Wrapping Advice

On the WPBP recently, several people said they were good wrappers.  That's good because I need wrapping advice!

Our niece is really into a priness phase right now.  She loves dressing up like a princess.  So for Christmas, FI and I bought her a dress up princess gown.  The issue is that this dress has a hoop skirt.  The hoop is about 20" in diameter.

How in the world do we wrap this???

    I'd start by finding/buying a box that it would fit into, then wrap the box.

    That's just me though :-)

    I think I would go the gift bag route for this one. There are those really big ones out there that can fit kid's bikes and rocking horses. I'm sure those would be hoop skirt friendly.

    Dollar stores usually have gigantic gift bags... I've bought a few at the Dollar Tree, myself, for easy wrapping..

    I'd suggest finding a big box.  As a child, and even now as an adult, there's just something more exciting about tearing wrapping paper off a box...much more exciting than just reaching my hand into a bag and pulling out my gift...but that's just me. :)

    I'd look for a box that fits frames for pictures. Large poster sized ones. You can put the hoop skirt in there.....OR you could always just keep it hidden and have a bow on it.
