    I’m going to go with… you’re just weird that way. But we love you for your weirdness, so it’s win-win for us, too. I think it would be fun to wake up on Christmas morning and never know what box you’re going to unwrap. Did you get the toaster strudel box or a shoe box? Who got the Ritz cracker box? Plus, you get something inside which makes it even more awesome!

    I might have to start doing this. But then, I’d leave some boxes empty just to keep them guessing… ’cause I’m weird like that.

      I love all of you for your weird and quirky ways, too. πŸ™‚

      I LOVE using different boxes for gifts. When I was about 14 I wanted to wrap a $5.00 bill around a tampon and wrap it in a tampon box for the cousins name-drawing at my grandparents house…but my mom wouldn’t let me. I’d drawn a male cousin’s name and thought it would be perfect. As an adult, I realize it would have embarrassed the snot out of him…so yes, it would have been perfect. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      If you do start saving boxes, be careful with the little ones. When my oldest daughter was two, I found the most adorable stuffed animal…and wrapped it in a Little Debbie cake box. Let me tell you…her eyes lit up brighter than the Christmas tree when she saw the box…and the whole adorable-ness factor was lost when she realized there were no cakes in the box. So if you’ve got a kid or toddler on your list, use an ugly, unappealing box. πŸ™‚
