Putting a big red bow on a gift carries significant meaning.

A big red bow says this is it!  The top gift!  None better!  What you always wanted!  A show stopper!

A big red bow belongs on things like a car, a bicycle or baseball mitt.

You put a big red bow on a doll house, basketball hoop or recliner.

Concert tickets, a leather jacket or a puppy.

Those are the items worthy of a big red bow!


With this in mind, I decided to put the big red bow theory to test.
