All Wrapped Up ...

They are all wrapped up!


It's funny how we spend so much time & care wrapping these gifts when the main objective is to unwrap them & peek inside.

Sometimes life is funny like that.

I have a love/hate relationship with gift wrapping.

I love giving beautifully wrapped gifts but find it a tedious chore.

Still, I usually manage to get about a  50/50 ratio of beautiful wrapped gifts and those that are lucky to have some shredded paper taped on them.

Does gift wrap matter?

Maybe we should we all go green and use old newspaper, maps & magazines etc?

It would definitely be cheaper & greener. 

I know a lot of people will still up at midnight on Christmas Eve wrapping gifts but I like to have it all done early so that I can just relax & chill before Christmas.

Case in point - the gifts are all wrapped and I'm off to enjoy a glass of wine.

  1. Oh I wish I was done wrapping but still need to get a couple of more things. But I have learned and get most of it wrapped before the 24th but still sometimes wrapping a couple of things on the 24th LOL. My goal is to be like you one of these years and have a relaxing Christmas Eve. I hope you get to read Aidan a Night Before Christmas. See you when you get back, love ya Dana
