Simply Wrapped

How do you wrap Christmas gifts that are going to be mailed or piled under a tree?  I usually stick with paper and a tag for these gifts.  Simple...it just makes since. Too much in the way of ribbons and bows would just get messed up.  However, I often spend way too much time picking out the wrapping paper.  After all, it has to be just right...right?!

But there are occasions that I spend as much time planning the packaging as I do deciding on the gift.  Like gift giving at office Christmas parties, and gift exchanges with close friends.  Or sometimes an extra special gift needs extra special wrappings, even if it's going to be mailed or stuffed under the tree.  I even have a Pinterest board called "Packaging is Everything"

But is it....everything I mean?

"Christmas Encouragement" Summary Sentence, Day 2:

"The greatest gift was given in 
the most humble of settings."

"And this is the sign unto you: 
Ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 
and lying in a manger."  Luke 2:12
