Every gift I received this year was in some way or another taped to the package. Is it that hard to hold the first section while to fold and tape on the second?

I tape because it looks nicer when you do - the first piece of tape holds the package in place when you go to fold the sides of the gift. Plus, 100 years ago I worked as a buyers assistant at Fortunoff here on Long Island & had to cover in gift wrap during the holidays. All the wrappers were taught to wrap that way.

You have to tape it to get it to keep from looking like a piece of shit after you're done.

It's all a conspiracy - all of your loved ones decided to ruin your Christmas by taping the first section of the paper to the package.

Yup, they're all out to get you :rolleyes:

I do it that way also, and it still looks like a retarded monkey wrapped the package. I stink. But, I do use the "good" tape that peels right off, not the cheap shit.

It helps to tape it to the gift when you cut the wrapping paper barely enough to fit around the box.

All the stuff I recieved came in a decorative gift bag anyway. Just lift or rummage through the tissue paper and there it is.

Be glad I'm not wrapping it. I'm one of those pricks that tapes it so it's nearly impossible to open without assistance.

more tape is more gooder
I wrapped something in duct tape once. Put a layer of outward facing duct tape around the item first so none would stick to it, then wrapped an entire full sized roll of duct tape around it. :D

No wonder you didn't get any christmas gifts. Your family is probably still pissed at you. :action-sm

They aren't so much pissed about the wrapping job as they are pissed about getting Hillbilly Jim dolls for Christmas.

Everyone who wraps gifts in a department storewraps that way. The other secret is double sided tape. I like crisp edges and hidden tape.

I do something of that nature to my son every year. I haven't used duct tape yet. Sounds like fun. :icon_evil

I was thinking the same things. I wasn't going to be a dick and point it out though. :action-sm

Ah, we all got stupid shit that pisses us off. For me, it's the asshole driving in front of me who flips his cigarette out his window. It shouldn't bug me, but it makes me want to accelerate, slam into his car, force him off the road, shove a pen in his jugular and burn his eyes with cigarettes until he's done bleeding out. Again, that's just me though.

I hope you get better wrapped presents next year.
