Two words = Gift bags. One of the greatest inventions of the last century.

I am crazy bad at wrapping gifts, when I do it, it looks like a four year old did it (actually, they could do a better job). 

I’m with meliss…I <3 me some gift bags!  😀

Um yes!  I suck at wrapping gifts.  I seriously considered telling DH to wrap his own gift after I put it in a box.  I settled with crappy wrapping instead.  I can’t even cut the paper straight, it’s that bad.

LMAO, I don’t even TRY to make it look pretty anymore. As long as all parts of the present are covered with wrapping paper, I consider it a success.

@meliss: @Lorienne: but gift bags aren’t nearly as much fun to open!

I was wrapping a present last night and i literally cut the paper an entire INCH too small…I actually started laughing with FI and then started crying in frustration! Well he saved the day and cut a magical strip of wrapping paper and made it nice and pretty again. I SUCK at wrapping presents…and it takes me a good 30 min per present…FI does it in 5 minutes and it looks ten times better then mine. UGH.

I LOVE gift wrapping! I used to work at a store with a gift registry. Gifts purchased off a registry got free gift wrapping during weekend sales. I used to sit at a table surrounded by gifts, wrapping paper, and ribbon for 8 hours at a time and I was happy as a clam.

If I could, I would wrap all your presents for you!

I can totally wrap a present and make it look decent…but as for the ribbon…NO WAY! I can’t do it, I never have been able to! That’s when I get lazy and slap a bow on 😉

I cut up magazines or rip out pages of pretty things or stuff that might sort of hint what the gift is for and just tape it to the present.  I never had wrapping paper around and never was great at wrapping anyways and people love (or at least all seem to get a kick out of, they might just be laughing at me) all the pictures their gift is covered in.

I stopped at the local discount store on my way home from work and practically had to engage in hand-to-hand combat to get to the gift bag section.  But now I’m all stocked up, so I suppose it was worth it…

@kitzy: LOL, I can assure you a gift bag is more fun to open than a gift I attempted to wrap myself and looks like it came from a dumpster.
