The Gift Wrapping Drinking Game

I am dreadful at wrapping gifts. I start with good intentions of making them look pretty, but about one and a half parcels in I am bored of the whole idea and just wish the wrapping fairy would do it for me while I have a snooze in front of a Christmas film. Someone on twitter suggested I get drunk while doing it. Then I thought why not make it a game?! Now I haven’t even done this myself yet….still putting off the inevitable wrapping paper hell. (Yes, I know I only have 40 hours left….). And certainly I take no responsibility for either the state of your gifts or your liver should you choose to give this a go. But anyway, here is what I am thinking, please add your suggestions in the comments…..

The Gift Wrapping Drinking Game
  • A slurp each time you misplace the scissors.
  • A swig every time you lose the end of the Sellotape.
  • A shot of something fortifying when you are faced with wrapping something awkward in shape. A ball for example. Or slippers. 
  • And down in one every time you cut the paper too small.


You can judge how well it went by the state of my hangover in the morning….

    Great idea! I need to send the other half out for some sherry before I get started though.

    Brilliant idea! As a teetotaller I would adapt it to involve eating chocolate. As I’m forever misplacing the Sellotape, I’d have to get a couple of bars of Green & Blacks lined up!

    What a great idea for a game! I’m in the fortunate position of being terrible at wrapping, so even if I got sloshed playing this my wrapping could only improve lol
