As I am not a gift wrapper, I usually buy my Christmas gift bags from the Dollar Store, and of course they are $1.00 each.
This year our local grocery store started selling re-usable grocery bags with seasonal motifs on them. They are 99 cents. So I decided that I would purchase the re-usable bags for my gift giving this year.
Environmentally conscious, these bags, regardless of motifs, are of year round use, still provide me (a horrendous gift wrapper) with my precious gift bags, and are ideal for those gift recipients to take home their gifts in.
These "Seasonal" re-usable grocery bags are available at IGA, Sobeys, Foodland, Walmart, Zellers and, I suspect, a multitude of other large stores.

I think this is a good idea. Thanks. (12/22/2009)
Excellent and environmentally friendly! My sister works at a Giant Eagle in Akron, so last time she was able to visit (for my younger daughter's wedding last August,) she brought three reusable bags from her store as a gift for hubby and me.
He occasionally forgets the reusable bags, of course, so we simply recycle the plastic and paper bags as trash bags, etc, as usual. (12/25/2009)
