Which gifts are you dreading trying to wrap?


For me it's the Little Tikes Cosy Coupe car! It's going to be so bulky and awkward, and I can imagine accidentally tearing into it when trying to sneak it down the stairs on Christmas Eve!

Any awkwardly shaped gifts you're dreading trying to wrap?

Could you use a bike bag. I saw some in halfords.
I am dreading wrapping the LOL balls and the big LOL thing.

Ooh good idea, thank you! That will be much better than trying to use wrapping paper.

Good luck with the LOL balls!

Yes you get them in Asda, looks like wrapping paper but just goes over the top of big presents, Ive used them for a few of Kayla's big awkward gifts lol

The half open box things in a 3D L shape - no front on it. It makes the paper fold in awkward ways. I don't think I have any other dodgy shapes.

I can't wait to wrap LOL balls! Wrapping/making them into these (with paper):

That's how I wrapped the girls LOL balls for their birthday. Was easy peasy and looked nicer than they would have otherwise.

I don't think my girls have anything awkward really, mostly boxes and I don't think they have any with the open front (which I agree are awful, always poke a hole in them accidentally!)
