Halle Berry can teach us all a thing or two about wrapping presents. The Oscar-winning actress has showcased her impeccable wrapping on Instagram – and they put ours to shame! "Wrapping game strong," she captioned a post on Instagram Stories showing her beautifully wrapped gifts which were in place under her Christmas tree.

And it's not too late to take inspiration from the actress to add a special finishing touch to your presents this Christmas; Halle's gifts are all wrapped in traditional Christmas paper, but it is the extra flourishes she adds with ornaments and tags that make them look truly impressive.

The 51-year-old has wrapped ribbon or twine multiple times around each gift, then added cute ornaments and accessories such as pom poms, or a pair of gold glitter-dipped feathers. She has also opted for a tonal colour scheme of navy, pink and gold, so all of her presents look beautifully co-ordinated under the tree.

It's not surprising Halle has made an extra effort with her Christmas gifts; she recently told her 2.3 million Instagram followers that this is her "favourite time of year". She also shared a photo of what appeared to be a homemade Christmas decoration made of sugared cranberries shaped into a heart.
