Ah, the joy of giving. As Christmastime draws near, people become more and more excited to buy uniquely thought-out gifts for their friends, family or special someone. To add to the building-up excitement, joy comes when seeing beautifully adorned gifts piled underneath the Christmas tree.

Not wanting to be outdone, one puts their heart and soul into wrapping their gifts, embellishing them with their own personal touch.

They, however, forget an important thing: what happens to all of the discarded wrapping paper after? Inevitably, they make their way to the kerb, are placed in the rubbish and await collection.

Obviously, no one would ever think of that during the happiest time of the year. However, a lot of people nowadays have become more environmentally conscious than ever. And so, they started to start a ‘green’ lifestyle.

In all sorts of waste, people came up with greener solutions: product production, use and disposal. Of course, this meant that people have adapted and learned to gift wrap more sustainably.

How does one gift wrap sustainably? Some might know, whilst some may not. Worry not, if you have no idea how to sustainably pack your gifts, we’ve got you! Below, we give you some useful tips and tricks to gift wrap sustainably.

Now, on to discussing how you can gift wrap sustainably!


Here’s how you can gift wrap more sustainably

This may come as a surprise to you. Did you know that wrapping paper is not recyclable? Due to it having a glittery, metallic look, this shiny-looking paper cannot be put in the yellow bin and recycled.

To avoid stash after stash of wrapping paper waste, we give you some of the best ideas below on how to gift wrap sustainably. Hopefully, after this blog, we want to see you doing your part in taking care of the environment, along with unlocking your creative and artistic side!


Find reusable alternative gift wraps

Obviously, this would be the first thing that comes to mind: finding recyclable materials to gift wrap sustainably. But did you know that reusable materials are just as good, if not better?

Cardboard boxes, for example, are sturdy and lasting enough to be reused again. We suggest that you gift wrap it as simply as possible so that it can be reused many times in the future. Encourage the ones you give gifts to reuse the gift wrap to help others gift wrap sustainably, too.


Using compostable items such as newspapers

If you are like me and like reading the news whilst sipping a cup of hot coffee, then you might have many old newspapers in your house that you have no use for anymore. Well, you can upcycle them to gift wrap sustainably!

Old newspapers can transform into beautiful gift wrap with a little effort and creativity. Partner your newspapers with other compostable materials such as kitchen strings and beautiful flowers as decorations to achieve your desired beautiful gift wrap.


Have any unused cloth or fabric? They can be used to grift wrap sustainably, too!

Do you have some old clothing or fabrics lying around the house that you have no use for anymore? Well, it’s time you declutter your house and use them as a gift wrap!

Yes, you can also use old fabrics and clothing to gift wrap sustainably.

How do you do this? It is quite easy! Let us use bento box wrapping as a good example. You can use that method to wrap your gift properly. In a similar manner, you can use Furoshiki fabric wraps, which you can view here. You can also watch the video below to learn how to do a Furoshiki wrap.

But if you prefer, you can go the more familiar route in Australia and get yourself a few decorations such as laces and satin.
