Creative gift wrapping ideas

Filed Under: seasonal, staying green

Samantha holding Christmas presentsNormal is boring when it comes to wrapping gifts. Stores abound with rolls of cheap gift wrap, so it is much easier to just spend our money and wrap the presents we intend to give to our loved ones with those cheap rolls of paper.

This holiday season, you can be the furthest from normal that you can possibly get by browsing around your house and wrap up your presents using the odds and ends that you would most likely either toss in your recycling bin or in the trash. Real Simple gives us creative wrapping ideas and suggests that we can use our newspaper to wrap up gifts, use a jump rope instead of ribbon for a child's gift, use a dishtowel to wrap up a bottle of wine, tie up gifts with ponytail holders, use greeting cards for gift tags, and use old calendar pages as gift wrap.

Basically, anything that you have in your house can be given a second purpose and be used to wrap up your Christmas gifts. Feel free to leave us a comment and tell us how you wrap up your gifts.
