Wrapping faux-pas

At the moment I had one piece of tape left to finish affixing the wrapping paper, I realized I hadn't checked the box for a price tag. D'oh! It was too tightly wrapped to slide the box back out and took quite a bit of paper, so I didn't want to have to start over from scratch.

Is it terrible that I'm justifying leaving a possible tag with the fact that my niece can't read yet? I hope I don't end up on Santa's Naughty list for taking the easy route. It's possible there isn't even a tag on it. If I had x-ray vision, I wouldn't be having this problem.

  1. Oh honey. If she can't read, you've got nothing to worry about.

    My sister's mother-in-law always leaves the tags on her gifts to my sister, but never to anyone else. What do you think that means?

  2. One year I let my daughter wrap all the gifts. She finished and I realized we didn't know what was in what box, and she hadn't labeled them!

  3. Michele: Glad you agree. As for the in-law, it takes all kinds, doesn't it? ;)

    Julia: Classic and apropos as I did some wrapping for my Mom this afternoon trusting only her differentiated piles without checking the boxes' contents. Guess we'll find out on xmas if I kept the piles straight! :)

  4. I am in awe that you are already wrapping Christmas presents. I will probably be hustling through that chore on Christmas eve!

  5. Elisabeth: I've only started on the gifts that have to be shipped. I'm sure there will be some last minute wrapping too. :)

  7. Absolutely. The only way it gets more irritating is if the price is printed directly on the item... like for books. Grrr. ;)
