Epic Wrap Battles, Round 3: Veggie Vibes vs. Meat-Lovin’ Magic (No, Really)

It’s our final round of gift-wrapping showdowns, and boy, are we going out with a bang. So far, you’ve seen artfully outfitted packages, both contemporary and classic. This week, our two contestants are taking things way outside the gift box in the ultimate battle of taste. Ladies and gentlemen, now entering the kitchen — er, craft room — are our challengers…


Graphic Designer Bree vs. Senior Copy & Content Strategist Anna

(a.k.a. The Maiden of Meat vs. The Vegetarian Visionary)

A little backstory: Anna (that’s me, by the way) and Bree sit across from each other in our Pittsburgh office. For all the things that unite them — a love of beanies, yoga, grilled cheese, really big coffees, and Pinterest — there’s always been one issue that the two agree to disagree on. Bree loves meat. I mean loves. Bacon, jerky, flank steak, fish sticks — one whiff of the salty, savory stuff is all it takes to send Bree swooning. On the flip side, Anna is a vegetarian. This gal prefers the produce section (or HELLO, a well-stocked salad bar) to a deli counter any day. Is it crunchy? Is it colorful? Does she have to cook it? Oh, not necessarily? Then let ‘er at it! (She’s a vegetarian, not a chef, people.)

Of course, Bree and Anna’s conflicting food feels are finally coming to a head in the most obvious of avenues — a holiday gift wrapping challenge! Whose palette appeals to you? Will it be…

About Anna

Anna's the kind of don't-take-yourself-too-seriously gal who can spend an evening at Monday Night Raw and then turn around and write about nail designs and glitter with just as much sincere, unadulterated delight. She's a firm believer in cats' ability to see ghosts, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the fact that if she wishes enough, she'll never have to iron again.

    Veggie all the way! Anna is the coolest! Merry Christmas to both of you!
    P.S. I haven’t eaten meat in 15 years and I don’t miss it.

    I like the peek of meat. Nothing says Christmas like a box full of salami!

    Both are super creative. But as a vegetarian, I have to vote for Anna. Who knew tissue paper could look so much like salad greens?

    Seriously, just the classiest meat package I have ever seen. 🙂

    I’d make a meat pun, but I’d prolly butcher it. BREE.

    It’s all about the meat sweats!

    BREE! Can’t beat that meat!

  16. Julie O 12/15/2015 at 3:00 pm #

    The steaks are high here… while Anna’s wrap job is cleaver, my vote goes to Bree.

  17. Sarah 12/15/2015 at 3:05 pm #

    Anna!! <3

    Haha, best one yet. Although I am a meat eater, I do appreciate vegetarian dishes. But that is besides the point because visually, Anna’s gift is spectacular, even though Bree’s gift has an adorable darker humor. But… Anna. her wrapping just looks sooo cute. PS the facial expressions are hilarious.

    Bree all the way

    Bree Is my Winner

    Bree for sure, you can’t go wrong with meat wrapped in twine.

  26. Jackie Lambes 12/15/2015 at 10:01 pm #

    They are both so clever! For me it’s a tie!!

    Anna! Love the leafy greens of her packaging!

  29. Leslie Smith 12/16/2015 at 8:31 am #

    As a fellow vegetarian and mom to Anna, I must vote for the beautiful veggie packaging. Good luck to both Anna and Bree.

  30. Elaine 12/16/2015 at 7:33 pm #

    Bree: I approve of serif fonts!

  31. Gemma Longbottom 12/16/2015 at 8:11 pm #

    Bree ~ the packaging is almost edible itself!
