Wrapping A Gift

Many of us give gift to family or friend on special occasion. We pay careful attention as to what thing to buy; we want to surprise the person with a special gift. It is a memorable occasion, and we really want to make the person happy and to treasure our love for him or her.

Now that the occasion has arrived. We are already at the front gate or door of his or her house. Then we realize that we have not wrapped the gift or put it into a proper gift bag.

What would you do? Would you hesitate to go in? Would you rather rush to a gift shop to have your gift wrapped or at least put in a unique bag?

Some of us may treat it as an oversight and would just go in; we are confident that the person concerned would not mind. It may be alright if we know that he or she is not very particular about the wrapping of the gift, and who insists that what counts is the thought of giving.

But what if you are wrong?

There are some among us who are very particular as to the wrapping of the gift or the putting it into a unique bag or basket. Giving an unwrapped gift could certainly ruin the surprise and affect the relationship itself.

Personally, I would take a moment to see that the gift is wrapped properly before I give it away. It is a special occasion, and we are giving a special gift to a special person. We don't want to hurt the person or ruin the occasion. We just want to have a happy time together.

It is better not to take everything for granted. We never know what others may think about us. We may not mind but we don't always expect others would overlook our mistake. It would do us good to take some positive steps to rectify our mistake.

Wrapping a gift may not seem very important, but it is a nice touch. And It can be done very quick and easy. We can always ask for professional help if we need some creative ideas.

Maybe it is time for us to be more considerate in everything we do. We don't want to ruin our relationship just for an unwrapped gift!

Great post. Thank you. Wrapping a gift looks like framing the picture.
The way we do that, reflects the heart - influence us ourselves ultimately.
