I am not the present wrapper in our home.
I use too much tape, don't properly crease or tuck corners, and generally end up satisfied as long as the gift is completely covered in paper. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is a present-wrapping perfectionist. He uses neat tape squares, different folding methods, and will redo a present until it's perfect. I'm glad he hasn't caught on to aligning paper patterns, because then Christmas would never come.
But this year I have a secret wrapping weapon: gingerbread gift tag cookies. With a little royal icing, some patience, and some piping gel, my presents might come out on top this year.
Just tie them onto your present ribbon and you have festive edible 2-in-1 gift tags! They also look adorable as edible tree decorations.
Happy holidays, everyone!
