Emergency Wrap for Small GiftsI recently had to wrap a DVD for a kid's birthday party, and had no wrapping paper, ribbon, or a bow; so I used a piece of colorful printer paper and some scrap hemp string. It worked out beautifully!

Use Reusable Grocery Bag as a Gift BagThis past Christmas, I decided to use re-usuable shopping bags to give my gifts in. I purchased several at a department store for 50 cents each, put some Christmas decorations on, and had crepe paper hanging over the sides.

Gift Wrap IdeasBecause of our consumer society, wrapping paper can be a huge expense. We may want to consider "downgrading" the packaging and wrapping of the things we purchase in the coming year. I recently heard of a great idea: instead of wasting what amounts to tons (collectively) of wrap and ribbon, why not use seasonal dish clothes or towels to wrap some items? You could use place mats that have been rolled up and tied as a beautiful gift alone or with some kind of neat kitchen gizmo tucked inside. Use YOUR imagination!
