to make wrapping presents easier

If sticky tape had the sticky side facing outwards you could roll the tape over presents, packing boxes etc. making it slightly easier to apply than sticky-side-in sticky tape.

The tape would need to come with a protective layer to protect the exposed surface from becoming a lint magnet.

You're right it is more practical to have the sticky side out, but I'm guessing the sticky side is on the inside because it becomes too contaminated.

What is needed is a two-reel device that unspools a new roll of tape onto a blank roll while reversing the sticky-side-outedness.
