Eight Holiday Do's and Don'ts
Do unwrap it already.
Yes, some people have a knack for wrapping gifts with beautiful bows and adorable tags. Acknowledge it once and then move along. Holding up the unwrapping queue with statements like "Oh, it's too pretty to open" only serves to irritate your fellow partygoers and makes the giver wish they'd just stuffed it in a paper bag.
The same advice goes for pretty table settings, desserts, and anything else that may be deemed "too lovely" to actually use for its intended purpose.
