You won’t find rolls of pretty wrapping paper in this house.
Wrapping paper and gift wrap for me include a pile of the Trib’s comics section.
And a bag full of gift bags and tissue paper that was previously given to me.
If I am handing you a present in a gift bag, there is a 100% chance that it was given to me by someone else.
It is just silly to pay for something that is going to get ripped up and thrown out! Thus why I ranted about it last Christmas too.
I get it. That cohesive look of presents wrapped in a glossy wrapping is Pinterest worthy.
But what I do not get is why anyone would throw out a perfectly good gift bag. They can be used infinitely until they rip!
I keep every single one I receive. And every one will be used again. And hopefully again (I am looking at you people I am giving gifts to! Do your duty!).
