Paper bags 

In some stores, you can find gift bags made of 100% paper. They aren't uglier or more expensive than plastic bags, and can be recycled after use. 

Eco-friendly paper with stamps 

Eco-friendly paper can be used in many ways. One of them are stamps that look charming. If you don't have stamps, you can easily cut them out of a potato and then paint it with a paint. 
I found my paper in Ikea.

 Natural additives 

You can attach pine cones, dried lemons or a sprig of lavender or spruce to plain white or brown paper.

Paper bags 

If you don't have to pack big presents, you can put them in bags and tie them with a paper string. You can find these from the picture in Flying Tiger.
