(Redirected from Wrapping paper)
Wrapping Paper is an item in Animal Crossing: New Leaf that can be purchased from the Nookling Stores. It allows the player to wrap an item to look like a present. Items wrapped by players, however, will look different than items wrapped by villagers. Wrapped items can be given as gifts (useful for when a villager celebrates their birthday) or mailed with letters. When placed in a house, wrapped items fall on the floor instead of turning into furniture. They count towards trash when being graded by the Happy Home Academy.
Initially, Timmy and Tommy would give an explanation about how the use the Wrapping Paper every time it was bought, but in the Welcome amiibo update, they give the explanation only the first time the item is purchased.
