  1. I collect baskets and white or brown paper bags with handles throughout the year and then use them as gift bags. Sometimes baskets are available in charity shops. Also I collect the ribbon and cellophane from bunches of flowers throughout the year and they can be used again

  2. i am obviously a cheapskate. I do hampers every year for my olds (after all they have houses full of stuff and don’t want anything non-consumable) but I just re-use one I have been given or a cardboard box if I don’t have one the right size. I don’t think I’ve ever bought one!
