My Family Will Make Fun of Me on Christmas Morning

I know, sad isn’t it! But, I bring it upon myself. I am wrapping my Christmas gifts in newspaper!

My eco-friendly wrapping will certainly be appreciated, but my tree-huggin’ ways won’t be overlooked and I fully expect some giggles. Though by now, my family should expect this from me.

Wrapping in newspaper makes complete sense. To me, it seems a little preposterous that we buy paper that has no use other than to look pretty, and then be ripped apart and thrown in the garbage.

This Christmas I am boycotting wrapping paper! Instead, take a look at my newspaper-wrapped gifts with recycled ribbon and homemade tags. I think they look very nice, and very green! And this wrapping paper has been read. So before we throw it away anyway (or recycle it), I’llΒ  give it one more use.

    • That’s what I do, Teacher! I love the way it looks! I still have to wrap one of my husband’s gifts, and I see a three day old newspaper on the table … thanks for the idea!

      • Growing up, my family often wrapped presents (for any occasion) in brown paper bags, which my siblings and I would decorate appropriate with our crayons and markers. I loved the personal touch of it. And reusing newspaper for wrapping is a great idea–I think I’d be saving up the Sunday comics sections all year, just for that purpose!

      • I’ve used the bags too – I think they look really good because the ribbon or bows will stand out on the neutral background!

Too bad we don’t subscribe to periodicals… Will give a second thought to the ad papers that spam our mailbox… πŸ˜‰

  15. NICE ! I like it. I’ve done it before–it’s a good idea, especially looks cool if you use the comic section. Enjoy–wrapping paper is over-rated. I’ve also used brown paper bags from the grocery store or magazine pages…

    That’s a great idea. I’ve never tried using newspapers as wrapping paper for gifts. Maybe I’ll follow your example and go green this Christmas.
    I agree with you on the fact that we buy gift wrapping paper just so that it looks pretty. Why do we do that? I may not have used newspaper for wrapping gifts, but a habit I’ve had since childhood is to fold that crinkly, shiny gift wrapping paper and put it away somewhere, not to tear it apart. I carefully peel all the tapes off. Then, when I have to wrap a gift, I use that wrapping paper instead of a new one.
    I once even put the gift in a leftover cardboard box. You know, the kind you get blank white sheets to print on? I didn’t want it to look drab, so I brought out my paint set and painted it blue and added a few designs on it with glitter. My sister actually tried to peel the paint off because she thought it was gift wrapping paper.

    My mother used to take it one step further when I was a child by wrapping some of my presents in about 10 layers of newspaper. Imagine the cackling that ensued when I unwrapped the first layer to discover another underneath.

    Therefore, thanks to your reminder, I shall be reinvigorating this tradition. I can’t wait for Christmas morning now!

    I’ve seen that done with stamps (either rubber or potato stamps) to make the paper more decorative. I guess if it were me I’d turn it into a craft project. But the uniformity of the wrapping makes a statement, and it looks nice in a big group like that. Next year I’d cut out some potato stamps and stamp the newspaper for a more festive effect. I hardly ever buy newspapers any more, myself, so would have to go out and buy newspaper to use it for wrapping, lol. Not so ecologically friendly if you have to do that, right?

    • You can go on Craigslist and see if anyone has some newspaper they were going to throw out. I know it’s probably too much work to do that but it’s a good way to save free newspaper πŸ™‚

      My grandmother used to recycle bows. We’d send gifts, then the next year she’d send gifts reusing some of the bows we’d used. There were a few in particular that got used over many years and they became sort of a joke, like, “wonder if that old, ratty bow will make its way back this year?”. Seems like a good idea now but back then it seemed silly.

      Having said that, bows are TOTALLY recycleable, as is ribbon, especially the wider ribbon. Just save it and use again.

    When I was a kid I would carefully unwrap my presents so I could save the wrapping paper and then re-use it when wrapping my own gifts (my family would tease me a bit, but eventually my grandmother started saving used wrapping paper for me). Now, when wrapping small items, I use magazine pages, which I think is so much more fun anyway. I love looking for interesting or unexpected images (Rolling Stone and Real Simple are my favorites).

    I myself reuse wrapping paper – I open received gifts very carefully, store the wrapping paper in a separate cupboard, often between layers of newspaper, and use them to wrap gifts or decorate notebooks, etc. Would hate to see fragments of those glittery plastic sheets chocking some innocent plant or animal to death.

  102. Well done! I usually use paper grocery bags, wrapped in twine, decorated by a twig or pinecone or sprig of greenery, with a gift tag made out of old christmas cards. I dig the rustic look, but yes, my family just thinks I’m being cheap and a spoilsport I suppose, especially the young kids who love all things shiny. This year will be different. I found a very large roll of wrapping paper in my neighbor’s garbage this spring. Sitting on top, mind you. It’s not Christmas-y, looks more like a wallpaper print, but it’ll do!
    Speaking of living simply and sustainably, my friends Ryan and Mandy finally found a cooperative community to call their own after bicycling around the US for over a year and touring over a hundred intentional communities. They made a film about it and it’s awesome and you can get their DVD through their website by visiting their kickstarter campaign. http://www.withinreachmovie.com

    I happily recycle, wash out cans, etc. and have not used paper napkins for years – but when it comes to Christmas presents, part of the “gift” is the presentation. I curl my own ribbons and make my own bows (from ribbon) but the pretty packages that sit under the tree are part of the whole holiday feel-goodness that warms my toes.

