4) The wrapping

It’s the outside that counts! Everyone wants to have the best wrapped gift under the tree – so you end up going way over budget on cute wrapping and bows – for it to just get unwrapped by an unappreciative boy and dumped in the bin 🙁

5) Opening your gift

It’s your turn to open your gift… “please like it, please like it” goes over and over in your head! Get ready to fake your smile and pretend to love those bed socks that you’ve always wanted!
