There's enough stress during the holiday season, and many of my friends found Wrap Buddies made gift wrapping quick and easy – which is the main reason we decided to get the product to the market through crowdfunding.

After wrapping up nearly $8,000 from backers on Kickstarter and easily surpassing its campaign goal, crowdfunding for the innovative Wrap Buddies system continues on Indiegogo.
Bret Wortman, a software executive who created the concept, says he’s excited to know that hundreds of people will be putting “a gift wrapper’s best friend” to work in 2017 – especially during next year’s holiday season.
“Many people love buying gifts, but dread wrapping them – especially if they’re not good at it and have many presents to prepare,” Wortman said. “Wrap Buddies really offers them a great solution, especially for those who wrap gifts alone.”
Wortman adds that gift givers who pay to have their gifts wrapped at the mall for a professional look can now attain that sharp presentation by themselves with Wrap Buddies – and save money in the process.
Wrap Buddies consists of two inward-facing devices that grip the side of a table and hold the tube of wrapping paper at just the right tension. This allows the user to roll out the perfect amount of paper to wrap the gift in a fraction of the time it would normally take. One side of the device also has an integrated tape dispenser, while the other side has a post for holding a roll of ribbon when its needed.
Wrap Buddies is also easy to store, collapsing to the size of a fist so it fits in any drawer for easy access year round.
In addition to holiday wrapping, Wrap Buddies can also serve as an extra set of hands for many other household and craft uses, including:
- Dispensing aluminum foil
- Using cling wrap for production-line style holiday cookie packaging
- Securing rolls of butcher paper when cooking meats on a smoker
- Storing ready-to-go craft paper for the kids
- Serving as an emergency toilet paper roll holder
“There's enough stress during the holiday season, and many of my friends found Wrap Buddies made gift wrapping quick and easy – which is the main reason we decided to get the product to the market through crowdfunding,” Wortman said. “It allows anyone to wrap more quickly and easily than ever before."
