Get butcher paper bags and let the kids paint. Lazy and cute wrapping! -Brenay, Normal in the House

I drive presents I ordered online to the mall so I can get them gift wrapped. -Alison, Sparkly Shoes and Sweat Drops
I buy the same children’s book for all the little kids I know. This year, it’s “She Persisted.” I also order them gift wrapped by the local bookstore. -Rina, Finding Dutchland
