Do you throw it away?

HannahPanda HannahPanda
Do you throw your gift wrap away when it's given to you? I like to keep the bags/boxes or reuse them.

Sometimes I throw it away, or keep it if it's nice.

It seems that whenever I throw that sort of stuff away, I end up needing a bag or some gift wrap like two days later.

If it's in good shape I will totally reuse it!

If the wrap is not ruined we keep it. We always keep boxes and bags.

I'm more likely to keep gift bags than wrapping paper, but if the paper is really nice I may reuse it!

I keep the bags, but toss the paper.

I keep bags. As for wrapping paper, it either goes into recycling or goes into the fireplace.

I keep the bags usually. I don't save wrapping paper.

I toss the paper because they're all wrinkled and torn. If it's a very nice box, I'll keep it, but I'll probably forget about it for years to come.

bags and boxes are kept but wrapping paper is recycled.

I prioritize space and lack of clutter.

I keep most bags and boxes. I try to salvage some of the paper if it isn't too wrinkled, but it usually is too far gone after the unwrapping and then the pets usually attack the papery remains.

Nice bags and boxes I keep but I do get rid of wrapping paper.

It really depends on the bag. I've saved some nice bags before.

I try to salvage it if I can, and don't accidently rip it!

I shred it to hell if I get a wrapped gift. Bags, however, I keep if they're a decent size and reuse them in the near future.

I agree, it really depends!

I'm such a clutter bug that I throw it away, otherwise it adds to the clutter in my house. I'm not a physically organized person (I'm intellectually organized, but I am not good with... stuff.) and saving things like wrapping paper is silly for me. I do save gift bags, because they are expensive and I really use them again.

I never "re-gift" though. Tacky. You may get a used gift bag from me, but you'll never get a gift someone gave me.

I'll quite happily reuse gift bags and boxes. I won't reuse paper, though. I'll save it if it's super pretty and I think I might use it in an art project, but otherwise, ripping it to tiny shreds is half the fun.

I recycle the paper and reuse the bags later on.

I like to carefully unwrap my gifts and keep the paper from any meaningful presents I receive. I find that when people try to find the perfect gift wrap, its good to acknowledge their work.

Depends on weather or not I can use it again.

I keep boxes and bags, but generally throw away paper. My father in law carefully unwraps presents and keeps a lot of the paper though. He's an oddball like that.

Bags and boxes get kept. Paper gets tossed. We have bags in our family that have been through maybe a dozen Christmases. We also like the gift boxes that are already decorated, so you just have to tape them shut and add ribbon.

I reuse whatever I can, if it's in good condition.

Bags I always keep and re-use, paper I only keep if it's particularly nice and if it didn't get ripped to shreds in the opening process

really nice stuff, yes.

I keep the bags and sometimes the tissue paper if it's not too crumpled but always chuck the paper.

As a mixed media artist I sometimes save the strangest of things . Gift wrap is always great for collage work .

I was going to post this almost verbatim.
