Take advantage of those charities in the malls that will wrap your gift(s) for a small donation. If you wrap the way I do, you take EVERY opportunity to have someone else wrap your gifts. If a store offers free gift wrapping, I take advantage of it. But it's really great to have use a charity to wrap your gift for you. The charity gets money, and your gift looks lovely!

I reuse christmas bags from the year before if they are still in good condition. I also use christmas table cloths to wrap some of the gifts that are too big to wrap. I just drape them over the gift , and tuck the ends under the gift.
Don't waste money on charities that waste money or don't do what they say they are doing, Many "charities" are really scams that give themselves names that sound similar to the real charities that do good work.
