The editors of Business Insider take Valentine’s Day very seriously, and this homemade bouquet of bacon roses proves it. Easy to make with only a few kitchen items – and, of course, juicy strips of bacon – it’s a fail-safe last-minute gift idea. (Unless your sweetheart is vegetarian. In which case, sorry.) The only challenge is not eating it all yourself first.

One of our favorite things about the holidays? Getting creative with our wrapping. Whether it’s with fun paper, metallic bows, or some classic twine, personalizing your wrapping – or your Rue boxes – is one of the best parts of the gift-giving season.

In honor of holiday creativity (and those exceptionally skilled at wrapping presents), we want to see your best-dressed Rue gifts! Send us a photo of the wrapped gifts you’re giving with the hashtag #VeryRueGift – you can leave them here in the comments, tweet us at @RueLaLa, post them to our Facebook wall, or even tag us on Instagram. We’ll share an album of our favorite ones after December 25.

So go ahead – prove you know just as much about wrapping gifts as you do buying them.
