    I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
    I was hoping that more people would discover and enjoy it if I shared it here.
    I actually sent it out as a holiday card using youtube. :-)
    Happy Holidays!

    Hi
    I found your comments on line and tried to look up the movie “the gift wrapper” and can not find it to rent or purchase any where. May I ask how you found this movie and how can I find it.
    Also if you know of any other good Christmas or Holiday movies that you would like to share, I would be most grateful.
    Thank you in advance
    Rose

    Hi, Rose! This little clip is the whole movie. But some other Christmas classics are listed here and here. Thanks for writing!

    Nell,
    Thank you anyway, I guess the movie/clip is no longer available. I sure wish I could find it somewhere as I have read that it is a good short movie.
    if you find it somewhere else please let me know. I will check on your site again.
    Thank you also for the list of Christmas moives!!

    That’s right, Rose, sorry. It was available for a limited time only. I hope it will be back up next Christmas.

    I’ve had some questions about the wonderful lead actress, Wendy Allyn, in “The Gift Wrapper”.
    I found information about her here:
