5 Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

  • 3 of 6

Mason Jar

2. Mason Jars
Glass Mason jars are endlessly handy! Your giftee can use her empty mason jar to store knickknacks or bulk food. You can use it as a water glass or a vase. It’s a gift wrap option that’s definitely not heading to the landfill.

There are lots of gifts that you can make right inside of a Mason jar, or you can use it to wrap store-bought gifts. Small clothing or accessories like scarves or t-shirts will fit into pint- or quart-sized Mason jars. You can also use smaller half-pint Mason jars to gift more delicate things like jewelry and accessories. If you want to keep the present inside a mystery, just line the jar with a pretty piece of fabric.

Furoshiki is a lovely idea, but by the time I bought a yard of fabric for every gift, I would be broke!
