Default Gift Wrapping Help

Does anyone have a cleaver way to wrap socks? I have 3 teen boys Nike socks to wrap. I was thinking clear pails but boys don't do ribbon. Then I thought about clear cups from Mcdonalds or Starbucks....but I don't know if they will give me the cups....I'm in crunch mode....Help!

I'll bet they will give you a cup if you offer up 25 cents which seems reasonable. Ask for free first though. Go for triple cupping--LOL.

I give my brothers socks every year. And I stuff them into a wrapping paper tube (tube socks, you know). Wrap up the tube and you are ready to go!

(I have cut the wrapping paper tube down to the length I need for the # of socks)

We have divided the socks and put one in one box with a few marbles or something that will make it rattle, and the other sock in another box usually a different size than the first one. We have done this with many gifts that come in pairs, it makes Christmas morning and gift opening fun.

Yep, the old tube wrap! I use wrapping paper tubes and paper towel tubes for the little kids!
