It seems to take me forever! I love to look at wrapped presents, but I struggle with the actual wrapping. Makes me feel like such a grinch! That's actually why I'm here posting instead of upstairs working on the wrapping.......

I too used to hate wrapping, then I learned how (company merger forced me to do gift wrapping as part of my new job), and actually enjoy it now. At one time I even played with the idea of opening my own gift wrapping business. When the ladies of church have their seceret sister, I can never wrap my gifts because everyone knows that they are mine! It is pretty irritating - I always have to use a gift bag.

However, I completely understand the time factor. Since you are a crafty person, maybe make some really cute bags to put them in. It could become a family tradition or game. Who gets the Santa bag this year? What do you think it is, look at the shape. Or, that is my bag (name embroidered on it), I will try to guess what is in it. Good luck.

I enjoy wrapping, if I can sit and do it, and not be interrupted. I like making pretty bows, and like using the thin old fashioned ribbon that you can curl.

I HATE to wrap gifts also!!! I have been wrapping gifts for over 50 years and they still look like a 6 year old did them!! Anyone who wants to come and wrap mine for me can have some of my fabric -- their choice :D :D :D :D

I love to wrap gifts. When my daughter was 11 (she was young)she worked at a beautiful gift shop on weekends for Christmas. All she did was wrap gifts. She had that job every Christmas until she was 15. She did that and also worked for a few of the shop owners decorating their windows for Christmas. I miss Long Island at Christmas.

I do not wrap. I think up gift ideas. I buy gifts. My husband wraps. We've done it that way for years.

My spare room is full of gifts waiting to be wrapped. It seems like I always have to hurry at the last minute because I keep putting it off. I hate wrapping.
