Holiday Print Drawstring Bags
These bags were exactly what I wanted! I wanted to switch to reusable gift bags for Christmas gifts this year, but didn't have time to make my own. I was thrilled to find these for such a great price. They were the perfect size for most gifts, including paperback books, kids' shirts, jewelry, etc. Sticker name tags would not stick to the fabric- you will need to use tie-on name tags.

Won't suit my needs
The bags are a little smaller than I expected, but that's probably my own difficulties with spatial relationships.
The bigger problem is that the fabric is too thin. I was hoping to use these bags in place of wrapping paper, but they are so thin that I think the gift-receiver would be able to see what's in the bag before opening it. :( I may try to pair them with tissue paper and see what happens, but I don't expect to get as much use out of them as I'd hoped.

Thought these were much bigger.
I boought these bags to wrap presents in thinking they were normal "back pack" sized draw string bags. They were much smaller. I used them to make treat bags for people I was not buying gifts for.

Cloth Favor Bags
We are bringing 30+ gifts to a children's home in SE Asia and I thought these bags would make for easy wrapping. Unfortunately I'm spatially challenged and didn't realize how small they are. Most of the gifts won't fit in these bags and I'm back to the drawing board. If you are using the bags for party favors or very small gifts, they're great. For regular size gifts, look elsewhere.

Great size and Color
Perfect for knit caps, kids' t-shirts, small gifts. Lightweight, so make shipping to out-of-town friends less expensive. Reusable bags appreciated by recipients.

Great Environmentally Way to Give Gifts
I wanted to buy more reusable gift bags, and these fit the bill perfectly! I am having trouble finding recycled/recyclable paper gift bags, and these are even better anyway. They are a great size for smaller gifts, and the prints are cute. I plan to put tissue around the gift(s) inside, so if the material is a little transparent as other reviewers have noted, it won't matter. (I didn't immediately notice the transparency, so it can't be THAT bad!) I got these on sale, so I am fairly pleased with the price, too.

delighted with purchase
i bought these bags to put small gifts in for a Christmas party and they worked great. They hold a small loaf of bread besides a few other small items. Made a very good gift bag and pretty.

Cute bags and DRAWSTRING
The fact that these bags were decorative and drawstring was the best. Treats didn't have a chance to fall out.

Holiday print Drawstring Bags- Green alternative!
Great price, decent quality, but the fabric is a bit transparent! If you plan on using these in lieu of gift wrap, you may want to double up or use some tissue around the gift so you don't give away the surprise inside. Otherwise, a great way to go green as these can be reused again and again. I also love the Christmas print totes. Maybe stick some velcro near the top to discourage peeking!
