The Art of Gift Wrapping

I'm so-so when it comes to wrapping presents.  I make an effort, but ultimately, I'm happy if it just stays closed.

In case you haven't finished your Christmas wrapping and really want to impress the recipient, I give you "the art of Gift Wrapping" published by Hallmark in the 1960's.


  1. I am with you. Part of me would like to put the work and thought into it, but there isn't ever that much time to worry about something that will be torn apart in seconds.

    1. When I was a kid, my mother would warn us to open our presents very carefully, especially if they were large ones. She would then fold up the gift wrap and put it away for next year.

    2. That, to me, takes some of the fun out of it. Reminds me of this quote from Andy Rooney: “One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly."

    3. That's a great quote, and a lot of truth to it.
