Well, I am DREADING all the wrapping..LOL!!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have finished all the shopping, and its now 8pm..I must wrap everything tonight as I am off to my sisters tomorrow...Its all sitting in the laundryroom in millions of bags just waiting for me...

I DON'T WANNA WRAP!!! I can't bring myself to start...Its such a chore with a cat....She just sits on the paper, then bites it, then rips it, then bites the bows....etc...

Anyone else dreading the wrapping with the kits around?

I just stuff things in bags if the cats or dogs drag them out I can just stuff them right back in. Much easier then wrapping.

Well at least you were smart about it and waited until the last minute. I did my wrapping a week ago and Sydney spent he whole week chewing all the bows off

I think gift bags are the easy way to go. If there is a store called Tuesday Morning nearby (for future reference!!) they have the best prices-esp "after Christmas"!! Have fun and Neil and my sister are wrapping as I type this!

I actually was smart enough to hide the gifts in a closet where Trout couldn't get at them...If I don't do that, they would be toast too

Gift bags are great for adults...but watching a kid open one doesn't seem right..LOL They need to rip things open

I did ok this year by doing it on the dining room table where I've trained the cats to stay off the table. Last year, I wasn't so lucky. http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b3...cyPresents.jpg

I lock them out of one of the studies and wrap gifts in there! I did manage to do a few in the living room with a bit of scolding.

I always have my boyfriend distract the kitties while I wrap the first time. Then I put the presents under the tree and then I have to rewrap like half of them from the biteing an stuff under the tree.

So, out went the ribbon

Mine are all done, but what were you thinking using ribbon! Mine have been pulling gift tags and tissue paper out of the gifts all week.

I work in the utility room. My wrappings are on top of the washer and dryer. I actually wrap on the ironing board. And the finished stuff sits on the freezer. And nobody pays me the slightest attention. I think that might be different if I used one larger space for the whole activity, but I don't know. It does simplify matters, but I feel a little cheated.

I'll wrap for you! I LOVE wrapping gifts!!
I usually cut off a piece of wrapping paper for the boys to play with while I'm wrapping the rest, and they usually don't bother me while I'm doing mine!
