Decorate Presents With Useful Items

When I wrap presents, I don't use bows. For boys, I use a matchbox car, small ball, etc.; for girls I use hair accessories, pencils, etc. For adults, I use a tea light candle, a hair accessory, screw driver, or anything I think will be useful or appreciated by the recipient.


Use your imagination. It may cost me a few cents more, but the money is well spent as there is no wasted money on bows that get thrown away and the person is getting 2 presents in one.

Great idea! Maybe (too) if the gift is small it could fit into a coffee mug (for instance) as a "gift carton".
