Did you know there are many options available for reusable gift wrap? One of our 'ens' or goals here at enfold is to see garbage reduction as a whole, especially when it's associated with gift giving. We love that there are others making that possible as well. While we've made every effort to make a product that has as many applications to a wide range of users, we realize a different product may fit your needs or aesthetic even better. Check out what's available!
Lilywrap is a stretchy fabric with a built in drawstring ribbon and is available in several fabric choices. They have a customizable option as well. Very cool.
Lyziwraps are fun colorful fabrics with ribbon on each end that you cinch shut and a pocket to hold a card. They are also available in several sizes.
Box Sox is another option. They come in a variety of prints and sizes and like what's available from lilywrap, have a little stretch to them. And like the others, they also have an attached ribbon.
The list wouldn't be complete without sharing our own options as well. Our (enfold) gift wraps come in two sizes and fit a variety of gifts from books to shoe boxes (even a basketball). They come in a few fabric choices - right now, hand screened organic cotton and reversible seersucker but more are on the way.
With all the various reusable gift wrap options available, we hope that you will be able to find something that will work for your next gift giving occasion. All keep paper and ribbon out of the garbage can, all have the necessary supplies for wrapping included, and all will save you tons of time compared with traditional wrapping paper.

We love being surprised! Lady Gaga's performance at the Oscar's of classics from the Sound of Music (in front of Julie Andrews!!) took many by surprise. This is the best kind too - it was because of talent and class - not the typical wrecking ball manner of shock. Yes, it was outside of her normal routine, but it was also utilizing talent that was always there in a new way. It left many thinking, I had no idea she...
