Getting gifts for your friends and family is one thing on your to-do list this holiday season.

But once you have all the gifts, they still need to wrapped! Of course, you could have the stores do it, but why not add a personal touch?

Alaina Pearling, Michaels (, came into our ABC7 studio to show us creative gift-wrapping tips and how to make gift baskets.

Alaina's Wrapping Tips:
- Add embellishments such as ornaments, picks and floral accents.
- When building a gift basket, include a piece of foam at the bottom to give it extra height. Include items that are at different heights to get instant depth.
- Glue dots are a great way to hold gift basket items in place.
