  1. Cheeseburger Wrapping Paper, $20 at Gift Couture: Wrap six gifts and make a full burger, or, if you’re not feeling so generous, split it up — wrapping your vegetarian friend’s gift in the lettuce paper and your carnivore friend’s gift in the burger patty paper.
  2. Sugar & Spice, $15 at Minted: You can personalize these sheets with your favorite (not-so-secret) cookie recipe.
  3. Holiday Cupcakes Wrap, $7 at Snow & Graham: These cupcakes provide a whimsical twist on boring red-and-green Christmas wrapping paper.
  4. Sushi Gift Wrap, $15 at Spoonflower: Perfect gift wrapping for the friend who has the number to her local sushi joint memorized.

  8. Potato Latkes Gift Wrap, $8 at Mr. Boddington’s Studio: Your Jewish grandmother will kvell over this latke-themed gift wrap, complete with a recipe. (It’s not as good as her recipe, but it’s not like she’s planning on sharing that with anyone anyway, right?).
