It's genetic, live with it...embrace the difference. You're meant to hunt and fight, not wrap presents like a panty-waist.

you know those little fancy shmancy bags with handles? you can get them at Hallmarks or some other girly store (just sneak in and out fast). well i got all my presents in them. i swear they were made for guys. you can get them with the crap decoration for the season/occasion. lifesavers they are. yup. just drop the presents inside. and voila! youre done!

I'm pretty good with ribbon curls.....

I suck at wrapping too. I usually just toss it in a pretty bag, and throw some tissue paper on top of it. Problem solved.

I prefer the bag part as well... Saves time and hassle...

My wife says I'm really good at wrapping presents... Somehow I ended up wrapping all of them. Oh well... I do kind of like wrapping... Hell, I like mowing, painting, and lots of other mundane junk...

Probably not. The real trick to wrapping gifts is determining how much paper to use. Just roll out the paper. Lay the gift on the paper at the edge. Then roll the gift over 4 times towards the cardboard center. Then cut about 2 more inches towards the cardboard core. Lay the gift face down in the center of the paper. Bring one edge of the paper to the center of the back. Tape it. Then bring the other edge to the back and tape it.

wrapping present? This is one of the many reasons I got married... [:D] Her presents? That what the girls at the stores are for.

1) I can wrap gifts like a pro (not a fag) 2) If you're inept, just play it up by botching a couple of wrapping jobs and your wife/GF will take over (after saying something like 'you can't even wrap a gift right') 3) The bags are more expensive but totally worth it. Just make sure to stuff some of that tissue paper stuff into the top to make it all artsy, and so they can't just look down into the bag and see what it is.

Second on the Spray Paint! I wonder if anyone will think I'm weird because I wrapped gifts in used up African battlepack bags!

THAT'S IT! I hate going in those places...but we all have to make sacrifices. Move quickly and they won't recognize you. I couldn't wrap a damn present if my life depended on it. That's what womenz are for anyway...right? [;D] Just women huh Bub! (Miz LWilde applying grievous bodily harm!) [stick] Ooooh...owww...ouch!

None of you guys has a local mall with highschoolers wrapping presents for a fundraiser? I got an assload of gifts wrapped for around $25 and they did a far better job than me or Mrs. Gunbert had been doing. It's worth it, but you have to haggle with them a little bit... the more stuff you have the better the prices, so load up before you go!
