I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Christmas filled with family and joy. As Christmas has passed, I’m sure all you good boys and girls received tons of gifts from loved ones. And if you’re like me, you probably noticed something under the tree… You can clearly tell which gifts came from a man or a woman based on how tremendously or how horribly they were wrapped.
Any gift that is neatly wrapped, with clean folded edges and a neat ribbon and bow on top, clearly came from a woman. Any gift that looks like random jagged edges of layered wrapping paper horrendously taped on to a box clearly came from a man, no question.
I mean, I’ve never met a man who could properly wrap gifts. Myself included. Gifts wrapped by women always look like beautiful, flawless works of art. And they do it with such effortless elegance. Now, have you ever met a man who could impeccably wrap gifts? Never. It’s horrendous. Gifts wrapped by men come out all crinkled and jagged edged, like a kindergarten art project. Seriously, my gift wrapping skills never progressed passed pre-school.
That’s why I always opt for the in-store wrapping. But, if I have to wrap gifts, I usually go the “burrito method” and put the gift in the middle of way too much wrapping paper and then fold it in like I’m a Chipotle employee. Trying to keep that Nordstrom box in the wrapping paper like frijoles in a tortilla. No wonder Santa has the elves and Mrs. Claus doing all the wrapping. If it were up to him, my gifts would look like they had already been unwrapped and the rewrapped again with the same unevenly cut paper and overly-taped box.
Plus, have you ever seen a man put a bow or a ribbon on a box? No, not once. I think one Christmas, my old-school Grandfather gave me a pair of socks wrapped in newspaper. If you want your gifts wrapped, ask a man. If you want your gifts wrapped right, ask a woman.
