In laws wrap eggs. Spent yesterday afternoon wrapping eggs and tying ribbon round them.

Dp can do it next year as I think it is daft! It's an egg! No surprise, why wrap it?!?

grin That's hilarious!!

Nope, no joke! I have contested it before but we cannot possibly take then round in a carrier bag unwrapped (how my family receive them)

gamerchick Sun 20-Apr-14 08:44:20

Why did you even start wrapping them?

FruVikingessOla Sun 20-Apr-14 08:44:37

How bonkers tbugrin

I guess it is in the interests of giftwrap shops if we do so they probably present the concept of wrapping eggs as something posh people and slebs do. Madness.

MoonRover Sun 20-Apr-14 08:45:11

Eggs come ready wrapped!

How daft.

CheesyBadger Sun 20-Apr-14 08:47:56

Gamerchick... I asked myself the same question. This is the last year!

They all love arts, painting, drawing, fashion, so possibly it is like making works of art? We put them in front of the fireplace and hand them out like at Christmas grin

What do they wrap them in? Birthday wrapping paper?

I used to ersp eggs in tissue paper when I did easter egg hunts in the garden.

Not proper wrapping up of boxed eggs though tbugrin

Patterned paper, bows, ribbon, sometimes charm things, gift tags, funky tape

Ours are pretty plain in comparison but wrapped none the less.

Massive family tradition

Wrapped eggs?

Crazy.

fuck that! i barely even bothered to hide them from DS this year, and i think i'm the only shit mum who wasnt up at the crack of dawn this morning hiding eggs in the garden.

can't get into easter at all and have never heard of wrapping easter eggs. my very posh auntie doesn't wrap them so i don't think it's a posh thing.

Of course you don't wrap Easter eggs! That would be daft. shock

You choose whether or not to wrap eggs you give, your inlaws choose whether or not to wrap eggs they send. Wrapping them sounds like a waste of paper to me. You don't have to do things yourinlaws way. leave them to it and just tell them you don't wrap eggs if you give them an egg. Your husband can wrap eggs if he feels strongly about it, it's his tradition not yours.

gamerchick Sun 20-Apr-14 08:57:38

Well if it's a tradition.. I suppose you're stuck grin

We barely do easter.

Is there Easter wrapping paper now!? What about a gift bag with scrunched up tissue if it's compulsory?
