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