With these eco-friendly Christmas gift wrapping ideas we are being more conscious and creative. It can be so much fun!
Eco-Friendly Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas
1. Reuse Old Gift Wrapping
This is one of the easiest eco-friendly gift wrap ideas. It’s what we usually do in my family. Every Christmas, birthdays, etc; we make sure to open the presents as careful as we can. That way we can reuse the wrapping paper on a different occasion.
Not only you are being more sustainable, you are saving money as well!
2. Use Newspaper/Magazines To Wrap Gifts
Now, you might think that wrapping presents with the newspaper is not cute, but does it really matter? Besides, you don’t have to leave it just like that. The fun part with this wrapping idea, is that you get to be creative. Obviously, that is not necessary, the important part is that the gift is wrapped and it’s still a surprise.
If you want to add color to the wrapping, you can use wool (for pompoms), constructions paper, confetti, draw something on it, glitter, use stencils, add images, etc. It’s up to you what you want to create. Also, don’t forget about Pinterest, they have millions of ideas for you!
3. Reusable Bags
My grandma is a genius and made many of these fabric bags with drawstrings for my sister and I. Even though I haven’t used them for presents yet, I’ll deftly start this year and create my own. You can follow this tutorial to make your own eco-friendly Christmas gift bag.
