Since the early 1800’s, we have gone from horse-drawn carriages to walking on the moon; from dying of the flu to living into our 120’s; from not understanding what air is to having the accumulated knowledge of mankind’s entire history easily accessible on a device we carry in our pockets. Yet, still we wrap gifts the same way. All of its complicated folds and annoying habit of ripping at every corner have made wrapping paper a thorn in my side since I started using to cover up the shitty drawings I made to give to my parents. My family uses aluminum foil as an alternative, but that magical material has its own limitations. Making your Christmas look white trash, for instance. Can we not just have one scientist take one hour of his or her afternoon to come up with a better wrapping paper?
