274/365 Disguised gifts

Our stockings were hung by the chimney with care, filled to the top with gifts of shapes that aren't easily mistaken.

CDs and DVDs are common stocking gifts in my family. Because they're small, they make good stocking stuffers -- but there's no mistaking that shape when you pull it out. When they make it under the tree as gifts there, we often go to more trouble to disguise the shape. I like retaining a little bit of the mystery for the recipients of the gift.

Chase did a great job of disguising one of my gifts this year. The outer package was round and about the size of a basketball. When I discarded the paper, he had wrapped the gift in layer after layer after layer of bubble wrap. We all laughed while it took me a couple minutes to actually get to the gift in the middle.

What was it? A nice rain gauge. He wins the prize for best disguise this year!
