We love gift wrapping!

I thought I was one of the best wrappers I knew..Until I met Evan. For my birthdays and Christmas, he has wrapped my gift in maps, fabric, craft paper, painter’s paper… When I would receive his gifts and handmade cards, I’d imagined it was like one of the Ryan Gosling memes, “Hey girl.. I thoughtfully wrapped your presents in the nicest gift wrap and later I’ll take you dinner.” That’s why I call him a Unicorn!

For my own gifts, I think it takes me about 10 minutes per present. But it’s so much fun to me.

Here’s some ideas for wrapping gifts

Some tricks

If you run out or don’t have a big enough wrapping paper, get some craft or painter’s paper and then use the wrapping over it, like we did here.
