It pains me to use ugly wrapping paper and ribbon. Real, physical pain that I’d rather come up with some lame excuse as to why the present is unwrapped. Back in the day, my mom used to make me practice wrapping gifts and tying bows. I used to think she was crazy, but now I see the method to the madness. Or as my husband says, you are crazy just like your mama. LOL.
I easily have 60+ rolls of wrapping paper, thousands of yards of ribbon, gift tags for every occasion… and that’s about as far as I’m willing to estimate. No need to put a value on this. Before I buy a gift, I factor in the wrap-ability. I’ve passed up on gifts before if I can’t figure out how to wrap it. And all this will be passed down to Charlotte. 😉
Here she is — picked out the wrapping and tape all on her own.
