Reusing old/worn-out materials 

Try reusing materials that you already have at home instead of purchasing new gift wraps. Consider using old newspapers or magazines to make unique and interesting gift wraps, and leftover fabric scraps or tea towels can be tied around a gift to add a personal touch. You can also save a lot of money by reusing ribbons, bows, and other embellishments.

Try giving gift tags that are personalized   

Instead of having pre-made gift-tags instead of buying pre-made ones. Although it may not be a professional tag with clean-cut and precise designs.

Natural materials can enhance the rustic look of your gift packaging. These materials are frequently free or inexpensive and can be easily gathered from your backyard or nearby grounds. Like small preserved flowers or colored petals.
