Great ideas! One year, I sent a valentine's day present to my sister in a big box from Eggo waffles and decorated the box by drawing hearts all over with a red sharpie & writing "Everyone loves waffles!" with a blue one. She said the people in her college mailroom were laughing when she came to pick it up, and she loved it!
Unfortunately, the postal service won't let you use old boxes like that anymore - they have to have all the writing/decoration covered up. It's especially frustrating when the postal service DOES try to be green in so many other ways, like using re-refined motor oil in their trucks.
One year, the grocery store where I shop had pretty decorated paper sacks, so I wrapped all my gifts in those, then added old cloth ribbons from the thrift store and glued on things like pine cones for decoration - everyone thought they were so pretty!
