    Someone started a list of gift ideas. How about a list for ideas for wrapping gifts?

    Wrap in fat quarters, or if a quilt wrap in a pillowcase to match. My brother in law used to use comics to wrap all his christmas gifts with.

    I have made pillowcases in Christmas fabrics to "wrap" the grandkids' gifts in.

    Make a tote or purse for the wrapping of a gift, or gift card. I have seen gift card envelopes made of fabric.

    All of our gifts this year will be "wrapped" in reusable grocery bags. This will put an average of 3 bags into each kitchen. We are making a special effort to find nice ones that are not marked for a particular store so that the recipients can shop wherever they like.

    I make totes or do furoshiki. A lot of times I get the fabric back on the furoshiki ;-)

    I wrap many gift in reusable bags from TJ Max and Homegoods. They sell them for only $1 and are then reusable. Have not noticed if they will have a christmas ones but used them for about 8 weddings this summer.

    Find lovely, sturdy canvas and put some sort of applique over the store brand. These will last for years. I have one from a local store and for a 1970s fan, I put a peace sign over the store's name. She keeps it in her restored Partridge Family style van.
