Is it "cheating" when you use gift bags instead of wrapping a box with paper and ribbons?

gift bags are easier.

  • no of course not !!! I prefer to get at least one bag (when we exchange gifts outside our home) it gives me something to carry my gifts home in.

    I like to go to the dollar store and buy the plain bags and bring them home and spruce them up with glitter. My 7 y.o. son loves to help me do this and of course he informs the family member that he helped to make the bag prettier so they like it all the more.

    a quick gift wrap and Christmas craft all in one !!

  • I don't think so. I don't think people care, either way they are getting a gift and are probably more concerned about whats on the inside. After they open it tell them to give the bag back so you can reuse it for their gift next year. lol jk

  • I gift bag everything except for my kids presents they have to rip the paper and have that mess for me to pick up.

  • If it is, I've been cheating for years!

    However this may be the first year I'll be wrapping more than using gift bags. Hope they don't look too scary when I'm done wrapping, LOL.

  • Some gifts are hard to wrap, so it is easier to put in gift bag. And some gifts that are small looks cute in small gift bags.
