How to Wrap a Present in a Unique Way

You don't always need the traditional paper and bow. Try something a little different.
- STEP 1: Think category wrapping first. Put gardening gloves in a terra cotta flowerpot with a long ivy strand tied around the pot in a bow. Or wrap baby items in a baby blanket with French ribbon.
- STEP 2: Use unexpected papers: maps, art papers, cellophane, foil, shopping bags, wax papers, or comics. Don't forget about paper you stamp, paint, write on or collage yourself.
- STEP 3: Consider wire, rolls of stamps, string, sashes, old ties, belts, laces, lariats, leather strips, dog leashes, telephone wire, garden tapes, old cassette tapes and stickers to tie packages.
- STEP 4: Use unusual containers. Wrap a silk shirt in a matching sweater, a diamond bracelet in a sock, a camera in a velvet wine-bottle bag, a book in a cereal box, or a watch in a makeup bag. A carefully cleaned egg could hold a ring.
- STEP 5: Customize the wrapping to fit the sentiment. For example, you could wrap a rose in a newspaper from the day you met and tie it with a bright-red licorice whip.
