SNEAKY way to wrap a gift! HIDE ANYTHING - Great for parties! WHITE ELEPHANT gift IDEA

I couldn't post earlier because we did this for a friend for Christmas. She reads my blog and I didn't want to ruin the surprise. :) Her husband loved it!

Thank you text after opening bread, "HELL YEAH!" That's the kinda reaction we were hoping for. I'm sure the first reaction was, "BREAD? Gee, thanks"

This would be a great idea for a white elephant gift, bring to parties, house warming, gift for guys, birthdays, Christmas, Father's Day, New Year's Eve, 21st birthday, etc.

PLUS it doesn't have to be liquor, although this is awesome! You can HIDE ANYTHING! 

Fresh loaf of bread and Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka....yummmm! 

Cut and remove inside of bread. I pictured a spoon but this was much easier than I thought and I just used my hand

Now you are ready to hid something :)

Wrap bottle in a plastic bag, saran wrap, or cling wrap so the oil from the bread doesn't mess up the label

Carefully add bottle

Squeeze bread closed and roll in clear cellophane gift wrap or any other cellophane wrapping.

This is what I used but clear. It comes in tons of colors!

I found it at HEB with gold stars, polka dots, and birthday designs

Add ribbon and .....


I thought you would like some bread, isn't this just what you wanted? :)

I ended up making this for a birthday gift and my hubby insisted he needed one too.

    1. Thank you, Tracy! Is it funny that every time I look at a gift I wonder if it will fit in bread?? :) This is always a huge hit.

  2. Love this idea. Plan on using it for my man's birthday gift. ��

    1. Awesome! I bet he will love it! Thank you for the comment and stopping by!

  3. Super cute!! I pinned this under father's day, love it!!

    1. Thank you! I have given this so many times now and always a huge reaction. Father's Day would be awesome. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  4. Cute idea...I hope the bread can still be eaten...nothing like buying food to throw it out when people would give anything to have a loaf to eat.

    1. I'd definitely still eat it! It's wrapped in cellophane, so it's still fresh. Cut it up and dunk it in soup or stew. Or top it with a spread. Just because it's not in nice, neat slices doesn't mean it's not edible. The innards that get pulled out can be stored in a plastic bag until you're ready to use them. You can break it up and toast for croutons.

    2. Thank you! Exactly what she said. Great idea about the croutons. The last one I gave away was at a restaurant for a birthday and she opened it up and started eating it and dipping it in the olive oil.
