    Gift Wrapping

    Do you carefully wrap your pressies beautifully or just a haphazard wrapping as it doesn't matter as gift is enough and .... wrapping will get ripped apart anyway?

    I guess I fall into the category of wrapping beautifully whether the gift be just 'socks and underwear' or something expensive. I luv wrapping presents and do it from the heart.

    Double sided tape (so no tape visible), nice ribbon and some embellishment...... maybe I'm just 'over Christmassy' ... well who knows but I do luv it

    When the kids were little though ..... it was just basic wrapping. Their faces were such a joy as wrapping paper went flying everywhere......

    HA!...there's that word again. "Pressies".

    I am not a very neat present wrapper. I tend to go pretty fast. My mother-in-law has MS, so she can't wrap anymore. All her presents are in gift bags. It makes her sad, but we all tell her they still look beautiful.

    expensive gift or a pair of socks....
    Merry Christmas to all...

    I like my gifts to look beautiful, so I take my time and wrap neatly. I used to buy only the most expenive wrapping paper, ribbon and bows and people would rave about the wrapping - but no more - can't afford it anymore!

    I think mine still look nice. My only problem is that people complain I use too much tape. I don't like when the wrapping paper looks "loose".

    I buy my wrapping paper in the 'after Christmas sales', save the ribbons every year from the family pressies and make my own bows......

    My very first job was in gift wrap. I used to buy Hallmark package trims and make the most beautiful gifts for Christmas and birthdays. As the years went by, I noticed that people tend to be more interested in the gift than the wrapping. Eventually I recognized that not only are we not wealthy, but we weren't even headed that way.I learned to cut back on package trims and now I'm trying to eliminated paper if the gift is for a family member. I make cloth bags or use pillowcases and have the grandchild return those to me. But I'm not a Scrooge --- I love buying and giving gifts.

    and crown him Lord of all."
