There's something deeply satisfying about having perfectly wrapped presents nestled under the fragrant pines of your Christmas tree. Unfortunately, wrapping paper, tape, bows and ribbons don't come free. "When it comes to gift-buying, the cost of gift wrap quickly adds up," notes Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison and financial education website. "In fact, Americans spend almost $3 billion on gift wrap and related accessories."
