That’s a Wrap!


When it comes to sustainable gifting, we’ve got Christmas all wrapped up with these chic and earth-friendly alternatives to traditional gift wrap. Happy holidays!

 

That’s a Wrap!

 

  1. Jarry eyed Mason jars are not only perfect for edible gifts, but they’re also a great option for soaps, art supplies, or other small gifts. Add a bit of fabric or recycled tissue paper and let the gift do the talking.

  2. Artistic Accessorising If you’ve been wondering what to do with all the artwork that comes home from preschool all year long, it can have a second life as gift wrap.

  3. Fabulous Furoshiki Furoshiki is the traditional Japanese art of wrapping a gift in a beautiful fabric, scarf, or bandana which can be used again and again. The creative twisting here brings sophistication to fabric gift wrap.

  4. Tag team Why not try repurposing Christmas cards from previous years to use as a gift tag for the next gift you give. Punch a hole and tie a ribbon to dress up any present. Or give plantable gift tags a go. Made from paper embedded with seeds, the gift recipient can plant the tag and watch it grow.

  5. Leaf it Adding a touch of nature makes green gifting a more literal affair. Bamboo or banana leaves can be used to cover a small gift, or why not try a holly leaf, birch bark, or a bird feather to add a pretty natural embellishment.

  6. Plain Jane Plain packaging is much more likely to be repurposed by its recipient than its festive siblings. So keep it plain, Jane.
