Half the fun of a holiday gift is opening it. It’s even better if the gift is beautifully wrapped. But not every gift giver has been blessed with the talent of creating wow-worthy packages.
Thankfully, a new Alexandria-based startup is here to help. Cloaked Box—launched last year by local entrepreneurs Sarah Kooiker and Solomon Tibebu—offers everything you need to make your holiday presents look perfect, no tape, scissors or bow tying required.
Now available online at Walmart and Amazon (plus at a pop-up kiosk at Fashion Centre at
Pentagon City through Dec. 31, the wrapping kit includes a box, peel-and-stick gift wrap, tissue paper, a bow, card and envelope.
The paper is already attached to the box, so all you have to do is put your present in. The best part, says Kooiker, “You still get to rip into it, which you don’t get with a printed box.”// from $7.50 per package
