Anyone who's had a gift wrapped up for them at a Japanese department store will know that even the most oddly shaped present will come back as a bundle of wrinkle-free perfection, often in the blink of an eye. And while most of us would kill to have the same speedy skills as the gift wrapping staff, — especially during the holiday season — we're quick to assume that their skills are attributed to countless hours working behind the counter, and that we'd never be able to mimic their mesmerizing technique at home.

But as YouTuber BeatTheBush shows viewers, fast gift wrapping isn't so hard after all. After reviewing a video clip taken at a Takashimaya department store, BeatTheBush gives his audience step-by-step instructions on how to speed gift wrap like the pros.

Though it might take a bit of getting used to, even the most inept gift wrapper will be cruising through their holiday gift wrapping in no time at all. Those who master the skill could even become as fast as the department store employees, some of whom can easily complete the task in just 10+ seconds. Hopefully, this will make shopping for the holidays so much less stressful, and even save some time for us to pick out a little something for ourselves!
