I would pay that. But, it may make more sense to charge by the size of the item; a large box takes more time than a small box with a piece of jewelry.
Quoting A.J.s_mommy:$1 per gift? I honestly have no clue. I hate wrapping gifts.
I haven't the first clue. Sorry.
It seems reasonable to me.
I would have the minimum as a dollar and go up from there depending on the size of the gift
I honestly don't see why anyone would pay for present wrapping if they have to provide the materials. I would say $3 small $4 medium $5 large and $7 x-large if you are providing the paper, ribbons, etc.

How long would it take you to wrap a gift? if wrapping one gift takes you 15 minutes then $1 is way too low. Your time is worth something more than $1. So let's say you wrap 4 presents in an hour. (I'm using low values to make the math easier) That's only $4 for that hour. Definitely not worth your time. You want to at LEAST make the equivalent of minimum wage. So if minimum wage is $8, and it takes you 15 minutes to wrap 1 present, you need to charge at least $2 per gift to make it. Of course, I'm sure you'd like to make a little more than minimum wage.
If it were me, I would go by volume. If a person wants 8 gifts wrapped and all are medium to large and I know it's going to take me about 2 hours, I would charge $20 for the lot. More if they want added embellishments like ribbons and custom bows etc.
