After receiving a gift last year in a food storage container, I made a note that I wanted to do that this holiday – and for other holidays like birthdays and baby showers. The food storage container becomes part of the gift (bonus!) – and you don't end up with all of those boxes that get stored in a closet or under a bed – or they get trashed or put in the recycling bin. Below are some items that fit into our Premier containers – which are nice for gifting with their textured pattern on the base and red lids!
Here are a couple of small items – buttons (from Not Made in China) and lip gloss.
When I got my gift there was colored tissue paper inside around the actual gift, which looked nice. Then you almost don't even need wrapping paper – less waste! YES! I will admit that I was lazy and skipped that step. Here are some items in the 5-cup Premier…
Baggu reuseable bags (which I love and use all the time, so I'm giving them to everyone for Christmas), and then I even fit [squashed] two tank tops into one of them!
I also used this idea this year to send gifts to family and friends who were celebrating fun events. I had to ship the items, but I packed goodies inside some of of our other products.
Do you have any other containers that you use instead of boxes?
