Seriously!!! My new rule for Christmas is if it doesn't come in a box we're not buying it. Either that or Santa is investing in gift bags next year. Screw the gold wrapping paper.

I sell Avon so I have a ton of the boxes they ship the stuff in. Most of my gifts are all the same size no matter what is in them. I've had a few that were shipped to me so I open them and take out the packing slip and tape them back up and wrap. I have a whole collection of perfect box shaped presents :)

Right    !   We end up taking the all the  ties and stuff off  before we wrap them ,  I mean really  what lil kid should have to fight with his box for 20 min to play with the toy  !!! .

just do like my mom does, get a huge box and fill it with bags of rocks and put the little weird shaped thing in the bottom under all the rocks. (as long as it won't break obviously) she did this to me in high school lol. its funny and then you don't have to try to wrap the weird shape :)
