Presentation is as important, if not more important than the product or the gift. Why do you think so many Realtors are using 20 year old photos of themselves?

Eye candy is important...it shows that you care enough to put some thought and time into the whole gift giving process and makes that gift more special and memorable.

At a fine dining restaurant, the presentation is just as important as the food.  It sets the mood.  If it's poorly wrapped, what level of thought and care went into selecting the gift?

 

Now with full disclosure, my family is mostly into gift bags and I did learn how to properly wrap gifts back when I worked in a fine gift and antique store in high school.
