Ellen: Wrapping Presents
Ellen kicked off her show by talking about how important it is to be present during the holidays. Then she said she was going to help them be present by giving them presents for the 12 Days of Giveaways.
Ellen asked her audience how many of them had trouble gift wrapping and they all cheered. Ellen said wrapping a present is a lot of work. First you have to get the scissors from the junk drawer and then get the tape. Unless the tape is a brand new roll, then you’re going to be looking for the beginning forever.
“This is true. Last night, I spent an hour going around and around a roll of Scotch tape before I put it down and went for real scotch,” Ellen joked.
Once you finally get the present wrapped, Ellen said, you realize you’re an inch short. Then you think about cutting off a little strip, but she called this the “comb-over of presents.”
Ellen TV: Wrapping a Gift in 15 Seconds
Ellen showed a video of a woman wrapping a present in 15 seconds. “With a box it’s easy, but Portia wants a pony. What do I do with that?’ Ellen joked.
Ellen tried to do what the woman in the video did and showed the results. It was a very messily wrapped gift that was mostly a mound of wrapping paper. “You’d never know these were earrings, though, right?” Ellen joked.
Then Ellen pointed out there’s an easier way to wrap gifts. It’s called a bag. Ellen demonstrated the usefulness of the bag. Ellen has her own line of holiday bags from her line called E.D. on Air, which you can get on QVC.
Ellen: Twitch Wrapping Presents
Ellen introduced her guest DJ Twitch. He said he wasn’t good at gift wrapping. But he has a secret.
“I use tissue paper and as I’m giving them the gift, I start a speech, right? So while I’m saying the speech, they’re kind of unwrapping, and when I’m done, they haven’t noticed that it wasn’t wrapped. And they just see the present. You see what I’m saying?” Twitch said.
“Well, your friends are drunk or stupid. How do you not notice that a gift’s not wrapped?” Ellen joked.
Ellen joked that if you want to see Twitch demonstrate “how to properly wrap a package” you can see him in Magic Mike 2.

There were many others and they were all hilarious.
