Wrapping Presents

Every holiday season you go on a quest. You search through malls and stores and websites in search of the perfect gift for a loved one. You have to think about what that person wants, what they need, and what’s in your budget. And then you have to wrap up. Wrapping presents makes your gift a little bit more mysterious and that makes it more fun. It’s also an unnecessary gimmick to make department stores a little bit more money. But it’s become tradition and customary, and a gift seems less personal if it’s not wrapped. You don’t even need to use real wrapping paper, the funny pages from the paper make an adequate substitute. I’ve even used grocery store advertisements and brown paper bags for wrapping presents. It only ruined Christmas a little bit.

Gift Card

A gift card is something that you get for someone when you don’t know what to give them. It’s almost as good as cash but not as tacky. You know that your mom likes to read but you don’t know which crappy murder mysteries she’s already read. Boom, gift card. You know that your brother likes music but doesn’t like paying for it. Boom, gift card. You just realized five minutes ago that it’s your best friend’s birthday. Boom, gift card. Shopping for people sucks. Let them choose what they want. Get them a gift card and be done with it.
