[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* In the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode ''Film/SantaClausConquersTheMartians'', Dr Forrester's entry in the invention exchange is a machine that transforms presents. All of these presents are wrapped with Hollywood Giftwrap, with lids on the top and the bottom, as a transparently low tech way to depict the transformation of the presents: Clayton opens the top lid to show there's a videogame cartridge in the box, he puts the lid back on and runs it through the machine, then he flips the box over and opens the lid from the other side to reveal that the package now contains socks.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tattletail}}'': Your Christmas present, the titular Tattletail arrives in one of these. This is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that the game requires the player to open their Christmas present early and then place it back in the box - this would be ''very'' hard to accomplish if the player's parents had simply wrapped the present up in wrapping paper and the player tore it off.

[[AC: Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' Connie tells Steven not to unwrap the birthday present she got him because she deliberately got a box with a pull-off lid, even saying it looks like she did more work than she did. Later (during a {{Flashback}}), Garnet gives baby Steven a present wrapped the exact same way, and gives about the same explanation of the wrap job that Connie does. Oddly, Pearl and Amethyst also give Steven presents at this time, but theirs are wrapped the normal way with the paper having to be ripped off to reveal their gifts.

* Gift boxes of this fashion show up often in Christmas-themed heists of ''VideoGame/Payday2'', used to covertly transport Columbian cocaine in "White Xmas" and found around certain departments of the shopping mall in "Stealing Xmas". How the former manage to stay closed in this fashion after having been dropped from a plane that crashed in the woods is a mystery... much like how the gifts can contain anything from medical kits, to a few stacks of cash, and even giant slices of toast with cheese on them instead of what the plane was actually transporting.

transporting. They also show up in "Stealing Xmas", which makes sense considering it's set in a shopping mall around Christmas.
