Heaven help the people who dare to tear into these packages instead of gently opening each seam.

1. Wrapping Paper With Personalized Photos Peeking Through Cut-Outs

2. Chalkboard-Inspired Wrap (Including A Handy Guide To Pens)

3. Individual Wreaths

4. Specially-Designed Hand-Cut Typographic Gift Wrap

5. Woven Ribbon That You Know Would Just End Up With You Cursing

6. Bunting Made By Cutting Individual Triangles From Paper Tape
