Win £400-worth of WHSmith goodies + the chance for your child to become a video superstar

Regardless of what's found inside, we'll always remember the gifts that are lovingly (and painstakingly) wrapped by children

Whether covered in shop-bought wrap, hand-crafted paper, newspaper or make-do tinfoil, presents wrapped by little fingers are sure to melt the hearts of mums, dads, grandparents, aunties and uncles everywhere. After all, when it comes to wrapping, it's the effort that counts. The simplest gift can feel like it's worth a million pounds if someone has taken the time to wrap it with love - even if it's enveloped in crinkled, crumpled masses of paper and oodles of sticky tape.

WHSmith is seeking out the UK's most enthusiastic little wrappers in order to find the Champion Child Gift Wrapper of 2016. One lucky child will be chosen by the retailer to star in its festive video guide, sharing their tips for lovingly wrapped presents.

With Christmas on the horizon, here's a sneak peak at WHSmith's 2016 Christmas wrapping paper range. 

Embracing seasonal trends, there's something to suit all styles and budgets. In-store from Monday 3 October 2016, each range is complemented with a stunning collection of accessories, ribbons and bows for those all important finishing touches.

Red & white

Nothing says Christmas like a combination of red and white prints. This traditional Scandinavian design has become the modern icon of Christmas style. 


The homemade look exudes the essence of Christmas giving - making a style statement whilst being thoughtful and personal. 


The opulent tones of champagne, silver, rose gold and copper are the perfect way to inject some luxury style into Christmas gifts, for an extra special touch. 


The deep and rich tones of dark blue, silver and gold ooze timeless style. An elegant and classic Christmas theme.


For those who want a vibrant Christmas, the Jewels range - featuring vivid teal, pink, indigo and gold tints - will guarantee your Christmas shines.


These icy-cool tones of pale blue and silver conjure up a winter wonderland of snow, skating and sparkle. 


To celebrate Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 16 December, WHSmith is selling two very special Christmas bears, named Benji and Bruno. The retailer will donate £1 for every bear sold. In addition, WHSmith will be selling an exclusive range of Charity wrapping paper and 20% of the purchase price of every roll will go to Save the Children.
