I think that wrapped packages are exciting. Someone has chosen a surprise for us, and wrapped it up to look pretty!
My grandchildren like to get lots of packages. (duh!) They do not have to be expensive. For example, for the grandsons, age 7 and 9, a 50 cent whoopie cushion from the Party Store was a huge hit. Whats more, their mother remembered loving her whoopie cushion at the same age. Everyone in the family played with it, until it broke a few days later. That will be one of the gifts this year, and I am sure it will be greeted with great delight again.
