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…..
- 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.
