To pick up gift wrapping materials in hopes I can wrap my wife’s presents before December 25th. The hard-to-wraps gifts–like beef jerky and live bait—become stocking stuffers. Let me know if I missed any necessary gift-wrapping supplies:
- Duct Tape
- Bailing Wire
- Gorilla Glue
- Vice Grips
- Unbleached Muslin
- Box with holes in it for surprise hamster gift (This year’s “big” present).
- Seed and Feed promo sweatshirt for Race Ready horse feed. I might wrap the hamster in it.
- A box of Mason jars. (They camouflage the diamonds, rubies, and gold jewelry.)
- Fire ants (for the gag gift).
- Palmetto bugs (for the other gag gift).
- Binder’s Twine
- Pop rivets
- Kraft paper
- Rope (right-handed laid three-strand).
The love with which we give our spouses’ Christmas gifts is often shown by the care taken to wrap everything. So I travel to the ends of the earth buying $10000000 worth of gift-wrapping materials for $38.30 worth of presents. Everyone does this, don’t you think?
I haven’t yet figured out how my wife can come into the living room, look at the presents beneath the tree, and instantly know which ones I wrapped. It’s a mystery to me.
