Life of Me VIII: Christmas Edition

by - December 22, 2010

I love shopping for other people, regardless of what time of year it is. Whether it's for Christmas, a birthday or just because, I absolutely love picking out a gift that's just right. I get positively giddy over the prospect.

But there is one thing I have to confess...I hate wrapping. And I pretty much suck at it.

I always end up with tape stuck to everything but the package I'm wrapping. I can't cut my wrapping paper straight. Chances are I end up with a paper cut or I pinch my fingers between the handles of the scissors. And making those cool folded things on the ends? You can forget about that. Mine always come out looking like it was wrapped by someone without thumbs.

I'm also bad about giving away the surprise because I get so excited about what I bought. I've already almost told the boyfriend everything he's getting. And I'm super excited about his gifts.

I'm pretty much an impulse buyer when it comes down to it. I always end up spending more than I should because I see things that remind me of someone and I just have to have it!

 That's the fun of it to me, though. Finding something I know you'll use and enjoy.

Happy Holidays
