The small package held a football for N., and the large package was - you guessed it! - a bag of homemade dumplings. Accompanying the dumplings were some charming, illustrated instructions.
I asked S. how he came up with this gift wrapping idea. He writes:
So I was trying to discuss what gift to give you guys over the dinner table with my mom and [housemate] L. The conversation went like this:
Me: What should I give Charissa?
L: You should give her 5 eggs.
My mom: What about the dumplings I just made?
L: And they are individually wrapped!
Me: How fitting! And I'll wrap them into a huge dumpling!
So yes, it was a group effort.S., thank you for such creative and fun packages.
