I long ago stopped using paper gift wrap because I hated how wasteful it was. I found another alternative that is equally (if not more) pretty under the Christmas tree, and it makes wrapping gifts incredibly simple and fast! This alternative is furoshiki, the Japanese method of folding a square of fabric to carry objects and wrap up gifts!
But furoshiki is useful for gifts all year round, not just at Christmas! The recipient of the gift will get the additional gift of a lovely new furoshiki to use in his/her future gift giving.
