It’s a wrap!

Everyone has their own approach to wrapping Christmas gifts. Some leave it all to the the last minute and do it all in one (big) hit.  Others get them wrapped in-store at the time of purchase.  Some people wrap all their gifts in the same paper/ribbon combination, others like variety.  Some, like my mother in law, love buying gifts but hate wrapping them!

A new approach I’m trying this year is a two-phased system: wrap the gifts in giftpaper when I have the time and privacy, noting the recipients’ names either in biro or with a gift card/sticker.  Then, closer to Christmas Day, I’ll finish off the job by trimming the wrapped gifts with ribbon, curling foil and rosettes. 

The advantage with this approach is that I can take my time with the trimming, in order to get it right, and not have to do it in private.  For, unless the gift is a distinctive shape, nobody will be able to guess the content’s identity once it’s safely wrapped in paper.
