Creative Gift Wrapping - Hiding Gifts in the Pantry
For anyone wanting to hide gifts and save on wrapping paper, use boxes out of your pantry. When I start collecting gifts I hide them in my pantry in empty food boxes, they would not look into. I glue the boxes shut. Oatmeal, cake mix, even canned vegetables. Use the can opener that cuts the outside of the can rim and creates a cap. I put the gift inside and glue it shut.
On Christmas day they are given a grocery bag and a shopping list to go shopping for their gifts. They have to get the can opener to open the cans. Some cans have the pull tabs that make it easy.
I always make sure there is only one of the food items in the pantry so there is no confusion. It is time consuming but they look forward to their shopping trip.

I like your idea. With five children ages 17 to 6 months that would make it interesting instead of just passing around gifts as usual and watch them tear off the paper.
