Gift Totes

Our first wrapping paper alternative is the gift tote. Package gifts in bright, festive, and patterned tote bags for an extremely easy and pretty alternative to paper gift wrap. You’ll love the time spent on wrapping and they’ll love the present as well as the reusable tote bag!

Another festive and easy option is to package presents in gift bags. But not just any gift bag, opt for well-structured, patterned, and gorgeous gift bags for a beautiful presentation they’ll love.


Gift Boxes

Gift boxes are another great alternative to traditional gift wrap. We like this gift box version because it comes complete with a pretty pattern and bow. All you have to do is add a gift!

This idea comes directly from Japan. Reuse old scarves to prettily wrap up presents. With a little careful tucking and folding, you’ll have an attractive, wrapped present in no time.


Brown Bags

We like this idea because A) You likely already have these supplies in-house, and  B) They’re easy to make. All you need is brown bags, clothes pins, paint, and creativity for a rustic-looking, DIY packaged gift.
