I've never seen anything like this! It is so simple and all my gifts turn out looking great. Love that it is reusable

With one pull of a ribbon, the Wizzy Wrap™ gift is wrapped with this fun to use, elegant, and reusable invention. The Wizzy Wrap™, invented by a father of three who struggled to wrap with paper, has made his innovative solution available to the public. Being environmentally sustainable does not need to mean sacrificing quality or value. The Wizzy Wrap™ is easier and faster to use than wrapping paper and fabric makes for a beautiful presentation.

“I can’t wrap with paper to save my life, and I hate throwing away nice wrapping paper,” says Tonio Palmer, the inventor. “So I thought there must be a better way.”
The Wizzy Wrap™ is made of high quality fabric with a ribbon laced around the edges. The ribbon is secured with a cord lock, so with one pull of the ribbon the Wizzy Wrap™ lifts up around the gift and the wrapping is done. A single or double bow can be tied to complete the process and two buttonholes along the edge allow for personalization. It also makes a great gift idea.
While gift bags are functional, they lack the suspense and presentation important when giving gifts, so Palmer came up with the idea of the Wizzy Wrap™. He worked with Northampton, MA-based fashion designer Athan Vennell, who made the Wizzy Wrap™ a reality and who put together the initial collection of 20 styles.
Designed and manufactured to last a long time, the Wizzy Wrap™ can become a family heirloom passed back and forth over many years. The first collections include five holiday-themed Wraps, general and birthday gift patterns, and three bridal or baby shower styles. Available in four sizes, the round design can accommodate even the most unusually shaped gifts. Over time, different designs will be added to the collection.
The Wizzy Wrap™ first shipped in November 2010 during the soft launch, and the initial response has been very enthusiastic. “Everyone loves them,” says Palmer, who eagerly awaited feedback from the first customers. “I’ve been pleased with the response and people agree it is a great, simple idea. Men particularly appreciate the speed and ease with which one can wrap beautifully, while women tend to focus on the nice fabrics and the reusability of the Wizzy Wraps™.”
“Using the Wizzy Wrap™ is causing people to think a little differently about gift wrap. All of a sudden the wrapping is a gift as well,” notes Palmer. Some people want to know if they can take the Wizzy Wrap™ back. And not everyone is “re-gifting” the Wizzy Wrap™, they are being put around potted plants, used as table covers and are even used to hide computer screens.
Wizzy Wraps™ will soon be available through retail stores, but are currently sold on-line from the Wizzy Wrap™ website (http://www.wizzywrap.com). The Wizzy Wraps™ are manufactured in the USA by the Housatonic Curtain Company, a 100% subsidiary of Country Curtains of Stockbridge, MA, with over 50 years of experience in making and selling high quality curtains and home good products.
