How to Wrap a Snowboard for Christmas with 7steps

How to Wrap a Snowboard for Christmas with 7steps

Giving a snowboard as a Christmas gift is one of my favorite ways to play Santa. However, because this is a large and somewhat awkward item, wrapping it like a regular present under the tree can be difficult.

I've been snowboarding my entire life and have owned a variety of boards. I've received a few as gifts and given a few away. So I'm aware of how to properly wrap one.

This article will demonstrate how to wrap a snowboard for Christmas. I'll walk you through the steps and give you some pointers to make the process go more smoothly.

Let’s get started.

Wrapping a snowboard is similar to wrapping any other Christmas gift. The main difference is that it's larger and has sharp edges that can make wrapping difficult if you're not careful.

What you’ll need: 

Wrapping paper



Bubble wrap (optional)

Ribbons (optional)

To/From sticker (optional)

Step 1: Get Your Wrapping Paper

It's a good idea to get a larger roll of wrapping paper to make the entire process easier. You're unlikely to find a roll that is as long as the snowboard, so you'll need to make several wraps.

Choose any wrapping paper you want here. You may  want to go with a Christmas theme. Given that it's a winter sports-themed gift, snowflakes would probably be a nice touch.

Step 2: Unroll the Wrapping Paper

Unroll enough wrapping paper to cover the entire circumference of your board. If the board does not have bindings, this will be twice as wide. However, if you have bindings on the board, you will require even more paper.

Make sure the design side of the wrapping paper is facing the floor, or you'll be wrapping it incorrectly.

Step 3: Wrap the Snowboard in Bubble Wrap

This is an optional step, but I believe it simplifies the entire wrapping process. You don't have to do this step if you don't have bubble wrap or don't want to.

Simply wrap bubble wrap around the entire snowboard. To get complete coverage, go around the board in an angular motion. You can also cut the bubble wrap as you go to save some material.

Tape the bubble wrap to itself in several places to keep it in place as you wrap the board. If you do not use bubble wrap, the wrapping paper will tear much more easily on the board's edges and bindings, so be cautious.

Step 4: Lay the Snowboard on the Wrapping Paper

Once the wrapping paper has been rolled out (and the board has been bubble wrapped if necessary), place the bottom of the snowboard on top. Make sure to place the board on the paper with at least 6 inches of excess wrapping paper on top.

If you leave extra material at the top, you can fold it back for extra coverage. You should also do this when you get to the bottom.

Step 5: Start Wrapping

Begin wrapping the wrapping paper around the board now. Make one full wrap, then cut the paper. Make sure to leave enough extra paper to overlap and tape the ends together.

Roll out the paper and cut it to the proper length as many times as necessary to cover the entire board. If possible, tape the paper to itself rather than the snowboard.

Step 6: Secure the Ends

Once you've wrapped the entire snowboard, fold over the edges to create that classic gift look. There is no magic formula for this, and I'm not particularly good at it. However, take your time and try to fold and tape the ends down.

Step 7: Add Ribbons or Tags (Optional Step)

Now that the snowboard is completely wrapped, you can embellish it with ribbons or tags. Bows that simply stick on top of the paper are available, and a To/From sticker allows you to address the gift.


Here are some quick answers to some frequently asked snowboard wrap questions.

Are snowboard wraps effective?

Snowboard wraps can give your board a one-of-a-kind appearance. This is a good way to personalize a snowboard that you enjoy riding but don't like the way it looks. They can also increase the board's durability.

How much will it cost to wrap a snowboard?

Snowboard wraps can cost between $40 and $100, depending on the material used and the wrapping service used. There are numerous options available, and more expensive does not always imply better.

Is it possible to vinyl wrap a snowboard?

A snowboard can be vinyl wrapped. I've seen some of my friends do this, and the results were quite impressive. But I've also seen some failed attempts that ended in disaster. Just make sure you get a good product and properly install it.
