DALLAS -- By now, it's likely that all your holiday gifts have been purchased. Fingers crossed. Now comes the hard part -- wrapping them. And let's face it, some folks struggle more than others.

Well, there may be a way to make it a bit easier. Ever heard of Japanese gift wrapping? The process uses a diagonal approach, as opposed to what you may be used to. It only takes like four steps, and waaaayyy less tape.

Pretty nifty, huh?

Now, while presents are a pretty big deal when it comes to the holidays, so is quality time with family. Heck, even AT&T knows that. That's why they've recently launched a "present" commercial. Similar to the "It Can Wait" campaign, the movement is encouraging people to put their phones up and give the present of being present.

Yeah, if a phone company is telling you to put your phone down, you probably need to give it a rest.

Hey, at the end of the day, a bad holiday gift wrap can be improved, but missing out on holiday memories? Yeah, you don't get those back.
