Organic Cotton Gift Wraps And Gift Bags That Keep Giving

Is it wrapping paper or a super-cute scarf? What about both?

This year add more meaning to your holidays with cheerful messages that are part of your gift and can be reused long after the festivities are over. The adorable Give Bags and Give Wraps by Chewing the Cud do just that with their printed messages like “give cheer”, ”give joy”, or “give love”. What’s so cool about these pretty Give Bags and Give Wraps is that they keep giving after the gift was received.

All reusable Give Wraps are made of 100% organic cotton and printed with vegetable-based inks. The way it works is that you lay your present on top of the 28” x 28” fabric wrap with each side facing a corner of the wrap. Then you take two opposing corners from the fabric and tie your first knot. Next you take the remaining two corners and create the second knot. Voila – you’re done. No toxic tape is needed – just simple man (or woman) power. Best of all, the receiver can reuse the well-designed fabric as a kitchen towel, headscarf, placemat, or napkin. The possibilities are endless with so many contemporary design options. Another favorite of mine is the design of “give luck in health, in life, in love” with an adorable elephant and pig design in fuschia. It’s a thoughtful giftwrap for a New Year’s Eve party in case you want to bring a bottle of wine or champagne.

If you’re feeling less crafty this season and are simply looking for a simple, no-fuzz wrapping solution San Francisco-based Chewing the Cud has another idea for you: reusable drawstring Give Bags upcycled from the Give Wraps. Not only do they make eco-friendly and innovative gift bags but they can also be reused as a travel companion to hold shoes or underwear. What I love about both products is that they are not only made of eco-friendly materials but also have multiple purposes thanks to their beautiful designs. I wish you a cheerful and healthy holiday season!
