4. Decorative Tins
You can find pretty metal tins in all shapes and sizes, and they’re great for gifting small presents like jewelry and even larger items like clothing. Just tie the tin up with a pretty bow, and you’re ready to put it under the tree!
After the holiday is over, tins are great for storing and organizing. My mother-in-law gave me a gift in a 6″ tall square yellow tin over 5 years ago. I have no idea what present was inside of it, but I’ve been using the tin itself as an office organizer for my pens and pencils ever since, and I think of her every time I glance over at it. That’s the thing I love most about alternative giftwrap – it has heart, and it’s often memorable.
