HANDPICKED HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Make Your Wrap

Peace on Earth

These eco-friendly gift-wrap ideas allow you to go way beyond using the comics from the Sunday paper or the yellow and white pages from the phone book.

ONKAMAL 

Kamal Pastel is a Richmond-based artist and owner of a company that produces eco-friendly products printed on 100 percent cotton paper or 100 percent craft chipboard paper. Based on textile designs, her gorgeous gift-wrap roll ($6.50) measures 16 by 23 inches, and each roll includes two sheets of wrap and two sheets of tissue paper. The gift wrap is only available on her website (onkamal.com), but you can also look for her eco-friendly cards at Mongrel and the VMFA store.

ECOLOGIC

Ecologic sells eco-friendly gift wrap from a company called Crinkle. The pillow box and gift purses ($2.50 each) are perfect for smaller gifts. The gift wrap ($3.50) and gift bags ($3) are suitable for medium to larger gift items. All Crinkle products are printed using soy ink on recycled materials. Check out the mittens gift-bag kit — a white background with colorful gloves adorning the wrap. In December, Ecologic is providing free Crinkle gift-package kits to any customer who purchases a holiday present in their store. ecologicthestore.com

 TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES

Ten Thousand Villages in Carytown is a great place to pick up environmentally friendly products. Their gift wrap ($3.50 a sheet) is imported from Bangladesh and is made from sustainable materials such as jute, cotton scraps, water hyacinth and hemp. They also offer jute mesh bags ($7.50 each) in cream and black that would be perfect for wine or medium-sized gifts.

Rolls of white or craft paper provide limitless canvasses for your imagination. Get out the spray paint, the stamps and the photographs and go crazy with your creativity. 1) VISUAL ARTS CENTER OF RICHMOND On Dec. 6 at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, come to the “Present Factory” — an event for all ages from 1 to 5 p.m., where you can learn how to silk-screen and screen-press your own gift wrap. They’re even allowing attendees use a letterpress to make their own holiday gift cards. Enjoy free snacks and music as you create. visarts.org 2) KATHY’S KOPIES What better way to personalize gift wrap than to create a sheet out of your favorite pictures? Kathy’s Kopies can print 11-by-17 sheets of paper using your photos. Bring in your own hard copies of photographs and have the staff arrange and print them for you on their 20-pound paper. You can also create a publisher doc with your pictures arranged exactly how you want them to appear, or put your pictures in JPEG format on a flash drive and bring it in.

3) MR. CRAFTY: EDDIE ROSS Eddie Ross is a designer, floral arranger and culinary enthusiast. Last November, he spoke at our sister magazine’s holiday event, R•Home for the Holidays, and showed our guests how to make beautiful, homemade wrapping paper using only white craft paper, inexpensive lace and spray paint in festive colors. The demonstration is at eddieross.com
