Honestly, it would be more convenient if you had it shipped to the address on the registry and give her a card at the wedding with a little picture of it inside.  You could also just write something cute about it, like hope the magic mixer brings you a lifetime of perfect cakes…

I’m not sure…my mom wrapped mine just fine though.

Oh my god, can you be my friend?? I already have a KitchenAid mixer but here in Australia I had to pay around $650 for it, ouchiwawa. 


Just get a lot of wrapping paper, that’ll do it. You might need two rolls but it is entirely possible.

nothing is too big to wrap, ever.  I’ve done magical things with gianormous boxes, it just takes some time and creativity.  I probably would have just paid for the registry place to wrap it in this case and had it delivered directly to the recipient in this case but too late for that now.

Its not impossible to wrap, a few friends and I got a girlfriend one for her shower and we were able to wrap it, but I don’t have any pics for you.  That being said it is rather large and you’ll probably need a lot of paper.  Another option would be to take a picture of one and enclose that in a card then give her the big box after and you won’t have to worry about wrapping it.

Well, if it’s this box then I don’t see a problem, you wrap a pretty paper and stick on a pretty bow and you’re good to go!

It’s no harder to wrap than any other large present like luggage.

You can get the dimensions off vendor’s websites so you will know ahead of time what length and width of wrapping paper you will need.

Another idea is to wrap it in a tablecloth. Add a couple of great silicone spatulas for a bow decoration.

You can definitely use gift wrap. My sister wrapped one for me for last Christmas and I’m sure there wasn’t a problem.

I got one for Christmas two years ago from my parents (I’m not spoiled, I swear – it was my only gift that year and I’d been asking for one since I was in junior high!) – they had it wrapped like a normal gift – I think they had to use longer wrapping paper than standard, but it was just wrapped like normal.

A warning, though – they are HEAVY, so make sure you can carry it after you’ve wrapped it (and don’t use glittery wrapping paper or something since you’ll likely be carrying it against your body).

It’s too heavy to put in a bag and carry by the handles. To not tempt the fate of having someone pick it up by bag handles and it rip the bag, i’d just wrap it with wrapping paper. Problem solved!
