Ideas for Making "Presents"

I would like to create a more "traditional" Christmas setting in a house I'm working on. This would include things like a hearth, tree, wreaths and presents. I have at least figured out how I'm going to do the other items but I have no idea how to make presents that I can put under the tree or in a big pile of even spread around the house while still using as little items as possible.

So I'm turning to the awesome housing community for ideas! Please discuss and share screenshots if you can.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I was going to use the "Dragon Hoard" gold pile furnishing strategically and arrange boxes of fruit etc on top to make it look varied and not quite so shiny!
    Not sure if it'll work, though. Feel free to try!

    Edited to mention - The Best part is the furnishing is considered a collectable or special furnishing so won't take up a regular furnishing spot!!!

    Jester's Boxes also look very nice on a table or hearth. Plus, your visitors can actually open the gift!!!!

    Oops! Sorry just noticed your jester's box on table. Show, don't tell.

    I can guarantee that Amethyst geode (from Brazil) isn't in game, or I'd have 20% of all housing dedicated to it!

    Here are a couple of pictures of the trees I put up in our guild house the last two years. Hope you get some ideas :smile:

    They should really provide a pile of wrapped presents, via the event, or something.

    Also, a star (which lights up) for the top of the tree and some baubles to decorate the tree.

    Ideally, both would come in two sizes - so, you can use the larger versions for fir trees outside.

    There are also some wrapped packages you can buy via the Crown store but, although they are nice, they aren't really festive, as such.

    In real life, I like to put flowers on presents instead of ribbons. You could use the daedra thorn and pale garden flowers to stick on top of some boxes. I imagine they'd look lovely as tree ornaments, too!

    This movie and song really describe the mood I've been in--not over Halloween but ready for Christmas. What a relatable, cinematic treasure!

    I'm kind of late but here are some additional ideas. The various Alinor jewelry boxes would look good under a tree. They are available in the housing editor crown tab for 100 - 190 Crowns. There are also the Hlaalu, Indoril and Scrimshaw boxes and canisters which are craftable or purchased through the housing editor. As part of the Parlor Knick-Knacks there are also some figurines that again can be crafted or purchased. Lastly don't forget about the Sweetrolls.
