Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping

Ditch the traditional wrapping paper this year - we've got something better (and more sustainable). 😍 Most wrapping paper isn't actually recyclable and millions of pounds end up in landfills. 👎 So as cute as some wrapping paper can be, you can use these alternatives that are creative and in our opinion - even cuter!

Furoshiki Wrapping

This style of wrapping comes from the Japanese culture and it's so unique! Head to a fabric store and score some fabric scraps to wrap your gifts. All you do is wrap the fabric around and tie a knot! 🤗

Watercolor Paper

Since most wrapping paper isn't recyclable, the next best thing is finding paper that you can recycle! Buy a roll of white paper and get creative with some watercolors to make it festive! 🎨 You can even go the extra mile and snag some recycled paper to use. ♻️

Get Unconventional 

Grab whatever you have in your craft closet like twine or yarn to add a bow for a finishing touch! 🧶 Then get some fresh air outside and forage some greenery or pine cones to tie them in!🌿

Now that you know how you're wrapping your gifts, it's time to find what gifts you'll be wrapping!

Ummm… I think this is supposed to be for um… more realistic stuff. We are not fooled by you Ressie. I know that wolverines are nt real because the other day I was reading a book to my chics/kiddos/hot babes and it was about this which. anyhow after i was done they were saying that they think there teacher What’s a witch because the other day she had a surprise pop quiz. She also give some homework to do every night which honestly is so dang hard I tried helping my 7 year old son with math other day and girl! It was so hard!!!!!!!! So I was like okay kiddos we need to do something about this witch. So the next day I gave all my kids a huge thing of salt to kill the evil witch/ teacher. I told them to shake it all over her when she was eating her lunch so she could vaporize. The next day I got a call from the principal and he called me in and we honestley had a heart-to-heart talk actually about witches and Wolverines and he told me that I was Psycho and those things aren’t real. She showed me this movie all about science and that all those crappy things aren’t real and I believe them 100%. I actully stareted balling for like 7 hours because I am so so sad unicorns are not real!!!!! Anyhow He’s my superhero now we text everyday cuz he taught me that these things aren’t real and that’s why we know Riccee these things are real. Actually can send you the phone number of the teacher so he can text you the video and maybe you will believe it too.

So we used to be a leading cause of tree tree death because we used paper to wrap our gifts (me and my Hubbie jam) but then wolverines attacked our apartment so we decided that instead of trees dying we could kill the wolverines and wrap our presents with their skins (my hubbie jam is rlly good at skinning dead animals) and there might be a little blood on that sweatshirt but blood is red which is in the rainbow and the rainbow represents joy like Christmas so it’s actually perfect.

My and my hubby jam used to use paper for our gifts. But then wolverines started to attack our apartment and now jam skins them and wraps our gifts with those so trees don’t die and the wolverines do. A little blood might get on that cute sweater but that’s ok because Christmas. And blood is a color of the rainbow and Christmas and rainbows are both about joy.
