I ugly wrapped this year. On purpose. My grandmother would be mortified. But I did it for Babu, who would be pleased, I think, and also maybe a bit mortified. Here is the result:
Yes, I wrapped Christmas presents in Birthday, Anniversary, any other holiday paper. I was delighted to wrap a present for my 14 year old nephew in “to the bride” paper. Some of the paper was so old it was almost disintegrating as I wrapped. But here is the important part. As you know if you know this family at all, everything is saved, reused, nothing is wasted. While cleaning out this house I found old, mostly used, wrapping paper in a cabinet. Some of it is retro and really quite cool. So, I decided to use it this year to make Babu happy that I didn’t just throw it away and also, as a way to keep her close. My family was very kind and accepting of this rather odd gesture.
Sorry not sorry I ugly wrapped this year.
