Is there anything more awkward than showing up to a birthday party or a wedding and plunking down the smallest present on the gift table? It turns out that science can help compensate for your limited spending through some simple optical illusions. By wrapping your gift in this clever paper that makes it look like an apartment building, the human eye will see it as being much larger than it really is.
With the right angling and lighting, you can probably even make a tiny box of Tic Tacs make it look like you just dropped off a new refrigerator for the bride and groom. The human brain is so easily fooled, why not take advantage of it? And at just five bucks for a few sheets, it won't blow what limited gift budget you have. [Suck UK]
