Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: thrift - rap

Sentence: Benjamin always used thriftwrap for his gifts. He reclaimed all wrappings from gifts he received throughout the year and sometimes reused styrofoam take-out containers as boxes. He was careful to wash all traces of food out of them first. His friends were sometimes "befuddled" though as the paper he had around the house did not always match the occasion.

Etymology: thrift (parsimony: extreme care in spending money; reluctance to spend money unnecessarily) + wrap (enclose or enfold completely with or as if with a covering)

Pronunciation: rap so free

Sentence: Her Christmas rhapsody turned to crapsody when her chapsody's gift came wrapped in old magazine pages. Colorful as they were, she knew he'd never paid for a magazine in his life, so this gift was done up in wrapsofree. His gift to her from the Gapsody would have been better received if he had not stolen pages from his Dadsody's stash of Playboys. For that he got a slapsody, after which he needed a napsody!

Etymology: Wrap (covering on a gift) & So Free (no cost), wordplay on rhapsody...which this is not!
