This is kind of cute, especially if you are giving a gift to someone who loves crossword puzzles. On the other hand, does it say you didn’t care enough to find gift wrap that is special for the recipient?
You can find gift wrap that is good for most occasions, but most people keep birthday wrap & Christmas wrap on hand. One of my favorites over the years was a paper with various crayons & some scribbles from them. I’d often add some messages written with crayons (have to use them for something, right?). I felt that was a bit creative.
My all time favorite gift wraps are those that are reusable. Gift bags are good for that, but don’t usually last more than 2 or 3 times. If you make a fabric gift bag it becomes part of the gift & helps people use less plastic bags. I do like the Japanese artful tying of fabric to present gifts. It’s creative, beautiful, shows you went to some trouble, and does not contribute to landfills. It’s helpful to include a note with it about reusing it.
