Tote Bag Gift Bag
This one is both a wrapping idea and a gift idea. Instead of using wrapping paper or paper gift bag, use a tote bag. A little kid would love to receive a character tote bag (like the Hello Kitty one below). Or use a plain tote bag (you can find these at Hobby Lobby and other craft stores) made festive with embellishments or embroidery. Once it's done being a gift bag it can become a tote bag to carry books, craft supplies, stuffed animals, etc.
