But for now, I'll share a gift wrap idea that my friend Margaret gave me:
Reuse your child's artwork!
I love this idea for so many reasons:
No guilt about throwing away the multitude of paintings and drawings that we don't have room to keep.*
By not purchasing wrapping paper, I'll save money.
It's an opportunity to reduce and reuse.
It adds a personal touch to a gift.
And, it's a special way to showcase your little artist's work. He or she will be thanked for the present and complimented on its one-of-a-kind wrapping!
*Of course I'll keep the really special ones. :) I've also been religiously photographing the art creations J brings home from preschool. At the end of the school year, I'll create a Shutterfly book of them as a keepsake.
