This fall, I also had the opportunity to record a few professional videos for eHow.com on how to tie bows on presents. My favorite bow to tie is a Puff Bow. These bows make such a great impression, and the technique I use makes them much easier to tie than they may look. The key is really to use wired-edge ribbon because you can bend it into shape. This time of year you can get huge rolls of this in fun Christmas designs at craft stores. I usually stock up after the holidays when they're on clearance.

Tulle Puff Bows are another favorite of mine. At Christmas, I think a white tulle puff bow looks so pretty on snowflake wrapping paper in particular because these bows look like fluffy snowballs or snowflakes.
