Just in case you are still scrambling to wrap those shiny presents...as requested - a quick (picture) tutorial.
Yes - i do wrap all my presents on the floor.
Some tips: Tape the first edge to the bottom of the present to prevent sliding around (unless it is a book). Use small pieces of tape. Make sure the end sides are only 1/2 of the total height. Fold the seam edge down first on the sides. Use your finger to hold the first knot in the ribbon down. Scissors make good ribbon curls. Also nice embelishments - old holiday cards, ornaments, different colored paper.
