Love Actually - Gift-wrapped? Lovely...
Harry buys that gold necklace for Mia, the secretary that he's having an affair with, and the salesman insists on having it gift-wrapped. There's about a five minute scene as the salesman wraps the gift VERY elaborately. A few scenes later, Harry comes home, hangs up his coat and his wife, Karen, goes through the coat pockets to see what he bought. She takes out the plain white box (not gift-wrapped at all!) and is able to open it. So... what was the point of the entire gift-wrapping scene! [Make Corrections] This comment is wrong. Harry doesn't end up buying the wrapped up necklace that day (his wife comes up to him remember?) Then he comes home late one night (his wife says they've been waiting for him) then she sees the pressie. Not a slip-up. Viewer not paying attention.
Visual Proof! See the examples below and post your pictures too.

He left the necklace behind him when his wife Karen came over to the counter. Obviously he went back at a later stage. His wife even asks him why he was late home and he mentioned "can't a man have any secrets?", or something to that effect.

He is supposed to be a sort of guardian angel, to stop him from buying it and having an affair. This happens again at the airport where he helps Sam get through the check in to speak to Joanna buying distracting the ticket assistant!
