thanks for the ideas ladies. I've used a cereal box as an alternative but I got one box left as I've thrown my empty cereal boxes before. (too late!) they're not dress shirts so I can roll them up. I actually used one "Pringles" tin and put one shirt there. lol!

I did my son's this year in tissue paper and made it look like a big piece of candy, with curly ribbon at each end and the "extra" tissue sticking out the ends!

I wrap things like this all the time. They can usually guess it's clothes, but makes fun looking packages.

You could always make a pillow box from a sheet or two of CS. I did that with a stuffed animal for a niece. It was pretty easy, cute, and worked well.

I totally ditto rolling them and wrapping them light "christmas poppers" (candy things)

We gave my grandma an apron one year, and took two dish towels and sewed them together to look like a pillow case, down both long sides, and up one short end, and sewed ribbon on to make it into a gift bag. put the apron in there.

She later hung the "bag" in her laundry room to put those orphaned objects that are in the dryer in, you know, coins, small toys, stuff that people left in their pockets. then, at Christmas, me and my cousin got to go through the bag and divide the "treasures". (of which, half was ours anyway, LOL) But it was fun.

Would you be able to use the pop top can for the shirts? I mean a larger can not the fruit cup kind.

I save my Yuban coffe cans for this! They now have a pull off top, so I open from the bottom with a safety can opener and use them for larger items!

The large Orange juice boxes are great too! You can cover them, open up the top and put in your item and glue them closed again.
