Do you hate wrapping Christmas gifts? Or are you just plain bad at it?

Either way (but we know it's the latter), bring your haul to Breather (36 Gloucester St.) for at-your-service wrapping — on the house.The on-demand work and private space start-up is offering free giftwrapping services to anyone who RSVPs for a spot between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19.

For Breather — which opened doors in Boston in Aprilwith locations in Back Bay and Harvard Square —the Christmas tunes, free coffee and endless supply of Scotch tape and wrapping paperis an easy ploy to get new potential users into their Instagram-ready rooms, which are available for rent by the hour.

The Montreal-based company currently has nine minimalist single rooms perfect for meetings, phone calls and rendezvous in the Boston area, with additional locations in San Francisco, New York and Canada. Rates range $25-$40 per hour.

But don't worry, it's not entirely a PR stunt—they'll also make a donation to The Boys and Girls Club of Boston for every RSVP. Hey now, that's some holiday cheer.
