Disguise Ugly Electronics by Wrapping Them for the Holidays

It's the holiday season, which means gadgets and toys galore for many of us. One problem is that they can be so ugly. Case in point:


This inductive charger. It's so ugly! It sits there on the nightstand. It goes with nothing. It collects dust and hair and it shows immediately.

The solution is obvious: give it a little holiday gift wrap! It retains its wonderfully convenient utility and serves to make the room look better instead of worse.


Other ideas for temporary wrapping:

- Not-festive-enough hanging pictures/mirrors

- Xbox Kinect (minus holes for the sensors)

- Clocks (minus the hands)

Do you have any holiday decoration hacks that you'd like to share? Do so below (or in your own Hackerspace post).


Edit: As suggested in the comments, it might be a good idea to use common sense when wrapping electronics that get hot.
