Do you need to wrap presents in a gift bag?
So what should you wrap and what should you drop in a gift bag? If it comes in a box, wrapping is ideal because it is easy.

Can you put clothes in a gift bag?
Fold the piece of clothing neatly. You can wrap almost any item of clothing in a gift bag: pants, T-shirts, dresses, scarves, skirts, and more. If you’re gifting a T-shirt, for example, lay it facing down on a flat surface and fold in both sleeves. Then, fold the collar back so it aligns up with the hem of the shirt.
Is it okay to not wrap gifts?
Neat wrapping sets the bar for the gift too high, intimating that it will be a great present. Sloppy wrapping, on the other hand, sets low expectations, suggesting it’ll be a bad gift. So a sloppily wrapped gift leads to pleasant surprise, while one that’s neat-looking results in disappointment.
