It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have adopted a very neutral aesthetic in recent years—look no further than Kim’s muted wardrobe, their extremely minimalist home decor or their low-key 2019 Christmas card to prove it. So it’s fitting that, for the holidays, the famous duo has also opted for an equally colorless palette.
Kardashian took to social media on Friday (December 20) to share pictures of her family’s wrapped Christmas gifts. She explained the look, writing, “West Holiday wrapping this year! Each year every family member pics a color and vibe so we know who the gifts are from. This year we chose creamy velvet!”
The velvet swaddled gifts are a look to say the least. Many on Instagram wondered how you can even wrap gifts with thick fabric (how do you tape it closed?) while others found the presents lacking in festive cheer thanks to the beige tones and absence of traditional holiday motifs. (Don’t expect to see a snowman or Rudolph under the Kardashian-West tree.)
“Who told Kim Kardashian that it was cute to wrap gifts in bed sheets… she really tried it,” one person tweeted. “This [is] worse than wrapping your textbook in a paper bag when you ran out of book covers,” another added.
While another person on Instagram jokingly compared them to Star Wars: “How many Sand Raiders from Tatooine were hurt in the wrapping of these presents?” they penned.
Meanwhile, others appreciated Kardashian-Wests eco-friendly approach to the holidays.
“Great reusable gift wrapping…no trees hurt! Good going usable year after year after year…..Never out of style! Love it,” one person commented on Instagram. Another wrote, “At least they’re not wasting paper!”
This isn’t the first time Kardashian has divided the Internet with her Christmas decor. Earlier this month, the KKW entrepreneur shared the all-white “whimsical” and “Whoville”-inspired trees in her home. While some called the Seussian decorations unique and chic, others were left comparing the decorations to tampons and cotton balls.
