Want to get green AND give away a gift from your kitchen? Use empty and cleaned jars from various products that you have used. Make instruction tags from last year's Christmas Cards. For this year's gifts I reused tissue from Christmas saved from last year and cut up a calendar envelope - perfect for tags.
