From Designer Booze Branding to LCD Stationery

These gift-giving innovations make the process of birthdays and other celebrations all the more enjoyable.

From unbelievably odd wrapping paper to ridiculously customized cards, giving a gift has never been so high-tech or futuristic as it is now. Wrapping paper specifically has been a site for great creativity, particularly with regard to humor and satire. Stationery, and cards given alongside gifts, have also gotten a more likable and personal update, and have become special presents in their own right. Though the price tag on these innovations might bring up the overall cost of a gift, the joyful outcome of these products is well worth the extra splurge.

Surprising, high-tech and often hilarious, these gift-giving innovations are as celebratory as the goods that they cover up.
