How to Go Natural With Your Holiday Gift Wrap

How to Go Natural With Your Holiday Gift Wrap

Natural Gift Wrap

This holiday season at Follain, we’re focused on getting real and giving real. And that doesn’t just mean giving products made with real, nourishing ingredients; it also means being conscious of how you’re wrapping gifts. The holidays result in a lot of wasted packaging and wrapping paper (some of which isn’t recyclable), but there are other options for creating beautiful, sustainable bundles. Here are a few of our favorites.

Fabric

Swap paper for light fabrics that your recipient can reuse and repurpose. Textiles add a beautiful handcrafted touch to your gift and provide an extra layer of protection for glass presents, like homemade jam or your favorite skincare product. An easy option is to buy simple scarves and use them as wrapping: a gift within a gift!

Botanicals

Botanical accents are a great alternative for traditional ribbons and bows, and there are limitless options when it comes to adding these to your gift wrapping. You can collect sprigs from your garden (we love eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender) or cut a few from the back of your Christmas tree. You can also opt for small berry branches or dried fruit. Bundle these botanicals up and tie them to a bag or add them to a gift box with twine.

Brown Butcher Paper or Paper Bags

No need to buy glossy, printed wrapping paper this year. You can use any brown butcher paper or paper grocery bags you have on hand to wrap your gifts. This adds a pretty rustic look (especially with botanical accents!) and is easy to recycle after unwrapping.

Go Without the Wrap! 

Opt for a reusable bag or pouch to package your gifts. With this, you’re helping reduce waste, and your loved one gets a “two in one” gift. Some of our holiday gift sets come in our signature reusable pouches.
