5 Things to Know When Buying Tissue Paper for a Gift Bag

Finding the perfect gift for that special someone requires a lot of thought, time and, for better or worse, money. There’s no greater feeling than finally scoring a gift that we know that person in our life will be absolutely dazzled by, but the work doesn’t end there. It’s also important to put the effort into preparing that gift with the perfect gift bag and, of course, the perfect tissue paper, which should never be overlooked.  

Tissue Paper Can Make an Impression on the Gift 

When buying tissue paper for a gift bag, besides just looking at what might be the absolute cheapest, depending upon your budget, here are several things you should want to consider.

#1: Make Sure the Design Matches the Bag

First off, you always want to choose tissue paper that complements the gift bag, rather than clashing with it. Pick a complementary color or pattern, keeping in mind that it doesn’t need to match it exactly. Think of a color palette that would make for a beautiful visual presentation.

#2: Consider the Transparency

If you intend to wrap the actual gift in tissue paper before placing it inside of the gift bag, consider the transparency of the tissue paper if you want to avoid paper that’s completely see-through, eliminating the suspense of opening the gift.  

#3: Think About Its Durability

Similarly, to above, if you’re going to be actually wrapping a gift in tissue paper, you will want to make sure that the paper is durable enough to be wrapped properly without ripping apart.  

#4: Make Sure You Have Enough

One of the biggest mistakes that people make is not buying enough tissue paper for gift-wrapping, whether it be for one gift or several. Always pay close attention to the number of sheets that are included as well as the size of each sheet, to know how much paper you’ll have to work with. We always recommend buying more than you’ll think you need, because you can always store the leftover away for your next gift-giving opportunity.

#5: Consider its Eco-Friendliness

One of the most overlooked factors when choosing tissue paper is its impact on the environment. Most wrapping paper out there is natural, since it’s made from wood pulp, but some of it’s treated with synthetic materials that stop it from breaking down properly. Stick to wrapping paper that’s made by companies utilizing sustainable paper materials, and even ensure that their paper is fully biodegradable? Why? Well, so that it benefits the environment rather than harms it. Also, consider how the tissue paper is packaged – a lot of companies use synthetic materials like polyethylene to wrap the sheets, which all but defeats the purpose of buying eco-friendly tissue paper.
