    While picking up wrapping paper from my son's birthday, it JUST dawned on me how my mother and grandmother would want us to open up our Christmas/Birthday gifts EVER so carefully (the parents usually did it with a knife) so that after the holiday my mother (when I got older, I remember doing...

    I really really stink at wrapping presents. It's not as bad as it used to be. However, it could be better.

  15. Christmas
    I do use a few gift bags but I think presents should be wrapped unless they are just to oddly shaped to wrap. My sister hates wrapping and only uses gift bags. I have made small homemade gift bags before for small gifts, and I love wrapping gifts in brown paper and making my own bows.
