As for wrapping the presents, this was great! Since I was just taping wrapping paper, it did an excellent job. I wouldn't want heavy duty tape to do this anyways, because it is just going to get ripped off. Scotch tape could probably do the trick just as well, but I had this and figured it was a great time to use it. However, I was frustrated by the "tape clip" (not sure it's formal name) on the dispenser. When I would cut off a piece of tape, I would take the extra that wasn't on the roll and secure it behind the clips so it wouldn't fall back onto the roll, but frequently it rolled forward despite me doing this...which was frustrating.
Overall though, I think this is a nice set of tape that would be ideal for packing lighter items, so you don't have to waste your heavy duty tape if you don't need to.
