Wrapping gifts sucks.  Is it just me, or are guys notorious for being bad at it? 

I decided to switch things up and instead of using boring old Christmas paper, I'm using newspaper. 

I'm not sure if I should wrap the gift cards I got.  I think it seems sort of boring to just hand them an unwrapped plastic card, but then again it seems pointless to hand them a wrapped plastic card.

See if your mall offers free wrapping(mine does). Just appear there with
arm loads of presents and tell them to wrap them.

If they question you, tell them there was a family emergency when you
were there yesterday and had to leave.

Solves two problems. It doesn't take up your time, and it won't look like
crap.

I've gotten good at it over the years as my mom always made me help her out when I was younger and my dad pawns the job off to me to wrap my
mom's presents.

I don't struggle with wrapping too much, but if I'm lazy I'll just throw it in a bag I've gotten before with tissue paper or whatever.

I like aerosol wrapping paper. Some people call it "rubberized undercoating",

I suck BAD at wrapping gifts.

Maybe because I never wrapped gifts before.

I never bought anyone anything because I am a failure, but this year I had to get some stuff for my niece so I wrapped it.
Que pasa?

Order wrapping paper from tshirthell next year.

It's funny/offensive enough that it won't matter how bad your wrapping job is.

I have gotten pretty good at wrapping gifts over the years.  My Wife insists on me wrapping hers.  I have a handicap however, I have a 7 year old and a 2 year old helping me... what should take me 30 mints will take me about 2 hours.
