The Spruce has 6 nifty ways to gift-wrap for birthdays and special occasions. (Click on the link, and you'll even get a how-to video.) This one particularly caught my eye:
Use any one of a menagerie as pack animals. Simple & effective.
Lions and tigers and bears. (oh my)
Choose your recipient's favorite animal -- they're easy to find on Amazon and at any basic toy area, including the dollar store. (In fact, there's a cow statue in our local Walmart's clearance area that I may just have to get now.)
Couldn't you see these with tiny wreaths or jingle bells around their necks for Christmas? Or expand the idea to other 'holders:' tiny cars, dump trucks, artificial flowers, even realistic figures. (I suddenly thought of Bigfoot! Sorry, couldn't help it.)
