You could probably get away with 'nice udders" anything else would be going to far

Have the store do it when possible, otherwise I struggle thru it. Not my favorite part of the holiday for sure. My better half makes fancy ribbons and bows and such, makes it harder to snoop.

I am one of those people that takes as much pride in the wrapping of the gift as the gift itself. I wrap all of our gifts as nicely as I can and then add ribbon and a nice bow. Then if it doesn't look right I'll unwrap it and redo it.

I try to find paper that is of a theme that the little ones like, for instance, Spiderman, strawberry shortcake and etc.

I also use the gift bags for special items.

I wrap gifts as soon as I buy them, then I keep a master list.
