Chico Bag Gift Wrapping

December 04, 2014

You need to wrap gifts. But you don't want to waste paper. And you want the gift to look pretty. Oh, and you also want it to be useful and sustainable? Well, here's a great idea that we came across recently.

Enter Chico bags! Check out the photo below. Pretty ingenious, am I right? You can use these wonderful reusable shopping bags to cover up your gift, tie the handles in a bow, and viola — instant wrapping! And when your gift's unwrapped, the recipient has something to carry their treasures in, and they can save it for future carrying!

Plus, since Chico bags come in a variety of sizes, colors, and patterns, you can definitely still make your gift personalized!
