Christmas present wrapping

Just wondered how people wrap their presents in a sustainable way?
I was thinking of getting some recycled brown paper and trying to pretty it up with ribbons or something. Not sure if it's particularly green though. Ideally i would reuse all the baby gift bags I received recently but don't think that would go down well!

I do reuse gift bags...I save them up and snip off the tags and attach new ones which I make out of all kinds of other things.

You could use recycled papers with added edible things such as candy canes attached flat with twine. Or even dried fruits such as orange slices.

We reuse gift bags all the time!

Reuse wrapping paper if it's to a member of immediate family who won't mind smile

I sewed up Christmas fabric into bags a few years ago and reuse them every year.

I do actually just save last years wrapping paper. I think the crushed look is quite trendy these days.

Bit late for this year but I used the brown paper that comes in amazon parcels to pad out the boxes- it was perfect as I bought the majority of presents from Amazon, straightened out the crinkled up paper and tied it with a pretty ribbon (saved from previous years) and a nice gift tag. I think it looked just as good as if I'd used a roll of brown paper.
