Forget the gold and the glitz. It really is the thought that counts when your holiday gifts are wrapped in clever packaging that doesn't cost an arm and a leg — or a tree. Recycled boxes or tubes, scraps of corrugated cardboard, bits of fabric or art paper, buttons, beads, raffia and a sprig or two of something green are all it takes to create unique gift cards and wrapping. The environment will thank you and so will the lucky recipients.
