The holidays are coming up, and with that comes one of my favorite things - gift wrapping! But what if you don't have any wrapping paper? Well, maps and nautical charts make excellent gift wrap, and are sometimes even easier to use than regular wrapping paper because they don't tear as easily, and they crease nicely. Use regular clear tape to seal, or get creative and use patterned washi tape. Tie off with a simple yarn bow or get fancy with a striped baker's twine bow. If you're searching for nautical charts your best bet might be ebay if you live inland, or ask someone you know who has a boat if they have any old ones you can have.
