# 23 no way. No way no way no way I could pull that off lol! It hurts my brain just looking at it
#29 is the only one that makes $$$ sense.
Why spend the extra cash for all the pretty stuff when it's only going to be looked at long enough to rip it open and toss it in the trash?
You must be male. :p
My personal rules are these:
1. No gift should take longer to wrap than it took to earn the money to buy it.
2. The time spent wrapping a gift should not exceed the time spent making the gift if it is handmade.
Yes, I am male. Having said that, I've been pretty creative and while still following these rules.
These are all really pretty, but what real person has the time to do any of these?!? I'm happy to throw some tissue paper around a present and shove it in a bag.
I know a lot of people will say why bother, but it feels really nice to get a gift that looks like someone took time to do it. Not just some santa wrapping paper and a prebought bow. Its different and pretty. I love the idea. Especially #11
These are all beautiful, and if I had like 5 presents to wrap total, I'd probably put that kind of effort in. As it is, though, I'm wrapping all of the presents (except the ones for me) for both myself and my SO's families, so that ends up being more than 20. My back hurts just thinking about it!
I love gift wrapping so much. It's my favourite part of the holidays. However, I agree that some of these are way over the top… I know my mother would feel guilty opening something like this from me because of how long it had clearly taken, lol.
Keep it simple like in #9 and you can have a really classy looking gift with not a lot of effort. c:
#19 & #20 Candycane Twine?! Where?!
#23 is especially awesome does anyone know how to do it and will share please?
3, 4, 7, 9, 15, 22, 24, and 29 aren't hard or break the bank expensive if people are into making them. Its ok if you don't want to make them, but I love this kind of stuff!
I'm sorry for this intrusion, I see from your site that we are very much into the same things.
This is the correct blog for anyone who needs to seek out out about this topic.
Lol I used newspaper from my dad's recycles…I spent money on gifts though so who could be unhappy? ^_^
#22 I did last year. But with strong packing tape instead of string :]

My mother taught me that presents should be so pretty that no one wants to open them. Two reasons, 1, no one peeks, 2, they add to how pretty your tree is.
[...] importantly… YOU’ll know. Have a great day everyone. Let the wrapping begin!!! images: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, [...]
