Storage Ottoman as a Gift Box

For one of the gifts I needed to wrap this year, I needed a pretty large box.  I hadn't found a normal box that this object would fit in, so one day I noticed some storage ottomans for sale at one of the local chain stores (that's an oxymoron).  

Storage Ottoman/Container as a Gift Box

I really liked this idea, because not only do you get easy pretty wrapping, but the wrapping is part of the gift...and you don't have to wrap it.  

This also works for that gift you bought for someone, but you are running late to the event and you don't have anything to wrap with at home, and you don't have time to go to the store and then come back home and wrap it too.  

I'll admit, I have done that before.  It is very stressful.

Here is a stress free way.

And you don't have to talk yourself out of it, because wrapping paper and gift bags are super expensive.  And this is not much more.

What alternative ways have you used to wrap presents that are large or bulky?



  1. What a great idea! Much better than those huge "bicycle" gift bags I've used before for large, awkward shaped gifts. I will have to remember this one.

    1. Thanks Sybil! I guess this gift was more strangely shaped than it was large, however the box worked out to be just big enough! Glad you found it helpful!