    In my family, the wrapping paper tends to be sometimes even more expensive than the whole gift. That’s because we love the exceedingly beautiful patterns, for example, artistic reproductions. I still think it is OK even when considering from the “green” standpoint as we re-use all of them later as a decoupage material.

  114. My sister has always wrapped birthday presents in the comics section of the Sunday paper! Recently, I’ve been using the plain newspaper type paper that a store wrapped my breakables in. I even have a birthday cupcake stamp that I put on the front or top of the gift once it’s wrapped.

    p.s. My Grammie always opened presents very carefully and saved the wrapping paper. She had a dresser in her hallway with a drawer just for recycled wrapping paper!

    Love it! Best idea ever! By the way, I agree with you on wrapping paper. That’s why I buy gift bags and re-use all the ones I get. I’m convinced there’s a finite number of gift bags in the world and we just re-gift them.

I think its great that your doing that, can see that your a good steward of your money, but seeing as to how I was unable to get anoyone gifts this year I dont have to worry about using paper to wrap the gifts. I think this is great, but with my families life style and how my family wraps gifts it would look like I’m being cheap. Great thought though, when I have my own family I’ll do this when I can start with a clean slate.

My MIL came up with this idea, trying to cut costs on international shipping.

  142. You Rock! As a professional organiser, I’m totally in favour of this type of thing. Other ideas are to wrap in music notation, kids comics and recipe ideas. If you’re clever the pages can be stuck together in a way that can be read after unwrapping. Especially if you don’t use sticky tape to seal the parcel and instead go the old fashioned way of using reusable ribbons and raffia. Fantastic ideas from other readers as well.

    My nephew has been doing this for a few years. Most of us laugh at him every Christmas and Birthday Party. It’s become a tradition of his we expect and look forward to. The laughing is just our way of having fun with him. He takes it in stride because he always make fun of us at special events.(us referring to the men in our family) We all seem to turn into 10 year olds at these events, even though we are much older. I believe he wraps his gifts in newspaper because it can’t be thrown back at you as hard like those wrapped in gift paper. (actually he is concerned with the environment and takes doing his part seriously)

    I don’t think I’ve wrapped close family gifts in real paper for years. Sometimes, it’s just plastic walmart bags. Sometimes, if I’m highly motivated, I will wrap it in newspaper. It’s just so much more fun. I bought a shirt for my dad and I wrapped it in a big fan box to disguise it. Since I used newspaper, I didn’t have to worry that I’m using up all the nice paper on it.

    I do, however, think that my aunt has reused Christmas wrapping paper. (Which is really tacky for anyone who is thinking about it.) One year we got presents which were wrapped in very old looking wrapping paper, and looked a LOT like the paper we sent her last year. Since much of my extended family are perfectionists, I feel I must wrap presents in wrapping paper for them. We’re already too much of the odd ball to do something like this.

  161. I often cut up old grocery shopping traditional brown bags, and have my sons decorate the back side. Then, their grandparents get handmade drawings to keep, and their precious gifts come in a beautiful package. Additionally, that brown paper they use for grocery bags is exceptionally thick and opaque, so it really hides and covers well and doesn’t rip as easily.

    This is a really cool post. Thanks for sharing!

    I actually requested last year to have MY gifts wrapped in newspaper. I think it’s great – why spend $1-$2 a tube of wrapping paper when you have access to so much paper (flyers, daily newspaper etc.).

    The one downfall of wrapping with newspaper is that your generally need to use more tape for large presents.

    That is a great idea, if only my wife would go for it. Newspaper is much more colorful that it used to be and the addition of recycled ribbon and bows adds that much more. I always wrapped birthday gifts and my single Christmas present my cousins and I exchanged in the Sunday funnies.

    I think this is fabulous. I haven’t bought wrapping paper in years and I’ve been re-using gift bags instead and pretty much re-use until they fall apart. I also do gift baskets which are bowls made from melted and warped records. The filler is made from old magazines that have been run through the shredder. I do have some gift wrap that I am using but only to use it up and after that I’m going to start using newspapers.

  236. Not a bad idea. For some reason none of my family are into this type of stuff, they’re more into tradition. They don’t care how many trees it took to make that paper, and what effect it will do to the environment, it’s just the way they’ve always done it and because the paper looks pretty.

    The paper is a waste, I agree, it only lasts about 5 minutes, the kids just rip the paper apart without second thoughts. We have a lot of newspaper that we keep around, maybe next Christmas I’ll do the wrapping.

  239. I’ve seen that done before and I do think it is a wonderful idea. Good for you for taking a stand. I have to admit, I haven’t worried too much about throwing away all the wrapping paper until this year it hit me… on Christmas day, a huge garbage bag packed full of brand spanking new paper that one day before was happily rolled up and not getting ready to go fill up space in a landfill. Let alone all the packaging; cardboard, plastic, more papers. So nice job, every little bit helps! Happy New Year!
