Gift-giving is a skill; gift-wrapping is an art. When it comes to wrapping paper, we’re geeking out a little over here. Ideally we’d love some artisan-marbled paper to wrap our gifts, but most of us have to set our sights a little lower. Still, you don’t have to settle for whatever’s left over at your drugstore. These well-designed wrapping papers are so clever and unique they might actually outshine your gift.

Plantable Wrapping Paper (Blooming Plantables, $15.99)
There’s nothing more of a bummer than the pile of paper left over after everyone has torn through their gifts. You can feel a little less guilty with this awesome stuff: just plant the paper and watch it grow.
