  • You don't. It is rude.

  • Agreed that it's rude.

    Why does it matter how something is wrapped? Just accept any gifts and say thank you.

  • Unless there is a very pressing reason why you want the gifts wrapped a certain way, don't tell the guests anything. I there is a pressing reason, which I'm not comingup with, then state it as tactfully as you can.

    You are invited to Mimi's baby shower, and I hope you can come. Unfortunately, Mimi has a very serious paper allergy. Please find an alternative to paper if you would like to bring a wrapped gift. Thank you.

  • You do not. You can suggest a theme if you wish but it is up to the guests how they wish to interpret it.
    I went to one recently that was jungle themed but most did not wrap the gift in jungle paper not get anything of a jungly feel.
    You go not dictate gifts, amounts or wraps and still be polite.

  • You should appreciate the fact you received a gift!
    Who cares how it is wrapped!
