It reminds me of the diamond engagement ring story. In the early 1900's someone took something worthless and convinced everyone to buy it. Now nearly 100 years later you are a bad person if you don't buy this worthless thing at exorbitant prices.

/don't even get me started on gift cards

The cloth wrapping sounds interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furoshiki. A few yards of this stuff could go a long way.

They sell wrapping cloth at gift stores. You know those stores that sell notebooks, quirky things, soaps and jewelry? I've seen it at these types of shops a few times in the past few years.

How many times as a kid I had given and received gifts wrapped in the Sunday Comics. I would always try and put Charlie Brown to show on top.
