Introduction:Christmas wrapping paper can get expensive if you are a generous gift giver. Wrap your gifts in an unusual manner and both the gift and the giver get special attention.
If the recipient of your gift is a crafter or a quilter, fabric is a great gift wrap that shows just how thoughtful you are.
What better way to show your concern about the environment than to give a gift wrap that can easily be saved from year to year.
Buy the inexpensive type at the dollar store and feel free to use either side. It molds around corners a thousand times better than gift wrap. Add some fancy ribbons and bows and your gift will glow under the tree.
I have a dozen of these in my closet in various sizes and I never have enough. Place your gift inside the appropriate size bag, tie the handles with red and green ribbon and you're a hero.
Not long ago, the only grocery reusable bags were pretty plain, but now you can get them in all kinds of themes. My father-in-law is a Red Sox fan, so I purchased a Red Sox bag, which I'll put his ugly tie in. Maybe, just maybe, I can get him out of the habit of using those wasteful cheap plastic bags the grocery stores hand out.
Is the recipient of your gift a wine lover? Most liquor store, and many fine restaurants, may have empty wooden boxes with the winemaker's logo on it. Pack your gift in strips of colorful shredded paper and keep it hidden until it's time to give the gift.
We can't give everyone expensive gifts, so taking the time to wrap in an unusual way says you took the time and you care about them!
I love these ideas for something different. H5 list.
I like the aluminum foil idea. H5
Great ideas for wrapping gifts. I especially like the idea of using aluminum foil because we can recycle it when we're done!
