    Mom always used the comic pages from the Sunday paper. What other wraps have you used in a pinch?

    I have used plain printer paper, and fancied it up with stickers or ribbons.

    I have wrapped gifts in comic book pages before too.

    coloring book pages, paper bags, material for making clothes and probably a few other things. i think it is kind of cool to get a gift wrapped in something you don't expect.

    Sometimes when I am wrapping a gift for a special someone, i only use used paper or plastics, and i wrap it many times like 5x and with tape on it so she'll be surprised what's really inside smile

    You can do it to, use anything you have in your place, or anything that is present and use it as a gift wrapper to add a little surprise.

    For wedding, baby, or bridal shower gifts, I use tulle and tie with a pretty ribbon. I have also used fabric for odd-shaped gifts.

    Tin foil would be a good one as it's shinny as well. You could even get away with little or no tape. . . .

    I recently received a birthday present that had been "wrapped" with post-it notes. Probably doesn't sound too great, but each note had its own message ranging from "Happy Birthday!" to an inside joke. I actually saved the box, I liked it so much. Probably not something you'll want to do for more formal occasions, but works great as a casual, personalized gift smile

    Tea Towels - especially useful if the gift is for use in the kitchen and the tea-towel can also be used as well (an extra gift).

    Artwork - if you have young children you can recycle and reuse their artwork as gift wrapping.

    Using the Sunday's comic paper is colorful and with a red shiny bow should be festive for the holiday season.
