A {Real Simple} Gift-Wrapping Party

Who says wrapping presents has to be a late-night, solo mission? Real Simple has a plan to turn your holiday wrapping into a jolly group activity: Host a Gift-Wrapping Party!

The Party at a Glance:

How it works: You provide wrapping supplies and food. Ask each guest to bring some presents to wrap and one roll of paper so you have a variety.

Whom to invite: Three to five friends. It’s the perfect time to catch up―and escape nosy family members.

Invitation or e-mail? E-mail. Or, even better, Evite.

What to serve: Real Simple suggest Red Pepper Frittata Squares and Oven Fries With Garlic Aioli, which are satisfying and need little hands-on time. You can pull them together the night of the party.

Sounds like a lot more fun than hiding out in your closet, wrapping an endless mound of gifts into the wee hours on Christmas Eve night. Just saying...!

  1. LOL that is just what I did last night once the kiddos went to bed. Make sure they were asleep and then off to the bedroom to wrap by my lonesome : )

    At least it is done now!
