Default The Best Gift bags- Airline Bags

I know it sounds crazy, but for years I have collected airline barfbags (unused) and used them as giftbags. I love the printed ones - IMO Delta has the best. United seems to have boring bags that are plain, but I'd much prefer people to know exactly where I got them. The upshot is these bags are waterproof and a nice small size. Most of them come with built in closures as well. Throw a nice tag on them and you have quite the conversation piece at your next party (as a bonus, write on the bottom what flight you acquired it on).

On your next flight look for the bag and think of the smiles you could bring to someone (teenagers particularly love these giftbags).

Anyone ever done this? What are some odd things that you've found fun new uses for?

Interesting idea. Never thought of it.

Wonder what made the OP think to use the bags in that new way?

Never used it as a gift bag but DS (24 at the time) made a snake hand puppet
as in "I'm sick of these MF snakes on a plane" and tormented his 22 year old sister with it. (she was tired and wanted to sleep he kept bugging her with the "snake on a plane") It was like they were little again LOL
