25 Things to do Before Christmas - #14 Gift Wrapping

#14 Gift Wrapping - Maybe you like wrapping gifts at the last minute and scrambling at the 11th hour. On the other hand, maybe you wish you could have all your holiday gifts wrapped and waiting for their recipients while you relax and calmly enjoy your friends, family and holiday festivities.

If you fall into the first group of people you are reading this blog because you think I'm an outstanding writer and due for an award. I'm guessing that's not the case for most of you and you really would like to get a grip on the season.

OK - Book a date in your calendar to wrap presents. Now book a second date. It always takes way longer than you think. Check that you have a copy of your favourite movies to watch or music to listen to while you wrap. Pull out all your wrapping supplies, gift tags and ribbons. Is there enough? Replenish only if necessary. Get ready for that calm enjoyment of the season.
