  1. Wrapping Paper can have any bow and box color, and will make the Present the corresponding colors. All the Wrapping Paper must be the same color.


Presents can be used to store single items inside of them, usually for the purpose of gifting the item in the Present to another player with it. To put an item in the Present, it can be put in the middle of the crafting grid in the recipe. Presents can be many different color combinations depending on the colors of the Wrapping Paper it is crafted with. A Present can be picked up by breaking it, but can be opened with right-click to open it so it drops the item. The Present's color does not display on the held block due to a bug.


  • There are 120 possible color combinations for a Present.
  • If TNT is put in a Present, it'll spawn as primed TNT when opened and will almost immediately detonate.
  • If a spawn egg is put in a Present, it'll spawn the mob when opened.

Aether I[]

Old Presents spawned near Christmas Trees, which were occasionally found in areas with snow. They could not be obtained as a block legitimately, unless in Creative Mode. Breaking a present would either spawn activated TNT, give experience or drop Ginger Bread Men, a Candy Cane, or a Candy Cane Sword. The spawned TNT would only destroy 1-2 blocks, and the spawned TNT or experience drops were the most likely results.


Mob-dropped presents will always drop one Paper along with their random item. Present drops are constant, so duplicating the same exact present will give off the same item The list below contains all possibilities of what can be obtained in dropped presents.
