Small but pleasant dilemma smile I really want to wrap ds's present because he won't get much else - we've got him a new bike jointly with all the grandparents, plus helmet, lock, lights etc etc. He's going to love it. But I'm just thinking how to wrap it. He's over five feet tall now so it's a small adult type size. Do you wrap bikes?? If so, what have you used?

I just cut the wrapping paper into long thin pieces and wrapped them around every where
So it was obviously a bike, but wrapped and a big bow on the handle bars

You can get bike wrap in poundland!

When we gave DS a bike, we just draped a sheet over it. Could use a Christmassy table cloth to make it more festive.

When my DB and I got bikes for Christmas my mum and dad didn't wrap them but hid them in the garage and created a treasure hunt with rhyming clues to lead us there.

I still remember the excitement over 20 years later smile

Could you paper over the door of the room it is in?

Halfords do big bike bags that are Christmas patterned

I'd probably just drape sheets of wrapping paper over it, that's what my mum did for my db when we were younger
