What will most of your Christmas presents be packaged in?
Wrapped package
Gift box
Gift bag

For us it will be sloppily wrapped presents as usual.... smile

This year they are wrapped except for the ones that cant be wrapped, those are bagged. The only reason they are wrapped is because my girlfriend offered to wrap them, if not for that they would be bagged or draped with a sheet.

Aluminium foil. Tends to hold its shape which makes wrapping easier.

Honestly.. I'm exceptionally lazy when it comes to gifts. I generally order all of them off Amazon and don't even bother wrapping the box. LOL That is, unless my wife tells me that I can't do that and wraps them for me. thumbsup

For the family members under 10 we wrap because it's fun to watch them rip and tear. For everyone else we use bags.

I prefer to use bags but Iím cheap so theyíll probably be wrapped. Before I was married I always saved gift bags I received gifts in to reuse. Now that Iím married with kids thereís not much room in the house and my wife thinks Iím a hoarder already, so they get thrown out.

I wrap gifts in brown paper, news paper or white packing paper.

My friendly question is, "Do you want a better gift or fancy paper?"

The last few years we have been wrapping them in material, like scarves etc. Someone unwraps a present, someone else discretly picks up the scarf and disapears, comes back with a present to give to someone else. It's working great, no more paper to get rid of.

I wrap them. No mistaking my work, won't even need to add my name. Wife snags new paper every year when it goes on sale after the holidays.
