Giving the gift of a picture makes a gift personal. When wrapping a picture, there are a few considerations before starting, such as what to wrap it in and what the picture is put in beforehand. There are a few options available for wrapping a picture that make it hard to guess what the gift is.

Picture Frame Wrapping

When giving a single picture, putting it in a frame makes it easier to wrap and protects the image from damage. When giving several pictures, a collage picture frame that allows several various-sized pictures is appropriate. Select a wrapping paper and wrap the frame directly. When shipping, put a layer of bubble wrap around the frame, then put the wrapping paper to protect the frame from damage.

Box Gift Wrap

Put the picture in a box and then wrap up the box. For a little added humour, put a single picture either in a frame, photo album or a card for protection and then put the small item in a large box. Fill the box with bubble wrap or packing peanuts and wrap the box. This gives the illusion that the gift is something else and leads to surprise upon finding a small picture in the end.

Alternative Wrapping for Eco-Friendly Options

For eco-friendly wrapping, use old newspapers or magazines for the wrapping paper. Alternatively, make a small cloth bag by cutting two pieces of fabric and sewing them together with one side left open. When lining it up to sew, put the right sides together so that the inside faces out. Leave one side open and flip the bag right-side out. Put the picture in the bag and tie it off with a ribbon.

Gift in a Gift

For a gift of a fabric item such as a shirt, trousers or a sweater, put the picture in a frame or photo album, put it into the shirt and then wrap up the shirt in wrapping paper, a bag or any preferred object. This keeps the photo a surprise until the other present is found, making it a double present, which adds an element of personalisation to the gift.
