Making creative gift wrap is fun, especially if you wrap presents to keep pinchers from guessing what is inside.
One person I know used a different wrapping paper for each member of her family, but that member’s gifts were all wrapped in the same paper. She put no names on them so no one was sure what belonged to who.
Another gal swapped names on the packages so that all packages with one member’s name actually went to another family member.
One of my neighbors used to keep my family gifts at her house, while I kept her family gifts at my house.
Usually as the holiday season approaches, I start saving the boxes from oatmeal, crackers, cookies, cereals, egg cartons, shoe boxes and wrapping paper tubes to use for gift wrapping.
After Christmas all these recycled boxes can be put in the recycling, and I don’t feel like I’ve wasted a lot of packaging.
There are many ways to wrap presents besides putting them in a box and taping paper around them.
You can use gift bags, unusual gift boxes, tin cans, paint cans, or almost anything that you can put something else inside of.
