Make-me-smile in a brown paper bag

I guess most retailers have gimicks to make customers feel good about handing over their cash. When we visited Hobart in August, I enjoyed visiting Socrates in Salamanca Square: it's a sophisticated toy store with a high "wow" factor. Browsing there is fun enough, but I still enjoy looking at the brown paper bag our purchases came in!
The captions read:
kite.....fancy starter
O&Xs air balloon....painting canvas
origami....sun hat....waste bin....underpants
gift wrap....Christmas stocking....hiccup cure....magician's bag

Made from recycled paper. 90% of logged old growth forests end up as wood chips.
