I'm hopeless when it comes to wrapping presents. They always come out looking like a first-grader did the job, using odd bits of tape to hold down randomly buckled areas of paper. I'm also stubborn enough to do it myself every year, because that's part of my gift too: that I went to the trouble of wrapping it myself so you can laugh at me and my inept pretty paper skills.

I believe the ladies have something in their DNA that lets them whoof out beautifully done giftwrapping without effort, which annoys the hell out of me.

I also believe though, that I've found the perfect solution. Better than those tacky gift bags or pre-folded boxes even. You will never hear a guy complain or kid you about your wrapping job if you put his gift inside a toolbox.

1 One of my two brothers has come up with a way to avoid the whole gift-wrapping-by-a-guy dilemma; he brings all his gifts to my mom's house and has one of his three sisters do the wrapping for him. Since this usually happens in the midst of all the xmas eve party madness.

Merry Christmas and and Happy New Year to you and your family.

3 Don't worry dad, I suck at wrapping too. I think it's a DNA thing, not a gender thing.

4 I also suck at wrapping, so I think Mookie is right. Maybe we are distantly related?
