    I love Natalie’s wrapping! That is exactly the look I would like for my own presents if I had the ambition…

  2. Beth Mae 12/01/2015 at 2:13 pm #

    Gotta go Joe! Love the Candy wrapping, so clever!

  3. Andrea 12/02/2015 at 9:22 am #

    While Natalies gift wrap is beautiful, I’m giving Joe the win for creativity. Not often will you find a giant candy under a tree. The packaging is fun and exciting.

  4. Cheri 12/02/2015 at 10:04 am #

    I love both, but I have to go with the simple elegance of Natalie’s!

  5. Link 12/02/2015 at 3:57 pm #

    Going to have to go with Joe. That’s very clever.

  6. Becky 12/02/2015 at 4:13 pm #

    Joe wins my vote… Although Natalie’s is pretty great too.

  7. Belinda 12/02/2015 at 4:14 pm #

    Gotta go with Natalie- simplistic elegance ! Love the touch of fresh greens.

  8. Melissa 12/02/2015 at 4:38 pm #

    I pick joe. Because I like candy

  9. Gab 12/02/2015 at 4:41 pm #

    Natalie gets my vote. Simple and rustic-and who doesn’t want a fresh green wreath + a present?

  10. Joy DeFerrari 12/02/2015 at 4:51 pm #

    Both are great but Joe gets my vote for how unique and fun his idea is! This is sure to put smiles on faces of all ages!

  11. Marne (ModCloth) 12/02/2015 at 5:35 pm #

    Boooooo Joe!
    Yay Natalie!


  12. Rachel 12/02/2015 at 5:40 pm #

    Joe’s is really cute, but my pick is Natalie’s. The fresh wreath is such a nice touch! It looks great! Love it!!

  13. Cathy 12/02/2015 at 5:47 pm #

    I vote for Joe. Would look great decorating any tree.

  14. Hayley 12/02/2015 at 6:03 pm #

    Joe’s is cute, but my vote is for Natalie! I love the brown paper package tied up with string…especially if it’s a gift from her because she always gets my favorite thing!! Also love the fact I can use the wreath as a decoration!

  15. Emily (ModCloth) 12/02/2015 at 6:03 pm #

    While I appreciate Joe’s creative approach to wrapping candy (candy wrapped candy, anyone?), the cellophane feels a bit unresolved. I think Natalie’s strategy is tasteful and festive. GREAT JOB, NATALIE!

  16. Pam 12/02/2015 at 6:11 pm #

    I vote for Natalie. Joe’s Is very sweet, but Natalie’s simple brown package with the Mistletoe- like wreath brings back memories of when Christmas was less commercialized. 🙂

  17. Cheryl 12/02/2015 at 8:15 pm #

    I vote for Joe…..Natalie’s is nice too, I just like the huge piece of candy look that Joe’s has!!!!

  18. Nimrod 12/02/2015 at 8:46 pm #

    Natalie all the way!!

  19. Dawn 12/02/2015 at 8:50 pm #

    I vote for Natalie because her package is more creative!

  20. Wayne 12/02/2015 at 8:51 pm #

    Joe’s is clever, but gonna have to go with Natalie on this one. Hers feels more holiday-specific.

  21. Hamburguesa 12/02/2015 at 8:55 pm #

    I choose Natalie!

    Joe gets my vote for sure! The peppermint candy-inspired paper with the cellophane wrapping!? I might have to steal this…

  25. John Carman 12/03/2015 at 8:41 pm #

    I’m probably gonna buy someone candy just to use Joe’s idea.
