My friend sent my Christmas present in one of those gift bags last year. As it happens, what I’m sending her isn’t easily wrap-able. So I thought, why not use the bag? I asked my coworker her opinion as to whether a woman would be put put by that. She said she sees nothing wrong with it, and told me how she likes to recycle stuff. She thought it just makes sense to re-use a pretty bag, rather than to throw it away.
If you are a woman, would you be offended by receiving a gift in a bag you bought last year?
(I’ll just stop into Hallmark tomorrow and get a new one. But I’m curious.)
