Most guys I know are terrible at gift wrapping. SO is actually pretty good if it’s a normal shaped box. But, if it’s not, or it won’t fit in a box, he’ll just wrap it as is. This is the result of aforementioned ‘won’t fit in a box’ :
Hahaha! Hmmmm, wonder what that is? Lol!
Let’s have it, bees, show off your SO’s wrapping skills!

OMG best thread idea ever.
Santa, (aka.My FI) is upstairs wrapping my gifts now. I imagine some electrical tape will be used.

haha! That’s a funny pic. At least he added ribbon to it.
Actually the DH is a pretty good wrapper. He likes putting ribbon and ornaments on his gifts.
I just slap on one of those sticky cheap looking bows. Yeah, whenever I need something wrapped. I just give it to him. lol

My husband won’t let me see mine because apparently he wrapped them all as is and I could easily guess what they were! He wanted me to go in our bedroom for awhile while he wrapped my gifts so he could “spread out”. After being in there for like an hour I asked him if he was done and he’s like “Well, I’ve wrapped 4 3/4 and I had 4 left!”

For 6 years, FI has always just put my gifts in multiple layers of plastic bags, taped up the top, and tied a ribbon around it. It’s quite sad, but absolutely hilarious!
Man, I wish I had a pic…I’ll be sure to take one tomorrow! 🙂

@panterapeach: Puh-lease sneak a pic of any electrical tape adorned gifts!
@Treasure43: Show us the results if you can 🙂
@neohippie88: I would love to see that! And I’m sure other bees wouldn’t mind a good laugh, either!

Haha! My bf wrapped my gift alright but I noticed that he didn’t write anything on the tag. He said, “I didn’t write on it because I thought you might want to use it for something else.” Ummm…then why did you stick it on my present?? So weird!

I need to take a picture in the morning.
FH filled nalgene like water bottles (I told him mason jars would make a nicer presentation but oh well) with homemade candied pecans for my side of the family. My party line when we were wrapping gifts together “Well… that’s not how I would wrap them….”
It just… doesn’t look quite right.

I can’t wait to see some more photos, what a great idea!
When DH and I first started dating, he must not have had any wrapping paper around because he wrapped my gift in a poncho..yep, a poncho. Too funny!

DH does not wrap well and he creatively hides that fact. One year, he got me a gift certificate for a weekend getaway which he could roll like a diploma and tie a bow on. One year, he asked his mom to wrap for him (it was our first Christmas), last year we got each other wedding rings which were not ready to go under the tree and this year, I received a beautifully wrapped present which was wrapped by the store at which he bought it.
