I just HATE to wrap.

Gift bags. 

Everything goes in a gift bag.

I love to receive a beautifully wrapped gift, but I just won't do it.

I always try to save wrapping paper from gifts that I have recieved so I'll re-use those. I also have gift bags and colorful tissue paper to re-use.

I have a ton of paper bags, so they will be the first used for wrapping paper. To avoid looking totally crappy, I will crochet up some ribbon and flowers, or whatever I feel inspired by. I also have alot of random fabric swatches that I use, and sew them together if I need to make it bigger. Totally random, but I don't want to buy paper that most people will just throw away anyways.

I believe in luck: how else can you explain the success of those you don't like?

I will use embellished gift bags, much faster than wrapping everything.  Plus the bags can be resused.

My family (ie dad, aunt, other extended family) ALWAYS used to save the larger pieces of gift wrap to be re-used next year (therefore, wrapping paper CAN be recycled, yay!)  In past years, my sister used to use these scraps to make beautiful "patchwork packages" . . . it was almost a shame to rip it open to find out what's inside!
I think I've also used Christmas stamps on recycled brown paper grocery bags . . .

I think that this year I am going to use wrapping paper(or brown paper which i have a thing for), but use no tape and tie them with ribbon so I can use the paper next year without it being marked up with tape.

I am looking for more "green" wrapping options as well.  But I love wrapping and pretty packages!!! I have started wrapping wedding and birthday gifts in reusable (cloth) grocery bags... Any other ideas?  Fabric wrapping would be nice but expensive!
