Move Over, Wrapping Paper

Every year tons of cardboard gift boxes and wrapping paper get thrown in the trash on Christmas. (I’m not even going to look up the exact number, because I know it’ll be depressing.) Instead of contributing to all that waste this year, consider using different types of organizing bins, boxes, and baskets to hide presents in that the recipient can use later.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Stackable acrylic and bamboo boxes are great for holding jewelry, cosmetics, gift cards, and other small trinkets. (Here’s a cute fabric version, too.)

Photo storage cases are great for things other than photos, like craft supplies and small toys.

With all the different designs and sizes of fabric bins available, you can gift pretty much anything in style these days. (Personally, I like these best for bulkier items, like sweaters, boots, and purses. (The Bigso boxes from the Container Store would be another great option.)

Use magazine holders for books, comics, and magazines.

And, of course, there are always baskets for everything you could possibly imagine. (Just look at this adorable cat shaped basket!)
