Skip the ribbons and bows. Make presents playful with these three super-fun ideas: Sweet Surprise Top gifts with cupcakes made from mini liners and pom-poms. Easy Street Create a road using black and white tape, then stick a few Matchbox cars in the lanes with removable adhesive putty. Darling Decorations Cover a gift box in colorful party supplies like streamers and confetti.
Just use your brown paper shopping bags to save money on wrapping paper. Add flashy or holiday ribbon to make it feel special. You can also re-purpose cereal boxes, etc. in place of buying new shirt boxes to wrap :)
