Do you enjoy it or loathe it? Are you good at it? Would you rather just pay someone to do it for you? What would you pay? i must say, it is one of my favorite tasks of the holiday season and I've always wanted to offer a gift wrapping service to make a little extra money, but I have no idea what to charge.

I like wrapping presents (usually), I spread it out though. I will do a few each day so I don't get tired of it. I'm pretty good at wrapping.

 I like wrapping.. my only issue is I can't get away from my 4yr old long enough to do any of it! LOL

I would pay for someone to do it for me though if it was an option. I remember shopping with my dad on Christmas Eve and he'd take the gifts he bought for my mom to a "wrapping center" located in the middle of the store and they'd wrap all the gifts for some set price (I can't remember now) and then he could pick them up in so much time (long enough for him to go grab a coffee or us food or even to go check out that last store. They don't have that service anymore though :(

I think it would depend on the size but in general $2-$5 per gift would be my limit but we also never buy HUGE gifts.

I like it to a point.  I get tired of it my the end, but that's often because I can't find a box!  I probably wouldn't pay for it, because it would be a royal pain to take it somewhere and get it wrapped.  Better to just muddle through, even if it's not perfect.

It's not my most favorite thing to do. When stores offer gift wrapping, i usually let them do it.
