I bought builder paper at Lowes. It is like craft paper but comes on a huge roll. I think it is 100 yards for $8. Pretty cheap wrapping paper that I can use year-around. I dressed up the plain paper with some fun bows & ribbons.
DIY: Wrapping With Craft Paper - Rip open a grocery store brown paper bag and wrap a gift so the unprinted side shows on the outside of the box. | Cover the package in office supply store stickers. | Tie it all up with wool yarn in festive colors.
