Great gift wrap ideas for bulky & odd-shaped kitchen gifts

The best way to gift-wrap a bulky or odd-shaped kitchen appliance or utensil is — don’t! Give it a fanciful shape, instead — with Christmas paper, ribbons, gay ornaments, and such.

Take an electric blender, for instance, and turn it into a frothy pink strawberry soda. Turn an electric tea kettle into a cocky rooster with wattles and comb of curly ribbon.

With a little imagination, a vacuum cleaner turns into Santa Claus, an oven-proof casserole into a sailboat, a coffee maker into a candlestick. We put a golden sunburst on an electric frying pan and king-and-queen crowns on a set of wooden canisters. Gaily wrapped gifts pop out of a toaster.

P.S. Don’t misplace the instruction book and the warranty!
