Wrapping presents for the holidays presents a problem I know, there is such a waste of paper involved and even if you spring for the recycled paper you're still throwing it away.
*For small items use beautiful glossy magazine pages, choose according to the receivers personality, for the rocker you can pull Rolling Stone pages and for your family fashionista you can score some vogue pages.
*Consider not wrapping those bigger gifts, stash them in the closet till you are ready to give them out, hide them under a sheet, trust me the look on their face when they get whatever is hidden under there is worth it!
*Use nature when you can for added decor, twigs, leaves, acorns and pine cones make beautiful gift toppers
When all else fails, ditch the bows, sooo unnecessary and way to obvious.
