Kowhai on Mawhero - 10 Christmas Gift Bags
Happiness in a bag is the best description of this luscious mawhero (pink) bag with bright yellow kowhai and teamed with a bright green ribbon. The light of your life will adore a gift in this bag on their next special occasion.
This fabric was designed by young Taranaki artist, Emily Moffitt, exclusively for Waste Free Celebrations and we know you’ll LOVE it.
This design is great for Christmas but you can also use it for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day etc!
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!
Your 10 gift bags individual value $185
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 Small bags. 23 x 30cm
Perfect for the kids fidget toys, it also would fit a new phone or watch, a keep-cup, candle, fragrance, or console games.
2 Tiny bags. 12 x 17cm
These cuties will hold the small and precious items such as jewellery, a deck of cards, wireless earpods, or a gift card, otherwise fill them with candy, or small fidgets for the kids’ stocking fillers.
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.
1 Bottle bag. 18x42cm
These will fit the standard glass bottles of your favourite drop but they can be used for any long narrow gifts, like pencil cases for the kids or a hammer for dad.
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.
“Fabulous, I love mine. We had only a small box of rubbish this year compared to our usual pile. The bags look amazing under the tree” — Sarah
"My goodness, Christmas Eve was awesome ..... so stress-free!!!” — Theresa
