I'd highly recommend making a set. Convenient, time saving, eco friendly. An all around win. Because I'm so passionate about waste free wrapping paper, I am even willing to hire myself out for custom orders of reusable gift bags from now until garden season. Or if you are local, I am happy to teach you how. Such a small change, but if many jumped aboard, what a great way to reduce our use of disposable materials.
Homemade: Reusable Gift Bags
I've been saying for a number of years that I wanted to make a good number of reusable gift bags in a coordinated material. I have used reusable gift bags under the Christmas tree for the last decade, but the store bought ones I have lack in quality. I've made a couple here and there, but this year I actually dove in and made a pile. I made them in three sizes and in a fabric that will be appropriate year round, not just for Christmas. They already have come in handy for our half birthday traditions and my husband's birthday scavenger hunt.
