Now for the eco-friendly wrapping...

There's no point in investing in one of these eco-friendly gifts for someone if you're just going to wrap it in plastic. So, with this in mind, you'll want to buy some eco-friendly wrapping utensils, too.

First of all, you can shop a huge range of eco-friendly wrapping paper at Amazon. Otherwise, kraft paper is a sustainable option that's recyclable and makes for pretty present wrapping. You can also buy recyclable tape from Amazon, to avoid ones with plastic in them.

If you'd rather not wrap your presents in single-use paper and tape, then why not head to your local thrift store and pick up a secondhand scarf? Pop your gift inside the scarf, tie it up as you please and you've got yourself a reusable wrap!

Hi! I'm Annie, and I'm the Head Ecommerce Editor at Real Homes. I've been part of the Real Homes team since 2018, when I joined as Deals Editor. Along with covering major sales events — from Black Friday to Amazon Prime Day — I review home must-haves so that you can buy with peace of mind. Mostly focusing on home fragrance and sleep, as well as a few vacuum cleaners, I've tested pretty much every item you can think of that you need in your home. I live on the outskirts of the city in a two-bed apartment with my husband and my pug, Doug. So I am always searching for compact alternatives and ways to save floor space. What about when I am not typing away? Well, you'll find me enjoying an iced coffee (no matter the season) and trying out the latest brunch spots the city has to offer, or booking my next holiday.
