No-Sew Leather Bags
The best things may come in small packages, but a thoughtful wrapper can be a gift all its own.

Using a circle cutter, cut out a four-to-seven-inch round piece of leather (size it for the item you want to enclose), then add holes an inch apart around the edge with a screw punch.
Thread cord through all the holes, then feed the ends through one more hole each, to create the loose tie needed to cinch the pouch closed.
Slip a surprise inside, and pull the ends tight.
