly tucked under. With the lid open, place a wicker hamper basket in the centre of a roll of cellophane and gather it at the top, securing it with a pretty ribbon.

How eco-friendly is your cellophane?

Our biodegradable clear wrap, made from bio-based sources, is naturally degradable and compostable. Even though our standard clear cellophane wrap isn't biodegradable, it is recyclable, making it a good option for hamper wrapping.

How do you shrink wrap a gift basket?

Place your gift hamper in one of our shrink-wrap bags and cut to size if necessary. Use a heat gun to start the shrinking process. As the material begins to shrink, move the gun in a circular motion around the bag to heat the entire bag evenly. Once complete, leave to cool before handling. It's that easy!
