yes,

Not sure if it's what you mean, but I'll tell the story anyway;

One Christmas when I was a kid I'd bought my mum some earrings she'd been commenting on. Then one day and my mum were out in town looking at random things and passed a game. You know the sort where you play darts or hook a duck to win a cute thing. Well she really liked these little rabbits wearing dresses they were giving away as prizes and commented on it. So, the next day or so, after school I went into town and played said game to win one of these rabbits. I put the earrings onto the rabbit's ears and wrapped in cellophane with ribbon. She opened it delighted but it took her ages to notice the earrings! Which was an even bigger surprise as she only thought I'd won her a rabbit. ^__^

this might not be what you are looking for but this is a really cute idea.
many moons ago, my then-boyfriend bought a kinder-egg, very carefully unwrapped it (so as not to damage the foil wrapping), very carefully pried it in half (along the 'seam') took out the free toy and put in a special gift. then he put the two halfs together again, melting the seams back together (how???) and wrapped it all back up.

Well, if you're willing to ditch the box the bracelet came in...

Viv and Ingrid are pretty cool jewelry designers and they happen to put their jewelry in these really cute fabric pouches (see link below) (and no, I have no affiliation with V&I, I just got done buying stuff from their website  Wink)

Anyway, it would be pretty easy to make a fabric envelope that you could slip the bracelet in, then tie with ribbon or make a ribbon band like in the link. Looks cute and professional and if you're anything like me you might have fabric scraps sitting around that could be put to good use.

Hope that helps!

I usually put the stuff I make/buy into fancy little boxes that can be reused or repurposed as something else.  Then it's kind of like having two presents. 

I put a bracelet for a friend in a candy dish once and covered the bracelet with her favorite candy and put the whole thing in a box and wrapped it in fabric.  She didn't know it was in there til she was done eating all of the candy.  (just make sure it's something she won't toss out!)

You could also wrap it in several boxes inside of other boxes (like Russian dolls!) and let her constantly unwrap boxes and maybe have something in each box like candy or cards or something.  I do this with my niece and nephew but I duct tape their gifts shut  Roll Eyes  They always say it annoys them but the truth is they look forward to finding what's inside the duct taped gifts each year and it builds 20 mins of unwrapping suspense!
