These are pairs of groups of books wrapped and meant to be checked out and unwrapped at home. With RFID they can be checked out while still wrapped, and without the patron knowing what they are (unless they look at the checkout screen or slip). – Todd Mecklem.

What’s written on the labels of each gift? Brilliant idea… thanks for sharing!
We’ve done this at my previous library before, I suspect the tags read the genre or other descriptive terms of the books inside (“Drama/Romance”, “to be read while snuggling at the fireplace” etc.´) 😛
