So we started with a contest last week aimed at those of you with wee ones in your lives. (And I just announced the winner).

Now here's one for everybody else featuring products featured in our Made by Mom Gift Guide! Enter to win some great gifts to give to friends or family and to keep for yourself! (Not all prizes will be ready in time for Christmas as some will be customized for the winner!)

So what's included?

How do you enter? As many as two ways ...

  • Follow Go Ask Mom on Twitter and tweet about the contest
  • Answer the following question in the comments: Are you good at wrapping presents? Or, like me, do you end up with weird angles, bows that don't really match, way to much wrapping paper and/or seams that barely meet.

This contest ends at noon Dec. 19. One winner will be picked at random from all entries. The winners' user name will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. Dec. 19 and an email will be sent. The winner must respond by noon Dec. 21 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

Congratulations to the winner: eri815

    I love wrapping gifts and I do a pretty good job, I think. I've always wanted to work in the gift wrapping center at Belk's during Christmas!!

    I'm pretty good at wrapping, but it seems like such a waste when my kids could set speed records ripping all the paper off. I much prefer gift bags and tissue paper. It's also recyclable. Some friends and I have been passing the same set of bags back and forth for a couple of years now.

    I'm the designated wrapper in the house, after many years of other's poor attempts!!

    I'm a pretty good wrapper and do enjoy when it looks nice. Most of the time I'm too cheap to buy the really nice paper, which makes a big difference. The worst is when you cut the paper too short and then I'm determined to make it work, so I don't waste it. It is so nice to see a beautifully wrapped present and I really wish I took more time with it.

    My wrapping skills are pretty legendary in our family. I'm known for reusing materials of all kinds as wrapping 'paper'. Many times, I'll use the fabric from pretty clothing that no longer fits, newsprint, freezer paper or even leftover wallpaper. If I'm going to spend extra money, I'll put it in the gift and not the wrapping, but it's very easy to still make a pretty package.

    I am the worst gift wrapper. My husband rewrapped a gift that I had wrapped for a wedding present b/c he was so embarrassed.

    I am rather good a wrapping gifts, but do a terrible job with bows.

    I used to work in the gift wrap at Belk in Durham when I was a teenager. I learned a lot of tricks that have been useful over the years. The best one was to always use sharp scissors to cut wrapping paper!

    I love wrapping presents and making curly bows from the nicer wrapping paper as long as I am not under pressure to get it done fast...then I have a tendency to not have enough paper or tape, lol.

    I consider myself pretty good at wrapping presents, when I choose to wrap. With a full time job and a daughter I find myself putting things in bags instead of wrapping.
