I keep a couple rolls of wrapping paper on hand, but for the most part, I wrap my gifts in things that most people would throw away. It saves me some cash, and it cuts down on our trash. Here’s a peek at some of my favorite ways to wrap a gift:

Strawberry baskets and berry boxes are perfect for wrapping small gifts.

Take out containers work well, too.

And empty oatmeal and peanut containers look extra snazzy when dressed up with just a bit of wrapping paper.

I save ribbons, bows and tissue paper from the gifts that we receive throughout the year, so I always have plenty of embellishments on hand to finish a gift off right.

Do you like to turn your garbage into gift wrap, too? Please share some of your favorite upcycling ideas.
