I finally decided to start wrapping the gifts that i do have tonight. I don't have a tree but i have a designated spot for my gifts and i wanted to make my house a little festive. So i wrapped them up and put them in their spot. And now i have alittle bit of Christmas in my house. But i will be the first to admit that i would not make a good professional gift wrapper. I try really hard, but they suck in the end. And my thumb hurts pretty bad from the tape dispenser. But i really enjoy wrapping gifts because it's all part of the giving process. And i love it. Are you a good gift wrapper? Do you like wrapping gifts or do you just want to get it over with?

Your running out of time. If you wrap them all at one time you might hurt your fingers like me!!

I'm not a great gift wrapper. I do like to put things into boxes so that the gift is not so easily known. (We bought a little vintage pin for my Mom and it came in a jewelry box. I put the box into a larger pasta box then wrapped that.) Our tree is small and a target for the fur persons. Leah pup easily hits the tree boughs with her long tail. So far the smallest gifts sit up on a little table. The largest one that's for my hubby sits on an ottoman in the bedroom. (Can't have accidents on it.)

Oh I understand the furbabies and christmas trees all too well. I like using boxes and different things like that too so they can't guess what the item is. That just makes it fun

I would say I'm ok but could do better. I hope your fingers are better by now.

Glad u have a little bit of Xmas there now friend. It is cheerful for sure. I am not a good wrapper, but I could be if I put more effort into it. I used to.

I want it over at this point. I just taped the edge of the jewelry boxes and wrote the names on the bottom.

I admit that any presents that are peculiar shapes are given to my Mum to wrap. She is very good at wrapping.

I used to always enjoy wrapping gifts but now I tend to go with those gift bags. I still wrap some but not as many as I used to

I used to enjoy it a lot. Not so much anymore. My daughter was visiting here and helped me out by wrapping things for me. I think I just may start out now anticipating how much I will enjoy it next year. I am certain that will help.
