Clever Gift Wrapping?

Anyone here done any clever gift wrapping this year?

I've gone the super cheap route. I have a gift for my sister in a USPS box that I am decorating with some Sharpies.

I've used brown paper grocery bags (turned inside out of course) and twine before. It really isn't as unsightly as it sounds and it is cheap. Bags are free and the twine is like $1.99 for 100 yds.

I like to take a small gift and put it in a bigger box together with a brick to fool them once in a while.

smoker? I'm going to have to grace my sister with such a generous like this

The christmas after my friend's brother committed suicide, a bunch of us decided to pitch in and get him a Xbox 360 with Call of Duty, and we wrapped it up in this box for an aquarium then put it in an office chair box with packaging peanuts.

He unwrapped it and was like, what a chair then saw the aquarium and was still then saw the xbox and swore that it wasn't real

no "special" wrapping this year, but a few years ago for my friends birthday i put her gift in a box and used several rolls of duct tape to seal it. it was done so great that she couldn't even get into it with a box cutter. she had to peel off the tape. aaah, that was a great gift.
