Bonus Tip: Go Beyond Tags for an Eco-Friendly Christmas

Speaking of eco-friendly, greening up your festive gifts is another beautiful way. Instead of the usual plastic or paper bags, consider using reusable bags. Our family loves to use reusable bags as an eco-friendly alternative to wrapping paper, plus we have Santa sacks from Pottery Barn that are another great idea. They’re sturdy, stylish, and, most importantly, kind to our planet. Plus, they can be used year after year, making them a sustainable and cherished tradition.
