I've got a super simple gift wrapping idea for you today. A few days ago, I was browsing through a store selling second hand books when I chanced upon on a stack of comic books. Most of them were ones I'd never read but hidden deep in the pile was an old childhood favourite...Donald Duck!

The comic book was in Danish (in case you're wondering why it's called Anders And, duck in Danish is and) and I thought I'd use it to practice my rather basic Danish reading skills. Once I had finished reading it, I was wondering what to do with it when I thought what a fun gift wrap it would make for small sized gifts.

If I was a kid, I'd love to have my gifts wrapped like this. Scratch that, I'd be happy to have my gift wrapped like this even now! It'll be fun to relive some childhood moments. This is one gift wrapping idea both kids and adults will love, not to mention a perfect way to recycle.

I love wrapping things in comics! That one is perfect, with bright scenes and a lot of colours. Also, thanks for teaching me some danish just now :-)

Ha ha....I could teach you a lot more basic Danish vocabulary has a lot of fun, nonsensical words:-)
