Cheeseburger Wrapping Paper: Perfect for a Belated Christmas Gift (Video)

If you've been searching for the perfect way to wrap your favorite foodie's gift but the gingerbread men and candy canes just aren't edgy enough, how about wrapping their gifts with a burger?

Start-up company Gift Couture has come out with a wildly delicious and inventive way to wrap gifts. Wrapping paper comes in five different graphic rolls: bun, burger, cheese, lettuce, and tomato. So... if you wrap six packages (one each for buns), you'll get a perfect burger stack of gifts.  We've figured out some additional combinations, like:

Bun, lettuce, tomato, bun  = a veggie sandwich for vegan friends.

Bun lettuce, tomato, cheese, bun = for your vegetarian friends.

lettuce, tomato, cheese, burger = for your celiac friends.

Bun, lettuce, tomato, burger, bun = for your kosher friends.

The combinations are endless.


a downside to this awesomeness, though. The company is still trying to

get funding for this project through Kickstarter. So far, it's

raised $1,700 with $7,600 needed by January. If you pledge a

donation of $20, you'll be sent a set of this cool wrapping paper

sometime in February. Use it for Valentine's Day, or put it away from

Christmas 2012.
