Are you Gift Wrapper-Conscious?

When giving or receiving a gift, do you look at/ consider the wrapper used? Why, or Why not?

I always try to wrap my gifts in paper that's appropriate for the recipient and try to make it look as nice as I can. When I receive a gift, I notice if it is beautifully wrapped, but if get something that isn't wrapped as attractively, I open it anyway.

No, I never check to see if a wrapper has been previously used. However, if it was, than I support the person who takes the time to do it. I'm a huge supporter of recycling, and reusing gift wrapping aids in conservation efforts. Cheers!

I don't even care how it's wrapped. The wrapping paper is going to be torn off anyways. I'm also not a perfect wrapper - but I try and make things look decent. I've never seen anyone pay attention to the paper before. Except for one person. My best friend would carefully untape the wrapping and fold it to keep. I was laughing at him. LOL.

It is a major part of the gift, you can tell alot by the way a gift is wrapped. If it is thrown together or wrapped in paper that doen't fit the occassion you can tell the giver is just going through the motions.

Hmm I'd like to say I don't, but sometimes I do. I like to see pretty wrapping paper because I think it reflects on how carefully the person thought out the gift.

I don't really care I think that it is the thought that counts. My sister is the pickiest person I know about girt wrapping. She likes her bows to be dramtic and contrasting, her corners to be perfect...it is exhausting! I told her when she is wrapping Christmas gifts for three kids she might feel a little different.
