A mum has got Christmas all wrapped up this year after coming up with a stress-free solution to preparing presents.

Jane Galilee, 51, of Roman Bank, Stamford, has founded Beetlebag, a contemporary present pouch which has self-sealing ends with a gift tag. They are available in three sizes, A3, A4 and A5.

Jane came up with the idea when she was commuting to London everyday as a surveyor and wrapping presents for her sons Max and Eddie became a stressful experience.

“There has always been wrapping paper and gift bags but I’d never seen anything in between.”

Jane will be selling the pouches at Stamford Christmas Festival on Sunday.

They can also be bought online at www.beetle
