Surely a ceramic pot should be supplied in a box?

Is it really that hard? Someone has been able to wrap a cat, surely a ceramic pot should be a breeze?wink

Hula Hoop today !!

You can wrap hula hoops with LOTS AND LOTS of ribbon grin

I keep all the boxes my mail ordered Christmas presents arrive in for just this purpose, there's always some bonkers shaped thing to wrap. This year a giant Mickey Mouse wins the prize for my worst thing to wrap.

a doll's bunk bed that a) is too wide for the rolls of paper and b) has no surfaces that you can use to press down on the paper.

That and any of those toys in half boxes where you have some squared off bits and then just a flat piece of cardboard with the toy sticking out in front.... I hate those.

I had to wrap a cylindrical box with a diamater of about 30cm this year and it was surprisingly hard.

Nutella.... That cats is so cute, I might have to try doing that with either of ours next time they interfere with my wrapping!

a hula hoop?!

I am yet to attempt to wrap DS3's mini shopping trolley - I am just going to put some ribbon on it lol!

MrsChemistrySetInMyStocking Wed 22-Dec-10 18:59:28

I second woks.

InnocentRedhead Wed 22-Dec-10 19:07:49

My mum must second woks, my parents have got me one for xmas, it is the only thing i know i have :D

A breast. I kid you not. I wrapped presents for my friend who is wrapping challenged and one of her husbands stocking fillers was a breast shaped stress ball. Worst thing I have ever wrapped.

DanceInTheDark Wed 22-Dec-10 22:21:50

a breast? really?!

stillbobbysgirl Wed 22-Dec-10 22:28:11

well a tit wins it i think

i have made the mistake this evening of wrapping all the calendars/boxes of lego/easy ones etc while downing a couple of glasses of wine - now I have the stig bathfoam and the other tricky ones to do and am a bit pished

why oh why didn't do them FIRST? confused

IlanaK Wed 22-Dec-10 22:31:10

The funniest thing about the breast is that it was one of a pair (obviously) in a box that would have been easy to wrap. But she decided to give him only the one.

DanceInTheDark Wed 22-Dec-10 22:31:48

Similar shape to a Tagine lol!

goodmanners Wed 22-Dec-10 22:32:20

oh me and dh have just wrapped dcs things 2 bottles of beer down - a right shower of shite to look at but hey the kids wont mind - buzz was difficult as in an odd shaped box and he kept shouting at dh from inside in spanish as he hit his buttons in error - made for mild entertainment. Guitar yes ii agree tricky - i am sooooooooooooooo excitednow grin

SnowMuchToBits Wed 22-Dec-10 22:34:20

Policeman's helmet is quite hard.....

stillbobbysgirl Wed 22-Dec-10 22:34:45

why did she only give him one tit?
