7. Wrapping paper I'm one of those strange people that often gets more excited about wrapping paper than the actual present. I've even mastered the art of removing sticky-tape without tearing the paper. There are so many gorgeous gift wraps available today, and it's a bargain to buy a piece and frame it. A good friend of mine found gift wrap with a vintage sketch of the Eiffel Tower on it. It is now framed and hangs in her living room looking a million bucks.
