make a gift wrapping pattern out of it instead
This holiday season, you should give the gift of ultimate vanity: Stick a loved one's face all over the wrapping paper you use for their gift. Thanks to the fine folks who built Gift Wrap My Face, you can now do that - or chose gift wrap with your own face, or with the faces of completely random people. With the holiday season now upon us, this trend has now come to wrapping paper. While Gift Wrap My Face is a silly product, it's still an interesting development in our society's fascination with selfies and silly representations of ourselves. Even more than the finished product, what is most impressive might be the company's achievement in building out the process that allows for the gift wrapping to go from a pattern the customer designs on the website to a roll of wrapping paper. Wrapping paper is hardly the only notable service doing something like this. Apps like Shots - "That Justin Bieber-backed photo app" - are taking off, with thousands of users uploading picture after picture of themselves. So in a way, a lot of these apps, services, and products might actually be making us accept having our faces so exposed and easily available.
