ManWrap takes the hassle out of wrapping a present.

Man Wrap -- wrapping paper for men.Let’s say you actually remembered to buy a gift.

You still have to wrap it.

Martin Grix, director of the London-based company The Monster Factory, knows that’s not a strong point for most guys, so he invented ManWrap — no scissors or tape required. Just roll it out, place the gift in the middle, tear off a section and twist.

“Generally, there have always been men moaning about wrapping up presents and women who are more particular about it,” Grix told MailOnline. “My brother actually wrapped my stuff up one year in (trash) bin bags and I have heard of other men using kitchen tin foil.”

So Grix came up with ManWrap to make gift-wrapping quicker and easier — and still look presentable. A 16-foot roll of the blue-and-silver paper sells for 4.99 pounds ($7.81).

“ManWrap is the easy to use quality foil wrapping paper designed to make lives simpler, especially for the men in our lives who would no doubt rather be in the pub than wrapping gifts!” the company’s website says.

Remember, guys, it’s the thought that counts. But it doesn’t hurt if the gift also looks nice.

They have not seen my girl friend wrap! And I really don't think this thing would help anyone wrap a better package.

Men are idiots and have to be given special tools that help them overcome their shortfalls. Tee-hee!  How funny!


Replace "men" with African Americans, women, the disabled, or one of any other targeted audience and see the hellish fallout.  If you are going to enforce an Orwellian nanny state, the rules apply to all groups, not just the trendy ones.

If this was an article about women, the website would be on fire.  Someone needs to start an anti-male-defamation league.  Seriously, we need to stop being sexist against both genders. How about some equality.

I think all men everywhere should be offended by this headline and should create an internet storm of outrage. It is a far better use of their time than reading a real news report (something not on MSN).....perhaps the authoress is venting her anger at being rejected by every man she ever met, which of course is because they are idiots and not because she is an overbearing, whining moron.
