 Scoring & Recommendations

Total the number of answers you had for each letter, and find your gift wrap style below. Please note that many people exhibit traits of more than one style, depending on the occasion, recipient, and other contextual cues. It is not unusual to present with more than one gift wrap style.

PREDOMINANTLY A: Perfect Presenter
For you, finding just the right present is only part of the fun. You get giddy about coordinating your wrap with the bride’s colors, the baby shower theme, the birthday kiddo’s favorite super hero, or the hostess’s kitchen décor. You can do totally tasteful or all the way over the top—or anything in between—depending on the occasion. You may or may not have a selection of different kinds of tape to use on different types of paper.

MOSTLY B: Gift Wrap Artist
When it comes to gift giving, you always think outside the box. Maybe you’ll decorate your own paper. Or DIY some tassels or pom poms. Or incorporate a little add-on gift into the wrap. Or you might create a complex, clue-filled quest to build excitement for the lucky recipient. Whether you go trendy and minimalist or decorated to the max, wrapping presents is one big happy creative exercise for you.

SERIOUSLY C: Thrifty Gifter
Your gift closet is as well-equipped as any wrapping paper section in a store, and it’s the first place you “shop” when there’s a party. Your senses tingle when there’s a stock-up sale. And there’s no shame in your re-gift-bagging game. But that doesn’t mean you’re less thoughtful—in fact, you’re a very generous gift giver. And your practical approach means you’ve always got the right wrap on hand for any present and every occasion.

PRETTY MUCH ALL D: Rushed Wrapper
You’re a kind, thoughtful friend. You know your mom’s favorite perfume, the artist your sister likes, and your best friend’s preferred adult beverage. But you’ve got a lot going on. This thing about getting a gift and making it fancy? What are you, an elf? It’s not that you’re against wrapping presents—you’ve just got too many thumbs and too little time.
