Gift Wrap.............

Holiday Gift Wrap Options...................

  • Old maps, sheet music or colorful ads from old magazines
  • Baskets
  • Reusable tins
  • Scarves and handkerchiefs
  • Leftover fabric or fabric gift bags
  • Lightweight wallpaper
  • Pages from a child's coloring book taped together
  • Newspapers (foreign newspapers are great) and Sunday comic pages
  • Last year's holiday paper (warm iron if wrinkled)
  • Pictures or advertisements from magazines and catalogs
  • A plain box decorated with leftover glitter, paint, markers, etc.
  • A useable cake pan or a wooden

When opening presents, save the wrapping paper, boxes, tins, ribbons and bows for next year. If you purchase gift wrap, look for wrapping paper and holiday cards with post-consumer recycled content, which avoids cutting down any new trees, and "closes the recycling loop".
