Wrapping Presents

Here's a little admission... I'm really picky about wrapping presents. 

I love, love, love wrapping presents and want it done right.  With crisp edges, bows and a matching gift tag. 

My presents come out like this:

Because of that... I haven't had a "surprise" on Christmas for years.  Seriously.  I wrap my own gifts from other people.  It starts innocent enough.  "I need help wrapping a few things" my mom will say; which then turns into her entire closet of gifts and I know exactly what I'm getting.

But, I suppose it's better than getting something that looks like this, right?


  1. O my....I love beautifully wrapped mom always had the most lovely gifts.

  2. I remember being younger and I would wrap my brothers gifts to everyone, including me. Only, he would wrap tons of tape around it so I couldn't tell what it was.

  3. I wrap my gifts from my husband :-) but, I don't know what they are...only where they come from :-) so far it's goodies from Victoria Secret and Old Navy-lol.

  4. You sound just like me! I spend literally hours wrapping all of our gifts - coordinating papers, tissue paper, handmade ribbons, glittery tags. It's quite a process. And when we lived closer to home, my mom saved up all her presents for me to wrap when I got there before Christmas - including my own!

  5. My mom loves to wrap presents too!
    She is always telling my grandma how to do it right!
    I loved the Christmas Can-Can!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. We love to unwrap presents and eat the paper! Mommy loves to wrap too and make pretty bows.

  7. My wrapping is pretty sorry looking..

  8. I love beautifully wrapped gifts - makes the anticipation that much more delicious! Sadly, my wrapping has become increasingly lame over time. I used to be great at wrapping presents, then one day one of Santa's elves kidnapped me and stole my wrapping talent. That's my story, anyway.

  9. I'm horrible at gift wrapping! Everything I buy ends up in gift bags.

  11. I love wrapping too. I've been known to get paid by some friends and even strangers to help them out. :)
