The (ex) JW that my daughter dated gave her a Christmas present...she was so impressed, he used comic pages paper to wrap it in. I bet he was not able to cross that line in his mind into the Christmas paper thing...this gave him a way out of having to use paper with Santas or Greetings all over it.
Thats not it at all! I did this once before also. It's one of two things: A) He's too cheap to buy wrapping paper of B) He's not used to giving gifts and didn't even think about wrapping paper until it was too late.
In my situation it was more of the type A scenario than B but I justified it by reasoning that comic paper would be "cute" and humorous. Bottom line is, I was being a cheap bastard. But that was me at that time. LOL.
