Yea, OK, I’ll admit it: I’m one of those hopeless romantics who read historical romance novels in high school where mid-evil lords ravaged the blossoming daughters of their peasants.
Nonetheless, I’m also a messy, untalented hopeless romantic when it comes to anything remotely crafty. Which includes wrapping paper … and that final act of shoving gifts inside it.
No, you pervert! That was not a subliminally sexual message. You shame me.
It was an attempt, in my exhausted state, to explain why my gifts—and I mean ALL my gifts—look like a wad of discarded metal feces.
But for the guys out there, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret, OK?
A crappy gift-wrapping job just means she put alotta heart into it.
She loves you, dude. Congrats!
But it’s true … Pinterest just makes the vast majority of us look like unorganized slobs who have no money, no style, and no ability to cook.
So when the atrocious monster of a gift is slid your way across the dinner table during your anniversary, or birthday, or even V-day, know it’s a labor of love. Like Frankenstein. Only more romantic.
On a quick side-note …
I just celebrated my six-year anniversary with my hun this past Sunday. Which, for everyone else, is obviously what sparked this whole gift-wrapping rant. Use it to your advantage.
Now girls, hurry and share this post with your guys.
So the next time you present him with that horrific monstrosity of a wrapping job, he’ll know just how much you truly care.
