Use fabric

Check your closet and see if you have printed pieces that you no longer wear or use. Make sure that there are no holes and choose ones with interesting prints and textures. You can use these as wrappers—just pair it with a cute card and ribbon.

Recycle old scraps of paper

We’re sure you have tons of extra papers from your home office or your kids’ stationeries. Repurpose them as wrappers for your gifts. If the papers are a bit plain, spruce them up with colorful markers and stickers.

Print photos and use these as gift tags

Here's an easy way to add a personal touch to your gifts! Print out photos of your friends and use it as gift tags. Choose photos that shows a happy memory or a memorable trip. We're sure that they would love to keep it as remembrance. This is also a wonderful idea if you're using a plain wrapper.

Utilize paper bags

Giving away treats to your kids' classmates or brownies to your neighbors? Paper bags can be reused—especially if you are giving away treats and goodies. Put candies and chocolates inside each bag and seal them using Christmas-themed stickers.
