Just say no to fancy gift wrap.

Angela Kim Dec 6, 2010

Visit your local large format offset printer for large (28 x 40 or even bigger) sheets of excess paper. Or, carefully disassemble paper bags from places such as Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, REI, etc. You can wrap your gifts with the printed side in, and personalize the plain side. Or have fun with the outside; reuse a Victoria’s Secret bag to disguise a gift for your teenage son!
