Wrapping Presents

I've just spent the better part of two hours wrapping Christmas presents...I'm not complaining...not in the least.....this is actually my favorite parts of Christmas....I mean, apart from getting together with friends and family and enjoying a huge foodfest....oh, and the lazy, semi-drunken afternoons during the Chrismas break from work....yeah...other than those two things, of course......yip, wrapping presents is kick-ass....actually, I probably need to rephrase that..WRAPPING presents isn't that great...what is GREAT is imagining the looks on people's faces when they OPEN the presents that you've just been wrapping....yeah, THAT's what I actually meant....

As I was wrapping the presents, I began to see a theme emerging.....see if you can spot something strange in my Christmas wrapping adventure today....

Uncle J: 100 rounds of Winchester 12ga #8 shot gameloads...check...
Aunt K: Fluffy stuffed toy Rhinoceros from Pier One...check...
Helpful and Lovely lady at work: Candle stuff and woven basket from Pier One..check..
Lovely and Helpful lady at work: Bath Stuff and wicker bag type thinggy from Pier One...check..
Uncle M: Blaze Orange hunting vest with leak proof/stain proof game compartment...check...
Darling Mother: Can't say, she might be reading this...
Darling Wife: Ditto
Ditto multiple times for Wife and Mother...
Personal Assistant at work: BIG Bath set AND Candle from Pier One..check...
Consultant at Work: Stainless Steel wine pourer...pretty cool, actually...check..

Yep...piece of CAKE, boys and girls....get the wimmen ANYTHING from Pier One that either SMELLS good, or makes THEM smell good, and you are on a winner....if you gotta buy for a guy...get him bullets....something to do with hunting, or something to do with drinking....easy-peasy.....

Comments so far:

I buy gift certificats from Pier 1 for about 5 of my friends - I can't miss that way! They love them!

Beth: SEE!!! Pier One is a GOD SEND for us non-present-buying guys....the ONE-STOP-SHOP for everything a woman needs...but, for guys, I, as I'm sure John would agree, would much rather have the extra shotgun rounds...than a dad-burn CANDLE...

Let's look at the wrapping crap - I spent hours last night doing just that. And after having a kid ' accidentally ' tear the corner off a gift the year befor, it's hard to come up with odd shaped boxes...

...Gives me the idea for a post, thanks, Red !

What's not to love? Alcohol assistance, ammo, candles, and stuffed toys. It sounds like the perfect Christmas to me!

Know what Pier One should make? Scented wax ammo. Smells good going in, leaves little evidence going out.
