Sure, the unwrapping can be part of the fun, but they'll still have the element of surprise, and they'll get two gifts in one- what's inside and this lovely reusable gift bag to tote around toys or special objects. We like the idea of trading scissors and tape, and that trash bag of ripped and wrinkled paper for one of these pretty printed bags. The different prints and collections you can choose from make it really fun. We're liking the organic prints, and the "Santa" print is not overtly Christmasy, so you can use it the rest of the year as well. You can even print some very cute gift tags on the Lucky Crow website for free.
