My hubby and I make a night of it..He is terrible at wrapping but loves to do it with me...We put on a christmas movie...hit Starbucks for cappuccinos and spread out on the floor...takes hours...we have 4 kids..but we love doing that together every year....
OK, which one of you ladies is coming here?? No I do enjoy it however I over buy as I start so early but always wait till the last minute for some reason. You know what I am going to start doing what I have now.
I usually wrap my husbands gifts closer to Christmas when he is at work. Then our kids, him, and I wrap all of our family gifts together throughout the week before Christmas. Finally on Christmas Eve after the kiddos are asleep me and hubby wrap the kids gifts together. We usually watch the Christmas Story movie and wrap, while snacking on popcorn and cocoa, (and candy meant for stockings of course!). We have a great time doing this! We too buy a very unique print in wrapping paper and designate this "Santa's wrapping paper" as well. :)
I love wrapping gifts always have. My hubby hates it, so I get lucky to do all of them. lol. I remember always begging to wrap gifts for my grandma, so she would have to sort through everything in her stash to find what ones i could wrap and the ones i couldnt see. lol.
Apparently I do such a great job my Grandmother and Grandfather has asked me since I was about 12 to wrap all there's for them, I just can't wrap mine, if Grandma has some for Grandpa they come to my house, and same with Grandpa, he brings Grandma's down.
I haven't mastered homemade bows, actually should look that up on You tube. I might do that this year!
