Reusable bags are my wrap of choice for Christmas presents and have been for years. Chico has a neat holiday reusable bag that covers the gifts nicely.
Years ago, I tried to make my own wrapping bags. I’m not an artist with the sewing machine, though I’m not great I have repaired a seam or two. Well, I sewed a couple of big material envelopes with buttons to seal it closed. They were functional, not gorgeous or pretty, or even on the sides, but they were functional. I never saw them again, and I’m pretty sure they were never used more than that one time. Since then I’ve used paper sacks, thinking they were reusable, but knowing people probably just threw them away rather than keep them a year. Lately I’ve been buying reusable bags and giving them away (though don’t tell my sister Dawn – somehow I end up asking her for my bags back because I run out – she’s been a trooper about that). I do have special bags that I keep for my family and yes, Chico Bags are among them.
There was an uproar earlier this year because some of the grocery bags sold in the stores contained lead. Chico bags rest assured contain no lead at all. Concerns about ecoli or other bacteria can be washed down the drain, literally. Throw these bags in the washing machine after putting meat or other foods that may have leaked.
I received a Holiday Christmas Bag to try out. The Holiday Bag is much bigger than the normal sized bag, and would hold most gifts, unless they were unusually large.

A Chico Holiday Gift Bag was sent to me for a review. My personal opinion is that I love Chico Bags and think they are quality made and would make a great wrap for a present.
