While walking my dogs (Rosie, left, Gary, right) on an Autumn morning in 2020, I was thinking about my gift bag collection that was taking over the spare room in our house. I'm sick of hoarding gift bags. Sure, I'm happy to give people that I know well enough a ratty, recycled gift bag, but if I'm meeting my kid's friend's parents for the first time, I'm guilty of buying a brand new gift bag from time to time... and it turns out I'm not alone.
Which is why I created the Round Trip Gift Bags!
I'm just one person with an idea, wanting to create something that I can be proud of. I think this is a great idea and I hope that it removes the ratty gift bag shame and people start scribbling on old gift bags and using them - because that's better than hoarding, and it's a hell of a lot better than landfill.
The first run of gift bags launched January 2021, it's a small run, but if these bags get enough interest it means I can print a bigger run and get the price down and reach more people so we can put an end to single use gift bags.
My dream is to one day stock other local creators products, supplying you with thoughtful gifts and wrapping.
Oh hi! It's me, Jas!
