Ever need a gift bag in a weird size or need one right now but don’t have time to go to the store? Here are some awesome DIY gift bag ideas you can make yourself at home!
I saw a meme recently that said you must be a mom if you have a stash of saved and recycled gift bags somewhere in your home. I laughed so hard because, yes, I totally do. And I totally reuse them. I just can’t throw a perfectly good gift bag away! Please tell me I’m not the only one!
Gift bags are the best because they are SO much faster and easier than wrapping paper. And you can fit a bunch of things in a gift bag. Or you can easily put oddly shaped things inside with no problem. I just keep a big stash of white tissue paper (dollar store all the way, for that!) to stuff inside and then it doesn’t matter what color or theme the DIY gift bag is, I’m ready!
The problem, of course, that happens even if you have a gift bag stash, comes when you have a gift that’s a weird size or you have an occasion but not a matching gift bag. Like if you have a baby shower gift and only Christmas gift bags.
So today we’re going to talk about DIY gift bag ideas that you can make at home. Some of them are amazing because they’re really really cute. Some of them are super ingenious. Some of them are reusable and environmentally friendly. If you like to gift wrap, this one’s for you!
(And hey, if gift wrapping doesn’t bring you joy, that’s totally fine, it’s one of those love or leave it things for a lot of people. Don’t feel bad if it’s not enjoyable for you! I always say, that it’s ok to be yourself around here!)
