Verpacken: To wrap something tight for shipping or similar. Like a packet. Products at the supermarket.

Einpacken: To put something inside of something. The baggage in the car. Food for a road trip.

I would say 'Geschenke einpacken' is more correct. I would only use 'Geschenke verpacken' if I send them by mail.

"Geschenke einpacken" scheint mir besser. "Verpacken" ist auch verständlich.
