Hey all!
What is the poem for the clear wrapping paper for the shower?

Would you recomend this? I'm trying to decide if I should do this. What are your thoughts?

BE a Dear and Wrap in Clear


I would recommend this if you are having a lot of people at your shower. I had about 60 people and I didn't unwrap 1 gift - my girls did it for me and just showed it to me. So save your girls all the unwrapping and wrap in clear!

Hey Babe!!!!!!!!!!! I personally don't like the "be a dear, wrap in clear" thing. I LOVE seeing all the gifts all wrapped up with all the bows and bells and whistles!!! I know it's a lot to unwrap everything, but it's part of the fun! I also LOVE to wrap and go out of my way to get paper in the bride's color if it's a close friend, and wrap the gifts to the nines! That's just me though!!

ITA - plus some people might get offended if they don't see you "open" there gift

I am inviting 70 people to my shower and I will just make sure I am an unwrapping machine

How funny that is EXACTLY how I am too!!! I take my wrapping VERY seriously!!! During Christmas time i do a theme or at least try to match things and I always buy littl;e gifts to hang off of your real gift. I'm a dork like that!!!

Once again we are the same!!!!

Kerri this is getting to be too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I TOTALLY do this every Christmas!!! I buy all my paper ahead of time, all Hallmark (only the best quality!) and all that coordinate with each other, like 4 different styles. I always hang little candy canes or ornaments off them as well! I love to make little tissue paper tootsie roll type gifts too where you tie the ends haha!

Too f*cking funny!! i never did the tissue paper tootsie roll....... at least not that I'm aware of. haha.. but I've def done the other stuff. I buy wrapping paper ahead of time... and I usually order it online... like hard to find ones.. or the holographic glittery ones... and then get correspinding bows and ribbons... then I hang things. One year I had grinch everything.... (this was like early 2000's) and found grinch keychains and stickers and stuff... so i hung it off the bows. I've def done ornaments too!! and candy canes... did you ever put that little sleve on that looks liek a reindeer!??! its adorable.. ive used those too!!! hahaha!!!

IMO I wouldn't do the clear wrapping paper! One of my most favorite parts of my shower was seeing all the gifts wrapped!!! A lot of people put thought into wrapping a gift! Ever sine 2005 when I lost my older brother I have had a love for butterflies! I cannot tell you how many people found butterfly wrapping paper...and then people wrapped gifts in my wedding colors! People love to buy the gift but I think what they love most is seeing you unwrap it!! I even got butterfly ornaments on some packages that I will be able to have forever! I just think wrapping everything in clear takes away from the surprise of everything! This is just my thoughts on it, I know everyone feels differently! HTH

I actually have never heard of this before? I wouldnt like it though...half the fun is opening your gifts and your guests enjoy watching that, so I would say NAY on this one.

YAY for Physcho Christmas wrappers!!!!

One christmas my BM Jen asked me if I needed help wrapping... so i figured she wouldnt ask if she didnt know how to wrap... and besides how bad could she be... if anything she can wrap the gifts for people who are ehh... haha like work peopel!! hahahaha!! So she comes over and OMG she was HORRIFIC!!! i was wrapping a gift and I kept looking up at her attempting to wrap or whatever you call that sloppyness and just crumbling the paper... OMG it was HORRENDOUS!!! I couldnt help but stare with the look of horror on my face!! haha!! So she notices me... because I was in such shock at what she was doing with my pretty paper and gift presentation.... I just couldnt help but have that look on my face. And I thought.. breath kerri..when she leave you can rewrap it but stop her now before she ruins anymore paper. So she looks at me and giggles and says... "are you going to rewrap this when I leave?" I started cracking up and I was like F*CK YES!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THAT????? hahahaha I was hysterical!! NEVER again can she do anything crafty with me ever!!! hahahaha!!! she is fully banned!
