Reusable Cloth Gift Bags from VZWraps

by Lolli

Birthday and Christmas shopping for my family of seven is a relative breeze compared to having to wrap all of the presents I end up buying for them. Gift wrapping is not one of my greatest talents, and I usually leave the wrapping to the last minute.

Wrapped up in holiday stress

I admit that I often feel like the woman in this picture…

Wrapping presents can take so much time. And don’t get me started on all of the odd-shaped packages for the kids that are nearly impossible to wrap without making the gifts look like they were prepared by a 3 year old (or my husband, which is pretty much the same thing…).

Fabric gift bags

I have a friend who moved away a few years ago who was a genius with the sewing machine. I envied her gifts – beautifully wrapped in fabric that coordinated with the occasion. But considering that I am a worse seamstress than I am gift wrapper, I never made any for myself.

I was thrilled when Isabelle offered to send me some cloth gift bags from her online store, VZWraps. The fabrics are delicious and I am so excited by the prospect of not having to stay up all night wrapping presents for our next family event. Now that I have had a taste of her fabric gift bags, I don’t think I’ll be buying any more wrapping paper for next year’s birthdays.

Enter to win

Wow! I don’t think I can pick just one. I love the jasmine with turquoise ribbon for a coworker gift. The funky jungle is precious for a toddler’s birthday. I love anything damask so… Great idea/product! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!!

The cupcakes print is too cute for words. Great for birthdays and for “Just because” gifts.

I’d LOVE to use these for birthdays! I love having beautiful packages for people to open but HATE the fact that all that gift wrap gets recycled or thrown away! I try to be environmentally friendly in my choices so often buy recycled giftwrap but this would be even better!
