Take advantage of those charities in the malls that will wrap your gift(s) for a small donation. If you wrap the way I do, you take EVERY opportunity to have someone else wrap your gifts. If a store offers free gift wrapping, I take advantage of it. But it's really great to have use a charity to wrap your gift for you. The charity gets money, and your gift looks lovely!
