Christmas Debate: Parcels

Postby Gail Allen » Fri Dec 01, 2017 9:48 pm

Many of us have been the child who crawled under the tree to feel up the wrapped parcels, trying to guess what was inside.
The most noticeable difference would of course be whether the parcel was hard and maybe even 'box shaped', or soft and somewhat sounded.

But the question I pose to you is: Which is better? The hard box shaped parcel, or the soft slightly rounded parcel.
Thank you Cassie for the signature!

The hard, box shaped parcel of course, since it was always most likely to be a book. In fact, it was always (except for one time) a book.

The hard, box shaped parcel is better. It leaves more to mystery and suspense as it can hold many items. Hopefully you can hold out long enough to open it on Christmas morning and not before. I used to wrap obvious shapes presents in large box shapes just to throw off the recipient.

I always liked the box shaped presents simply because they looked neater under the tree. A lot of times, my presents would include new books or dance wear that was put into a cardboard box. As Scarlett said, boxes can hold so many different presents whereas if it it's soft and rounded, I can often guess what it might be just by feeling it. I really liked to remain surprised until I finally unwrap the gift.
