If you've ever looked at a mountain of shredded wrapping paper after a birthday party or Christmas morning and felt guilty about the waste—even if you intend to recycle it all—then you'll surely appreciate Nendo's alternative gift wrap that turns into a reusable tote afterwards.

The simple fabric bags come in three different sizes, with six different colors of ribbon to choose from, so they should be able to accommodate most gifts short of a new car. You simply put the present inside, gather up the excess fabric underneath it, and secure it with the decorative ribbon. And after the gift is opened, the ribbon, which remains tethered to the bottom of the bag, threads through a set of four grommets on top to become its adjustable-length handle.

There's nothing to throw away or recycle, and if they don't end up liking your gift, they'll still walk away with something usable. [Nendo via Inhabitat]

we have twins, so that has translated into quite a large pile of gift bags. we just turn around and reuse them back at other kids' parties... wrapping happens quite rarely.

Side note: gift cards for kids - nope. get them to buy a kids book and sign the inside. the kids books are usually the same price as a stupid card anyways. this way they have a keepsake as a toddler and something for the parents to read to them, and something to read by themselves once they learn how.
