How to Gift Wrap an Oil Rig

Just a few weeks ago an oil rig, the Transocean Winner, beached on the Isle of Lewis, here in the Western Isles where I live.

Interestingly I grew up on the Black Isle where we are used to seeing lots of oil rigs in the Cromarty Firth but this oil rig is the first squint, or leaning, oil rig I’ve ever seen.

There was much consternation when it washed up about keeping people away from it. Oil rigs aren’t seen often in the Outer Hebrides. Some said there was a fear that someone could put their hand on it and claim salvage – but what would you do with an oil rig? Christmas present? And if so – how would you wrap it?!

So I gift wrapped an oil rig!

…and if you can gift wrap an oil rig – especially a squint one, then I figure you can gift wrap just about anything!

What’s the most unusual thing you’ve gift wrapped? Let me know by leaving a comment.

Thank you
