    All such great ideas. I especially love the scarf idea – so cute! Thank you. I get bummed out each year by the amount of waste as well.

    These are such thoughtful ideas! :) In college I often wrapped gifts with newspaper. I found the entertainment pages with xmas movies and nucracker ballet images and wrapped those that side out. Used a snowflake stamp and red ink to make it a bit more chipper. :) I love the scarf idea but have not tried it yet! These are such great ideas. We definitely re-use paper and bags all the time, and re-purpose old cards, etc. I love how mindful you are here. It’s an area that I would love to improve upon personally! XO – Alexandra

    All wonderful ideas, Jess! I’m also very conscious and try to make more of an effort to reduce waste when it comes to gift wrapping (my gosh all the wrapping and the labels, it’s insane and don’t even get me start on the cards)… I think for years now I’ve been trying to reuse old boxes lying around the house, and strings I’ve collected from either shopping or around. It’s been great because 1) saves me some pennies 2) less waste! I love the idea of the silk scarf :) would love it if someone gave *me* a present in silk scarf hehe.

    I think potentially you could also use things like stickers instead of sellotape? (I tried)

    Also LOL at your comment about decorating presents with articles from Brexit. I actually would love that hahahaha. Cause I’m lame.

    I like your idea of scarves and shoe boxes. I didn’t realize that a lot of wrapping paper couldn’t be recycled!

    Merry Christmas!
