There are two types of gift wrappers - Those who think it's an art and those who couldn't care less!
A study has found some good news for those who don't pride themselves on their wrapping skills... Poorly wrapped gifts tend to make people happier.
"Specifically, recipients set higher (lower) expectations for neatly (sloppily)‐wrapped gifts, making it harder (easier) for the gifts to meet these expectations, resulting in contrast effects that lead to less (more) positive attitudes toward the gifts once unwrapped."
"However, when the gift‐giver is an acquaintance, there is ambiguity in the relationship status and wrapping neatness serves as a cue about the relationship rather than the gift itself."
So basically, what that all translates to is that people's lower expectations of poorly wrapped gifts actually end up surprising people - making for a happier end result!
