When my girls were little, some 20 years ago, I bought a few yards of Christmas fabric (on sale, of course) and made large, drawstring bags for each of them and for my husband.

Each year, I put their gifts in the homemade gift bags — no time, no mess and no recycling needed! Now that my daughters have husbands, I’ve made more bags for the fellas.
