Gift Wrapping Tips For Men

This is the Christmas Season, a time for joy, family and merriment. It’s also a time for shopping, cooking, trimming the tree, stringing lights, becoming EXHAUSTED, and let’s not forget the most TRYING thing of all…WRAPPING a Buzillion Xmas gifts.

Now understand, in years past, I, (Being a super woman), would sit down after work for HOURS and just wrap and wrap and wrap. Finally…I got smart and decided to invite several of my coworkers (Men) to come to my house for a Gift Wrapping Party. I would provide the necessary alcoholic beverages and food, and in return, THEY would wrap my Christmas presents… WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

What I discovered was…Men are TERRIBLE at wrapping gifts. Sorry guys but it’s true. You SUCK at it. Now I can understand why my girlfriends all bitch about their husbands or significant others gift wrapping abilities. ALL they, (My girlfriends) wanted was a little help, as it turned out, they wound up RE-Wrapping all the presents.

Not to fear though guys ‘cause Gift Wrapper Extraordinaire Sooz is gonna give you some helpful tips on how to wrap presents.

1.   Have Them Wrapped at the STORE by a WOMAN!!! This way, you CAN’T make any mistakes. If anyone bitches about it, all you have to say is “Hey…it was that damn Bimbo at the store’s fault, SHE wrapped them.”

2.   Stay Sober--I know, I know, that is asking a lot, BUT, Believe me, the end result will look a lot better than that crumpled up piece of paper, cut all wrong, string tied disaster, sloppy labeling piece of S***T  you call gift wrapped.

3.   Watch How Much Paper and Tape You Use--Many of you guys believe that more is better…BUZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!! By using too much paper or tape, you make the gift look like…Well…A GUY wrapped it. Use just enough paper that is needed to cover the gift and then SPARINGLY use the tape. Remember…You are NOT getting a car ready to paint.

4.   Ribbons and Bows--Again guys, LESS is more. Don’t have fifteen different bows on a present the size of a yo yo. Wrap the gift as described above, then add ONE bow. GOT IT???

After practicing these tips for a while, you will become just as adept at wrapping presents as we are. Hope this helped you and have a very happy holiday.

Until Later…

    I have to disagree with tip #2. The way some men wrap presents, it would look the same regardless if they where sober or drunk. Just be more enjoyable wrapping presents drunk.

    I’m a terrible wrapper. I used to struggle with wrapping everything, even the simplest gifts like small square-shaped ones. Then I discovered one of the greatest inventions ever: gift bags. I haven’t wrapped a gift in years. I even reuse the bags, so they’re environmentally friendly (that’s the excuse I use).

      Ya mean there is NO merit badge for gift wrapping? I think they should ADD it, don’t YOU?

    AHAHAHA… is it just me or does it sound as though you were up to no good? Inviting specifically men over and giving them drinks and food. You were looking for more than just having your Christmas presents wrapped. Sleep well…
