Happy Wrapping Day December 24, 2010

Posted by Beth in Personal.

‘And the paper WAS festooned with pictures of Frosty the Snowman.

And Joseph WAS going to throweth it away, but Mary saideth unto him, she saideth, `Holdeth it! That is nice paper! Saveth it for next year!’

And Joseph DID rolleth his eyeballs.

And the baby Jesus WAS more interested in the paper than, for example, the frankincense.’

“But these words do not appear in the Bible, which means that the very first Christmas gifts were NOT wrapped. This is because the people giving

those gifts had two important characteristics:

1. They were wise.

2. They were men.”

Dave Barry via GVH

I am not one to spend a lot of time wrapping Christmas presents. Mostly because they just get lost in the jumble underneath the tree. I can however appreciate the thought and the beauty of a well-wrapped gift and had quite a bit of fun searching for these images on the internet.

Sometimes, it’s all in discovering the right paper and bow:

Other times, simplicity itself becomes an artful display:

Or, the right placement of one unusal ornament:

Or unusual materials:



A scarf    

A door hanger

Or just the creative use of ribbon:

Some can feel like one of a kind:

Others are a new way to present an old gift:

For those who want the “homemade” loook

but without the actual bother of doing it,

check out CrapWrap: “a wrapping service so shoddy the gift’s recipient will be left in no doubt that her partner did it himself”

(A perfect example for Carpe Diem’s Market’s in Everything)


For those of you with time, and a creative flair…


But no matter how you wrap your presents,

be sure to wrap yourselves in friends and family.

That’s what this season is truly all about.

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year.

Peace on Earth. Good will toward men.
