Some people would buy gift wrappers and put ribbons in their gifts..others would just place it on a paper bag and that's it..how do you wrap you presents? do you use your creativity and style the wrappers or paper bag is just fine?

I tend to go with classic wrapping. I'm not very good at it, unfortunately! If I'm picking up a last minute gift, I tend to go with bags, though.

gifts - gifts
Lstely, I sent gifts to my family back to the Philippines:) through balikbayan box, some were wrapped by myself, others were just in a paper bag with their names on. But I always like to wrap gifts, customize the ribbon and even make a paper bag myself, I was just sooo busy with mylot lately that I decided not to wrap all the gifts myself:)+

I usually just wrap my gifts in gift wrappers.. other than that, I don't really put a great deal of effort in the wrapping. Afterall, it's going to be ripped apart. If the gift is really big, I'll prolly just put it in a nice paperbag.

I don't really care about the wrapper, as long as the gift is nice. Once I bought an Mp4 for a friend and I had no paper to wrap. I used the newspaper. lol He laughed at the wrapping, but loved the contents:)

Yes I use wrapping paper...I do my best to make it look as horrible as possible for fun. It is going to be ripped apart anyway so why take the time to make it look pretty?
