25 Days of GiveawaysYesterday I hosted a Christmas luncheon at my house for our senior leadership of Hearts at Home.  We chatted about all things holiday and one idea was shared that has really stuck with me.  This was an idea about gift wrapping in a simple, “green” way.

One of the leaders has a friend who has created all kinds of different sizes of “pillowcase style” bags from scrap fabric.  Each bag has a ribbon attached near the open end to tie the bag closed.  This is how she wraps all of the family’s Christmas presents.  It’s reusable, simple, economical and completely green! I think it’s a wonderful idea!   

Another mom who commented to me offline mentioned that several years ago she had each of her kids decorate a large box.  This box is how their Santa gifts are delivered…unwrapped…but placed in the appropriate box.  Another great creative idea!

What gift wrapping traditions does your family?  Got anything creative to share?  Who does the wrapping in your house? (Mark is the primary gift wrapper at our house!)

The winner of the Day 15 drawing will receive a copy of the Hearts at Home book The Complete Guide to Getting and Staying Organized by Karen Ehman. In her simple step by step process, moms can recognize their own personal style of managing their households successfully.

You can post your comment (include your email in your comment!) or Facebook, Twitter, or blog about it until Sunday, 12/16/09 at midnight.  (If you Facebook, Twitter or blog about this topic shoot me an email at jillsavagegiveaway (at) yahoo (dot) com to be entered extra times in the drawing!)

I can’t wait to hear about your wrapping traditions!
