Christmas present wrapped in brown paper

Money saving tips from our 2023 low-cost Christmas advent calendar

If you haven’t already started your Christmas wrapping, why not think about doing something new this year.

Did you know that 40 million rolls of sticky tape are used to wrap presents each year in the UK? And around 50,000 trees are cut down to make the wrapping paper?

For an eco-friendlier Christmas that’s low-cost too, how about trying something a bit different:

  • Wrapping with material, newspaper or rustic brown paper
    Reusing delivery boxes to hide your gifts in
    Using natural greenery or materials to decorate your gift instead of a plastic bow
  • Using recyclable paper tape instead of plastic

If you’re feeling really creative, there are loads of tips online about how you can wrap presents without using any tape.
