‘QRistmas’ wrapping paper by the chase

UK-based studio the chase have designed several christmas wrapping paper using QR codes that suggest gift ideas when scanned.

‘whether it’s uncle brian, nanna carol or miss jones the nursery nurse, there’s always someone on your christmas list who, for whatever reason, is just impossible to buy for. so this year the chase have made finding the right thing – whoever it’s for, whatever the budget – that little bit easier.

from space hoppers to spa days, LEGO to lipstick, iPods to private islands their QRistmas wrapping paper links you to hundreds of gift ideas. each code also acts as a single pixel within an overall festive picture, giving you the option to find the perfect present and then wrap it in the paper, or brighten up your office with some seasonal posters.

recipients who scan the chase QR code are also invited to follow them and take part in their twitter QRistmas quiz, with the chance to take home one of a number of gifts featured on the wrapping paper.’ – the chase
