  • Lol, Im actually pretty good at wrapping gifts. My Mom used to have me wrap all my brothers and sisters gifts since around age 10.. So I guess practice makes perfect, lol.

  • Mine don't always look nice but I get the job done. Of course in my family, the more creative and the harder to open the better the wrapping job. So no ones look nice and Christmas can take a long time if we don't have a knife handy!

  • My sister is amazing at this. She will not hesitate to spend half an hour per gift making sure the bow is centered and matching her color schemes and everything. However, I do not have this sort of time or patience. So I let the kids help me and then use that as an excuse. I am ok, if let to my own devices with no outside distractions. But my sister and MIL put me to shame every time.

  • Mine r ok....I dont really go for gorgeous presents...Im more for speed. We always wrap all of it on Christmas eve....now My Mil wants them to be pretty, and she wraps so flipping slow. The inlaws were with us on Christmas eve once, and they were amazed that it only took me an hour to wrap all the presents....she usually only does 3 or 4 a night!! Why!?! Why is she so slow! if I ever have to watch her wrap a present again I will scream!!!
