Coconut Milk Can | Gift Wrap Everywhere

Gift Wrap Everywhere highlights items I've run across in daily life that are perfect for unconventional gift wrapping. Seriously, gift wrap is everywhere!



I've always enjoyed this type of coconut milk can. It probably hasn't had a redesign since the '80s, and the graphics are printed right onto the smooth sides of the can.

Add gauzy tissue to make an unconventional gift 'box'...

or finish it off with a ribbon to add a bit of polish to this otherwise quirky gift wrapping!

Don't cook with coconut milk? Try a nod to Andy Warhol with a classic red-and-white Campbell's soup can. Feeling impish? Take the bottom off the can and fill it from the underside!

    1. Hi Michele - Thank you! With your stash of recyclables I'm sure you could come up with an interesting twist on tin-can gift wrapping. Maybe a stack of cans, each with a little something inside?
