Have a Christmas wrapping party
December 03, 2009
After you've spent hours hunting bargains, comparison shopping and trying to remember your nephew's shoe size, having to spend more time wrapping your presents can feel like too much of a chore.
To make it more fun, invite friends over for a present-wrapping party.
Ask everyone to bring one or two rolls of wrapping paper, and request a variety. (Some papers will work best for the kids on your list, while fancier paper is more appropriate for friends.)
Before everyone shows up, make a trip to a crafts store and pick up a slew of ribbons, bows, tape and gift tags. Pick out a variety so that there's something for every type of gift. Throw on some holiday music and serve a few seasonal cocktails, like an eggnog martini or Irish cream on the rocks.
To make the party even more interesting, have a rap battle while you work. You heard us have a rap battle. Throw on some Jay-Z and see who actually knows all the words to 99 Problems, or have a freestyle contest and hand out party favors to the winner.
Wrapping presents has never been so much fun.
