Lauren starts off by firing gift wrap per se in favor of penniless materials like butcher paper & baker's twine so one can use to their own liking.
Lauren next says to mix up materials with red & white twine while adding some velvet ribbon to one's package, some fabrics, lace, or yarns help too.
Economic gift wrapping doesn't have to be limited to paper & twine, it can stretch as far as left over decorations for a much prettier presentation of that I-Pad you may get.
Other options include going as far as one's backyard in hopes of finding pinecones and/ or twigs which can be hot glued on the edge of butcher paper near the makeshift bows.
