IF you're anything like us, you probably avoid gift wrapping paper like the plague and instead, just chuck all the Christmas presents in gift bags – after all, who's got the time to individually wrap all the goods?
However, the problem with this method is that it takes away the surprise element – the person can see what's inside the bag right after it's been handed over.
And, turns out, there's a reason why – we all have been using gifts bags wrong.
Yes, yes, here, at Fabulous, we're just as shocked as you are – who knew there's a correct way of using these handy bags?

The rising TikTok star, Ksenia Senn, has figured it out – and has also shared this simple trick with us.
''Let me show you how to do it correctly!''

According to her, you're supposed to pull each end of the string through the opposite hole – and do the same for the other side.
Once you lift the bag, the weight of the gift will pull down the strings – automatically closing the bag.
''Now the person you're giving the gift to will be surprised when they open it!''
Although this hack takes virtually seconds, someone didn't seem as impressed, saying: ''AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR DAT!''
Another viewer thanked for this life-saving tip, which she happened to see just in time: ''I have a gift that I was going to give to someone then I saw your video!
''I did it thank you!''
''IVE LIVED A LIFE OF JUST GIVING THEM A BAG AND NEVER KNEW THIS!'' a fellow TikToker wrote.
But, according to some, this is nothing new.
''So people didn't know that?'' one seemed confused, while another gift guru added: ''I did that as a kid!''
