Her name is Hillary Flood and she's not only a professional gift wrapper with extensive experience but she'll do your shopping as well. Hillary's business is called Wrap It Up. Just give her your list and she'll check it twice. Hillary hopes to make this a year-round service for birthdays and special occasions. You can contact her at (705) 745-0232 or email.
