I think this is a wonderful activity, developing so many important skills (besides being fun)! It's the activity of the week at http://livingmontessorinow.com/2010/12/20/activity-of-the-week-gift-wrapping-work/

Neat post. We also have gift wrap work on our shelves. We did not do the labels, though. He had to figure out how to stack them in one stack and how to tie the bow to hold the stack together. We originally had done this work last year and it was such a hit that we brought it out again for this year for Christmas. Love to see how everyone does this work in their classrooms or homeschools.
Here is a link to my blog post:

That is the cutest idea ever. You could use butcher paper or tissue paper and make this a year-round activity. I had my 11 year old niece help me wrap some gifts recently and it reminded me of how much I wanted to wrap presents for my parents neatly and how hard it was to figure out how to make it look nice.
