Did You Know That Amazon Does This During The Holidays?
ARE YOU A PROFESSIONAL GIFT WRAPPER?
Some people love to wrap presents. I don't mind, but my presents aren't the most beautifully wrapped. I have relatives that LIVE for holiday wrapping, whether it be Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, you name it. They are so perfectly wrapped, I hate to open the gifts because what's inside couldn't possibly match the outstanding wrapping, ribbons, and sparkles of the package.
FIRST TIME TRYING THIS SERVICE
That's why this year, I ordered some of my gifts online. I thought about having them wrapped in the past, as it is an offering from some companies, but I've never done it, thinking it might look super cheap.
A NICE SURPRISE
I was pleasantly surprised last week when I ordered these gifts from Amazon, and this time, I selected, "Please gift wrap." I believe I paid $5 extra dollars to have these gifts wrapped, but when I received them yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised.
Each was in a beautiful package, that included a ribbon and even a bright happy card attached.
Not only can you have them gift wrapped, but they can also, of course, ship them directly to the person you want to receive them. I sent them to myself, just to make sure the gift wrap wasn't tacky because if it was, I definitely was going to re-wrap them before sending the gifts to the receiver.
OTHER WRAPPING OPTIONS
I have to say, there is another option that I always recommend. If a local charity is wrapping for a cause, like Tri-County Humane Society, I will bring all my gifts to them, and have them wrapped, and make a donation to my favorite charity for wrapping. I've never been disappointed with this option as well.
