Jennifer Garner is all of us trying to wrap presents—its so relatable it hurts
Wrapping presents: you either love the process, or loathe it. Actress Jennifer Garner recorded an all-too-relatable con of gift wrapping—what we call “the dreaded present peek-a-boo.” It’s what happens when you think you have enough paper to cover your parcel, until you reach the last fold and realize a piece of your present is peeking through the paper. As Garner showed us, there is a fox for the problem, but we can tell you right now, our fixes never look as good as hers.
“This is like Macy’s level,” Garner said in her Instagram video, posted on Christmas Day. She then flips the package in her hand around to show off the bottom, where a piece of the cardboard packaging refuses to be covered. “Do I need to patch something that small? Probably.”
The dread sets in. How can one discreetly cover up the present peek-a-boo without totally butchering the entire wrap job?
“Santa probably does that sometimes, and he’s just like, ‘well, what are you gonna do?’” Garner joked. “In your face, Santa.”
“Mischief managed,” Garner signed off, right before she whispered, “It’s a ukulele!” Ah hah! That explains the bizarre shape.
As always, Garner proved that she’s perhaps the most-relatable celeb we know. Who hasn’t had to deal with the present peek-a-boo? One Instagram follower commented, “Can’t tell you how many presents I have patched over the years.” Another wrote, “Omg, that so happened to me when I was trying to wrap a Ukulele one year.”
If anyone needed a reminder that nobody’s perfect, Jennifer Garner delivered. We’re definitely saving this video to remind us how to perfectly patch a present peek-a-boo come next holiday season.
