Oh Holy Night - Single Christmas Gift Bags
Kiwiana Christmas- all the classic looks of Christmas with a kiwi twist. We know snowflakes are not really a thing here, so we made our snowflakes from NZ silverferns. One of our fabrics in this gorgeous range has the printed story of Christmas written in Te Reo and English. We have also made a striped fabric to match as well as a very traditional green and red holly print.
The gold ribbon enhances the timeless, and ageless style of these gift bags.
This exclusive fabric was designed by Wanaka artists and digitally printed rather than screen printed as it is less impactful on the environment.
You can also buy this fabric in our Sew Your Own range if you would prefer to make your own bags.
Reusability and the environment
After researching plastic, paper, and fabric’s impact on the environment it was obvious that the best impact you can make is to reuse products for a long, long time. See our blog The Perils of Paper for statistics and research.
You’ll love cotton gift bags because of their long life. Get your whole extended family to buy a set so whenever you exchange gifts, they circulate back and forth between you all. Goodbye, endless consumption and goodbye single-use wrapping paper and tape!
Buy these bags and reuse them for decades!
Gift bag descriptions
1 Huge bag/Santa Sack. 52 x 72cm
A big bag to fill with unwrapped presents or pop your smaller gift bags inside to contain the spread under the tree. This fits larger Lego sets, a Generation girl doll, a new power drill, or -- as I got last Christmas -- a gorgeous orchid plant in a pot!
1 Large bag. 44 x 58cm
Large bags work well for large beach towels, handbags, board games, helmets, toy sets, and adult shoe boxes.
1 Medium bag. 35 x 50cm
Use the Medium for your smaller items such as PJs and togs, kids shoe boxes, small toy sets and games, make-up or toiletry bags, a bluetooth portable speaker, or headphones.
2 Book bags. 27 x 35cm.
A bit self-explanatory here, but being a reasonably sized bag this can be used for all sorts of other gifts as well. These will, however, fit your US trade size novels, and many of the recipe books you find at book stores.
How long does it take you to wrap presents?
The reality for many is that Christmas Eve is both wonderful and mental. You have to find the wrapping paper, tape, scissors, ribbons, gift tags—now the hours of wrapping begins!
When you use fabric gift bags you will get your Christmas eve back. Spend it watching that Christmas movie with a glass of wine.
