    This eco-friendly, earth-friendly idea means you can give your shopping bags a second life. Plus, they can be recycled, unlike most sparkly and shiny wrapping paper used this time of year.

    As long as you’re careful not to overfill your shopping bags, you’ll be all set for a festive gift-wrapping session. It’s worth keeping them to have enough paper to work with.

    Brighten up your Primark gift wrap with red and gold ribbons and bows. Alternatively, you might want to keep things neutral by tying it up with brown twine and tucking in some faux foliage.

    You can even add small baubles to further showcase your Christmas gifts under the tree. There are endless gift wrapping ideas that will make even the smallest of stocking fillers feel special.

    When a Primark customer shared photos of her gifts wrapped in bags on the Extreme Budget DIY and life hacks Facebook group, thousands of people liked the post. ‘What a fabulous idea! Well done Primark! It looks amazing,’ one commented.

    Another fan said you can buy rolls of the same red-striped paper in stores if you run out. If you look at one side of the bag, you will also find gift tags to cut out.

    Primark’s £8 Christmas wreaths are also proving very popular this year to bring a festive touch to front doors and dining tables. What type of wrapping paper are you going to opt for this year?
