How do you feel about gift wrapping presents? Do you wrap all your Christmas and holiday presents, even the ones from Santa Claus? Do you save any of the wrappings for next year? Photo- google images/countryliving.com

I place all gifts that will fit in a gift bag in a gift bag. I rarely have to wrap a gift thanks to all those sizes of gift bags.

I gift wrap all the presents and if the paper is still good and not too creased I might keep it for the next year.

I save the bows I put on the presents. I can always scotch tape them where the sticky side is...

@dgobucks226 I do that too because they are such great bows aren't they? I could never tie one like the ones you buy.

@JudyEv I have tried Judy, but I had to give up. My mother could do it perfectly. I am all thumbs

Gift bags are definitely easier . . . and I actually do save gift bags when we get gifts . . . why not repurpose these perfectly good bags, right? But I can gift wrap too . . . in fact, this year I'm going to try to get rid of all the gift wrapping I've bought . . . time to make room! The way the kids go at the gift wrap - there's no point in me saving the gift wrap .

I am quite an economical person in wrapping presents. I usually use old magazines or newspapers.

@dgobucks226 I do decorate them with the same design in wrapping a gift with regular gift wraps. It resembles like this. Image Credit: i.pinimg.com

I like gift wrapping, It adds to the season, though sometimes a Christmas themed gift bag works well too. I do sometimes save wrappings for the next year. :)

@dgobucks226 Since Christmas is not my holiday I do not gift wrap Christmas presents. I do not always gift wrap presents I give people for our holidays and birthdays.

I'm not very good at wrapping gifts. That's why I like gift bags and boxes.

Whatever method works! I might start using those gift bags for those really hard to wrap presents.

I like wrapping presents, it's almost therapeutic to wrap gifts, especially when I'm overwhelmed during the holidays. sometimes I'll save the bows or wrapping paper if it didn't get crushed or wrinkled too badly.

I agree. The present wrapping is the last bit of holiday icing on the cake for me in enjoying the holiday spirit.

I loved to wrap the present myself, even the difficult shapes. I save some wrappings, not all.

Back when I celebrated, I couldn't wrap presents worth a damn. They just looked awful.

I am challenged if the gift is not shaped like a box. So, I always try to put any odd shaped gift into a box to wrap.

It depends..Sometimes I save boxes and gift bags but not usually wrapping paper. I wrap mine usually.
