How to Wrap Presents Affordably

It can be overwhelming how much this final step can cost. But there are a few ways you can make it more affordable. Below are a few tips for how tow rap presents affordably.

Use Brown Postage Paper

You can buy this paper in large rolls for very little money. Then, you can dress it up with doodles, stamps, string, and more. It is a great canvas for a little holiday art.

Hit the Dollar Store

Here, you can find everything you need for—you guessed it—a dollar. Go for the biggest rolls of gift wrap and packages with lots of bows to ensure you are getting the most for your money.

Opt for Bags

If you are giving more than one item to each person, bags may be cheaper than paper. This is especially true if you purchase large bags from the dollar store. Yes, it might be more fun to open multiple packages, but the recipient will be pleased just the same.

Use a Potato Chip Bag

Okay, so this one requires some cleaning, but the shiny silver interior of chip bags can look quite festive. Tie it shut with blue and silver or gold and silver ribbon, and it will look quite fancy.

Recycle Magazines and Newspaper

This makes a present feel like a pop-art masterpiece. While we think it is a great option for anyone, kids and teens will really get a kick out of it.

Skip the Accessories

Finally, to keep the price low, don’t go crazy accessorizing. Bows and ribbons aren’t needed—and they are often the most expensive part. Keep it simple and know that no one will be disappointed to receive a present, no matter how it is wrapped.
