Christmas Tins--cheap, easy, and reusable wrapping

Using Christmas tins from the thrift store is a great way to wrap Christmas presents.  

Each of the tins in the picture cost about 50 cents.  Awesome.  

They make gift wrapping SUPER fast.  Just pop that present inside and you're done!

And you don't have to limit yourself to just Christmas prints.  Any fun design would be fun to find under the tree on Christmas morning.  They can even be good for storing a gift after Christmas is over.

Tins also make it simple to wrap oddly shaped presents.  

Best of luck in your hunt for holiday tins!  And...

Those are SO WAY cuter than any I found on my hunt...and cheaper. I drives me crazy when our Goodwill charges you what it would cost new. What I did buy were some china Christmas plates for putting cookies on for gifts. They were 50 cents and a lot classier than the plasticy fake ones...which were $1 at Goodwill...there's no figuring out how they do their prices.

I love those alphabet tins! In my opinion, not Christmas ones are the best because they can be used year round.
