Regency - Victorian Gift Wrap
"Brown packages tied up with strings. These are a few of my favorite things".- The Sound of Music

Then in the mid 19th century Christmas Crackers (Bon Bons) started to vie for some of the most ornately wrapped gifts at the time. From looking at antique pictures most gifts were not wrapped with silver etched platters, toys, little potted plants such as African Violets and gift books laid as is under the tree.
