         B. Tinsel

         Now bring out those big, fluffy tinsel garlands you bought (you did
         buy some big, fluffy tinsel garlands, right?!) and cut off pieces
         of about 20 cm which you tie to the present using the ends of the
         string (exactly how much you need depends a bit on what type of
         tinsel you managed to find)

         Now bring out the candy canes and colourful chocolate balls (or bells
         or angels or santas, etc) you bought (you did buy some of those, right?!)
         and tie them to the present (one cane and 2-3 balls per present)

                       
                      .-.    *

         (If the decorations aren't fluffy enough, you can add some curled ribbons
         to get more volume)
