i'm 22 years old and i still can't wrap a gift for my life. I'd say one out of three gifts actually come out presentable. Please tell me I'm not the only one.

I don't know if you can call throwing newspaper and wrapping paper onto a gift and taping it all up together is "wrapping" it but no, I'm not very good with wrapping gifts.

If I could I would but I'm not leaving college til tomorrow and my connects are all gone. I'm drinking some beers. But in the past I can tell you that toking doesn't help my wrapping skills... Actually wrapping gifts is just something that nothing can help...

I'm gradually getting better, at 22 they look presentable as often as not, as long as they're reasonably conservatively shaped. Weird shapes i'm absolutely hopeless with. Can wrap a bouquet of flowers like a boss though, after working in a grocery store with a floral department the last three mothers days.

I suck at it. I hate wrapping presents, though. I'd rather just ask them what they want, buy it, and give it to them whenever I see them.

they're coming to take me away

Yes this works in some instances more than others.

The mom and girlfriend though, YOU HAVE TO WRAP THEM!

yeah, i might be drunk. i guess you can tell cause i've used a smilie in every post and been chain smoking cigs on UG, instead of finish wrapping the rest of my gifts.

I actually just wrapped my gifts. I used the newspaper I got from the shop in santarém where I bought the gifts. About halfway through I discovered that the newspaper had pictures of naked women on them -.-

A man's idea of wrapping a gift is putting it in a different bag than the one it came in.

The gift that just keeps giving.

I can make them look nice if I really want to, but I don't normally try very hard. It's just going to get torn off anyway.

I know that feel. I usually just wrap paper around the box until its not showing anymore lol

Gift bags and tissue paper are your best friends, so much easier than actually wrapping stuff.

Nice. That's almost as good as how a woman would do it.

I got my mum a new living room for Christmas, I used loads of tinfoil so she'll never guess what it is.


Got my brother some bog roll because he always complains that I use the last of it:


Got my sister a viking cat (haven't finished wrapping):


Got my dad every single member of Abba in their prime:


And my baby brother his own dinosaur:

I wish they made wrapping paper that had print on both sides, as my presents always seem to have white bits on the underside.

I fucking suck at gift wrapping. But since I hardly place my societal value in such an endeavor, I think I'm ok with that. Yes, I am. /nods
