Last year for Christmas I purchased multiple presents and presented them in a giant plastic sled and it looked adorable!
This year I'm having trouble thinking of something to present the gifts in that is different and will also be appealing/large. Thanks for any help provided!

Without knowing what kind of gifts, size, or the audience, here are my suggestions:

Toy Box
big plastic bucket with the rope handles
wheel barrow

I agree that without knowing the age of the recipient it is hard to make suggestions that fit. So, here are some in general suggestions in hopes that one works for you: a small wagon, a flower cart, a flower pot, X-mas decorative basket, wicker magazine holder, or a cooking pot. This was harder than I thought. That is the best I can do without knowing the ages of the recipient.

Thank you for your responses. (: It's much appreciated. I apologize for the lack of information. The recipient is my 20 year old boyfriend and some of the gifts will be rather large.

Does he live at home? Not that we want to be nosey, but just be mindful of space concerns if he lives in a dorm.
"Rather large" gifts might not be able to travel with him there and will be regulated to being used during the summer months while he is back home from school.

You can get foot lockers at places like target and walmart. You could get one that is kindof plain and then decorate it, or find his favorite color. That way it is something he will be able to use after the fact.

Flying ace, the footlocker thing is such a great idea. IT is large enough for so many treasures and it is something that is really useful.

Thanks, but admittedly not my idea :) When I graduated high school, some of my family members all pitched in and bought one and filled it will all of the college essentials (school supplies, snacks, bedding, towels, etc) It was overflowing with stuff. I barely had to buy anything. My mom told me later that she made a 'wedding registry' of college stuff at Target so my out of town family could just buy stuff and send it to the person putting it all together.

I coupon and I a lot of Tide laundry detergent (my husband is allergic to it). So I wrapped the bottles of Tide in tissue paper, tied ribbon's around the tissue paper, attaching the gift card, and then put them in the gift bags. My sister loved it.

As Christmas gifts, a bottle of Tide might suit, but you might have fun just for the season if you tried a book good for the whole family.

Christmas Day In The Morning
A jolly Christmas story about a greedy naughty boy who opens his presents and among them finds a lump of coal. A humorous tale for the whole family.
Free on Black Friday. $2.99 after that.
