Newspaper wrapping and monogram gift tags! you know what - I have wrapped gifts in newspaper before but when they are all together like this they look terrific! I think this will be my plan for this year!
Pretty gift wrapping - I like this idea. You could use brown paper bags (turned inside out) or brown craft paper.
DIY soap packaging - so wrapping a bar of ivory and sending it to my mom. She's infamous for giving soap as a gift. Or wrap small boxes!
