Gift Bags or a Wrapped Gift?
September 27, 2016 5:33pm CST
Don't have any idea what put this thought in my mind, other than the fact that it is colder outside that I like it to be so I guess that, Christmas just popped into my mind. And then there is the fact that I have to be the world's worst gift wrapper. I honestly hate having to wrap gifts because they are so bad, that the family instantly knows who they are from. I wouldn't even have to use a tag on any of them lol... other than who they are to! So, on Christmas morning, do you care one way or another if you gift is hand wrapped or inside of a gift bag with frothy paper on top lol??

I'm not good at gift wrapping but I will do it for my nephew whose 2. But for everyone else gift bag or sometimes nothing just gift itself! My mom says it's a waste of paper :) Even though we have so much wrapping paper as is!

I bet that you can wrap gifts a lot better than I can!! I am hopeless. I am in awe of people who make this look like an art form. I used to watch as my son's laughed at my gift wrapping attempts and my wife too. So a few years ago I switched to buying gift bags and those wee cards you write on. Much easier. So it's gift bags that get my vote. Personally I think it's the thought that counts and I am not bothered about whether it's in a bag or wrapped.

I use gift bags more and more often. Unless something is in a box that is a bit unusual in shape or size, I just use a gift bag. I have tons of them, and tons of tissue paper. Unfortunately they're hard to get rid of as so many ended out coming back into our house. LOL!

I personally put a lot of thought on the presentation of my gift...but i don't expect it out of anyone else in my family because i know it is not their thing. So when getting gifts....it doesn't matter to me how it is wrapped. I got what i wanted...didn't i?

Honestly I try to avoid using gift bags when I am able, even if my wrapping is not perfect with odd shaped items. Personally I prefer tearing open the wrapping paper on a wrapped gift, but I think that's just me not wanting to grow up LOL. But honestly it doesn't matter, it's the thought and the gift that counts. I think however when watching someone else, it's much more fun to see them rip into a package as well.
