My wife once worked at one of those gift-wrapping kiosks in the mall.
I did not.
I’m not saying I couldn’t have, but it was probably for the best.
I’ve always wrapped presents myself. For the most part I think I’ve done pretty well with it, too. I like the crisp lines and the angles and the strategically placed strips of tape. I take pride in a tight, tidy package. Especially with CDs. They’re kind of a pain to wrap, and everyone knows what they are before they open them, but there’s some satisfaction in seeing that little square, sharp corners and all.
That said, sometimes you just don’t care what it looks like, ya know? And that’s not a one-handed thing; that’s a human being thing. Throw it in a bag and be done with it.
I hope your gift-wrapping experiences go off without a hitch this year!
