Did you know that you can reuse gift bags from birthday, Christmas, baby showers and any other occasion. I replaced my wrapping paper with gift bags years ago. Check out my 8 Reasons to Use Gift Bags post. They’re easy to use, colorful, and come in a variety of sizes. I purchase mine from the Dollar Store, so we can throw in expensive too.
I have saved tons of gift bags for reuse. Here’s 5 ways that you can reuse your gift bags too:
1. Reuse the bag for another gift giving occasion.
2. Donate to churches or other organizations that give gifts for Christmas or other occasions.
3. Use as a decorative piece for canning jars. The jars can be filled with Christmas candy, party mix etc. Just cut out a piece of the bag in the shape of the center of the top and glue down. Adds a nice decorative touch to the jar.
4. Use as gift tags.
5. Use to decorate scrapbook pages.
Try a few of our tips or come up with your own uses. Ask family and friends to start saving gift bags for you. Having a few gift bags around for emergency gifting or when you’ve running short on time can be a life saver too.
