It’s Christmas Time: Bring on The UnWrap Attack {$100 eBay GiftCard Giveaway}

One thing that I love most about Christmas is watching my kids open the presents they have been asking for all year long. Nothing like the excitement, expressions and joy that exudes out of them when they get that one item they have been longing over every time we go to the store. Even better than that is catching it on video so you can show them when they are 20 how they acted (especially when they bring a friend over LOL).

Causing extreme squeeling along with throwing yourself on the floor when opening a gift is what is called “The UnWrap Attack” What is an UnWrap Attack you ask, let Samantha Bee explain:

The little girl that seems as if she will never be the same from opening her gift, yeah that is an UnWrap Attack and it’s all part of Ebay’s Love To Give campaignthis Christmas. What would cause me to act just like that, screaming, throwing myself on the floor, laughing and crying all at the same time? Hands down and iPad, that unwrap attack won’t be happening anytime soon for me due to circumstances beyond my control, but just the thought of getting one is enough to throw me into a giggle fit.

Ebay’s Love To Give message is all about what I love to do each year, have a blast giving gifts. I get so excited buying for my kids that it takes all my self control to hide the gifts away until Christmas because I know the reaction they are going to have. I am ready for that reaction the minute I pick up the gift, self control is key. The kids count down to Christmas because they are ready to see the gifts from the family as well as Santa, I count down to watch them open the gifts they have been wanting all year.

    Ah! I’be been following everyone’s unwrap attack posts and dreaming of what to buy for my kids (or husband) to give them that SAME kind of sensation. Actually, my kids squeal w/ just about anything. Give them a dollar toy and they are yelling, “Thank You JESUS!” at the top of their lungs. Seriously. *Left Eyebrow Raised*

    But my HUSBAND! It’s hard to get him excited, maybe because we spend more on the kids then we do eachother. My goal this year is to give him an unwrap attack w/ the Roku HD Player (we gave up our cable so this is going to be great) and a new LED Flatscreen TV. I saved a few gift cards and paypal payments and amazon cards… I MAY be able to do it. I’m squealing at the chance. If I can’t pull off the TV, I’m getting him the XBOX 360 w/ Kinect.

    Great giveaway girl! mommafindings at gmail dot com

    The best unwrap attack story was my 9 year old son gave his sister (7) a huge heavy box (heavy rocks) wrapped so pretty and she was so excited to see what was inside ….she teared at it threw the tissue paper out and sat on the ground crying ( we have it all on video) after she saw all the rocks…her Brother kibda freaked out because she was crying so hard and he said Please look in the box and at the bottom was a little wrapped box…=) he and his Grandma had bought her a birthstone ring ….then the excitment began…sooo Sweet!

    My best unwrap attack as a kid was when Santa brought my siblings and I bicycles. There was too much snow on the ground to ride them outside, so we spent the day riding them through the house (and not a huge house, so we basically rode back and forth, back and forth about a million times!)

    I would have an unwrap attack for a new iPhone (mine is loosing it’s mojo). The best unwrap attack story that I have is from last year; my bf is a twin and we enjoy trying to come up with ridiculous presents to give his twin. Last year, we got him a framed picture of our cats. He didn’t unwrap attack the present…but my anticipation for him unwrapping it almost caused me to wrap attack it for him!

    Well I think I would if I got a proper engagement ring, mine was resized and they messed it up so I only got to wear it maybe a year and have been married 10 years now. Though as a whole I’d rather be able to get my husband or daughter something awesome and give them a unwrap attack. Thanks for the chance 🙂

    I don’t have a true unwrap attack moment.

    However, I will tell you about my niece’s unwrap attack moment. Several years ago, my Mom found a pair of long red flapback pajamas at a resale shop. She purchased them and hid them until Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve, after the kids went to bed, my Mom put the flapback jammies under the tree, draped over some of the presents.

    When my niece and nephew got up on Christmas morning and started opening their gifts, they were astonished to see the jammies, and my niece exclaimed “Grandma, Santa dropped his drawers under our tree!”

    It is now tradition for Santa to leave his jammies under the tree.

    As for what would cause an unwrap attack for me? A new Bunn coffee brewer!

    Thanks for the chance!
