Birthday parties are a big deal in my family. And I'm not just talking about my kids and husband. Regardless of your age, in my family, a birthday party is held for you. There's a lot of us. That means a lot of wrapping paper and boxes. Usually the paper and boxes end up in the trash, while the gift bags get recycled and reused until they fall apart.
I recently learned of a company, Gratitude Gift Bags, that eliminates the need for one-use wrapping paper with their fabric reusable gift bags. The bags come in different colors, fabric designs, and sizes. A drawstring is attached to each bag to close the present so there's no need for scissors or tape. Best of all, these bags are reusable and don't fall apart like paper gift bags do.
I received a small gift bag in the Jungle Safari Theme. It is made of cotton and has a turquoise satin drawstraing. It is stiched and constructed in a well-made fashion. My son will be getting a pair of sunglasses for his birthday from me and I'm going to use this bag to put his gift in. Afterwards, I will keep the bag for future birthday party use. I like the idea of using reusable gift bags for parties and events. It's a small step in creating less landfill and the bags can be reused again and again.
