Have you wrapped your presents yet?

It seems easy.
Now, if only he showed how to wrap a bottle of spirit or tin of Quality Street Embarrassed
For smaller presents I used to make my own crackers using the remains of a toilet or kitchen roll. I also used to do the same for my daughter as my granddad did for me as a child; a box, within another box, within another... each wrapped up separately.
SWMBO uses so much tape it's extremely hard to rip off.
How do you wrap yours or do you leave it to someone else? SWMBO does all ours these days.

Wrapped no way i've not even bought any yet.
SWMBO is a real pain to buy for. Experience days don't get used, jewellery doesn't get worn, DVDs don't get watched.. ok book vouchers actually get used but i can't keep doing that every birthday / christmas can i ?  Crazy
Nope.. absolutely stumped this year.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Don't see why not. Every year my daughter gives me a list of books she wants and I get between 5 and 10 depending on total cost.
SWMBO then gets something else and we tell her it's all from both of us.

SWMBO buys me books........books she wants to read,
I buy her books  ........books I want to read.  
One simple rule ..................you cannot read the book you have bought until the other person has read it.
When - Christmas eve. Wrapping - secondhand bookseller does it all.
