I'll be honest. . . I have always been a member of the "why spend so much time elegantly wrapping gifts, when the wrapping is only going to be thrown away" club. Let's face it, my father just wants his Whopper candies, he doesn't care if I wrap them with bakers twine, a grosgrain bow and a Chalk Talk tag! Trust me on this one. The man wouldn't probably even notice if it was wrapped in duct tape!
But, I'm slowly evolving and appreciating the art of gift wrapping.
There is something about presenting someone a simple treat - candies, cookies or even gift cards that looks infinitely better when all "dressed up."
It goes from "here's your candy" to "HEEEERE'S your candy!"
