Besides birthdays and Christmas, there are lots of occasions for gift giving. (Easter, Valentines, St. Patty's, Anniversary, Baby Shower, Wedding, Halloween, 4th July, New Years, Sweetest day, Grandparents day, Thanksgiving, etc.). Instead of investing in paper gift bags, that are usually used one time, I purchase re-usable totes from various stores! These are generally $1.00 and can be re-used over and over and is a gift in itself to the recipient as well as Mother Earth!
Almost all major chain stores offer the Totes, therefore you can have various colors of totes! I use one of these totes in my car to organize necessities.

For baby showers, I have used receiving blankets or flat crib sheets and decorative ribbon to wrap other small baby items in. For other gifts, I have photo boxes or pretty baskets to hold gifts. (03/07/2010)
