  • Newspaper (the Sunday comic section is always colorful)
  • Brown paper grocery bags

To add a touch of flair:

  • Tie a bow with ribbon left over from a craft project
  • Create a bow using magazine pages. Learn how >
  • Add a sprig of evergreen or dried flower
  • If using paper bags, write a personalized message and/or use crayons to create a pattern or draw a picture
