Do you do your own wrapping for Christmas?

Some people make use of gift wrappers at the mall. Unless, the gift wrapping is free, I do my own wrapping. I am not a good wrapper,,but I try! Some people wrap presents so nicely, it looks like a professional did it. Do you wrap your own gifts..how do you rate your wrapping skills? I would be kind to myself to give me a C. Some people are lucky enough to know people who like to wrap and give them their gifts to wrap.

I'm "crafty", so I like to think I can wrap pretty well. But the thing is I can be lazy and I often use gift bags . I was always fascinated by my mom's gift wrapping technique as she was all about being nice and neat.

I won't lie I can wrap but don't want to. My ex-wraps for me and he was a gift wrapper. I have a lot more and he will wrap them all.

I am the worst gift wrapper...ever. My wrapping looks like it is mauled by a lawnmower haha! But I still do it, but it just gives the gift character

@snowy22315 oh yeah sure, what I mean is that it is all abstract, the wrinkles and tears all mean different things...heh...heh. Avant-garde! And all that jazz

I do my own wrapping unless it's something big that can't be wrapped then I just put it in a big bag. I've never had anyone do wrapping for me.

I've always done my own wrapping, though I hardly buy gifts anymore. I will give cash if I have it.

I like giftcards but they aren't for everybody.

I would never pay someone to wrap mine and I don't like standing in queues either to have it done for free. If anyone ever complains about how I wrap their present it will be the last one they get!

I am not good with spatial relations so I always end up with too much or too little on the package.

Same here, unless the gift wrapping is free, no way that I would pay that extra when I could save some money. I am quite good at wrapping things . (I am thinking if I could wrap our kitten if the need arises... )
