Workshop Media’s Jon Bailey takes a look at some of the quirks, annoyances and pet peeves of the Christmas Season in Workshop’s Christmas Humbugs!
Ok, confession time. I suck at wrapping presents. If the present is a simple box I can make it look reasonably presentable, but if there are any odd angles or curves I am useless. I know I’m not alone in this. Most of the men I know are similarly rubbish. Women, on the other hand, have an almost magical ability to create gorgeously wrapped gifts regardless of shape. How is this possible? Did I miss a special lesson in school? Were girls taught this stuff in one of those PSHE lessons when the genders were separated? More to the point, why do manufacturers insist on making packaging in shapes that defy all attempts to wrap? Is this some kind of conspiracy? The difficulties involved in wrapping gifts is the reason that I mainly buy people books or DVDs for Christmas. It’s just easier that way.
