Step #2: Select a Set of Christmas Lights
To light up the present I used a set of battery powered Christmas lights. These come in two major varieties. There are the traditional incandescent bulbs and there are LEDs. I recommend using LED lights because they are about ten time more efficient. So you can get a lot more light for the same amount of electricity. Also LED lights come in more varieties. I chose a set of ultra slim wire lights. These are small enough that they can fit underneath the wrapping paper or around any ribbons, bows or garland.
Step #6: Test the Range of the Inductive Charger
The ideal place to mount the receiver is inside the box. This keeps it concealed and out of the way. Unfortunately, the cardboard creates a gap between the transmitter and the receiver. This can cause problems for some models. So you need to test your inductive charger to see how big of a gap there can be between the transmitter and the receiver and still turn on the lights.
Step #10: Wrap Up the Present
Finally, place the gift inside the box and tape it closed. Now you just need to wrap the present and arrange the lights. How you wrap the present and arrange the lights is entirely up to you. You can wrap the lights around the box like a ribbon. You can put the lights under translucent paper so that they shine through it. You can wind the lights around a small piece of garland and put that around the box. Use your imagination and be creative.
