Our buddy, Molly, shared an idea in which you cut a toilet paper or paper towel roll lengthwise and cuff it around a tube of gift wrapping paper to prevent it from unrolling. It will also help a roll of wrapping paper without a tube stay rolled up.
You can also store appliance cords and keep them tangle-free by looping them and sticking them inside a cardboard roll.
