Give What Matters with these thoughtful, eco-inspired DIY gifts wrapped in an endlessly reusable, radically functional Stasher bag. We call that a gift in a gift.


Cookie dough stored in Stand Up Stasher bagsBatch Made in Heaven. The Festive Stand-Up Trio Bundle is perfect for gifting rolled up cookie dough. Include baking instructions and make it extra by adding complementary accessories — a rolling pin, cookie cutters, colorful oven mitts, a festive apron — you get the idea. Try the Quart or Half Gallon bags for gifting a batch of baked cookies (these classics are always a hit). DIY Granola Gifts Wrapped in Stasher Bags

Cereal Happiness. Homemade granola is easy to make, and it multitasks almost as well as your Stasher bags. Fill a bowl for breakfast. Use it for topping yogurt, a smoothie bowl, ice cream. Pack it up for snacking on the go. Try this recipe for granola that’s gluten and refined sugar-free — much healthier than store bought. Eco tip: Buy ingredients from the bulk bins to minimize packaging waste.

Stasher Bags filled with loose leaf tea

Tea Time. Got a loved one who loves tea? Steep on this: Most people purchase tea bags for convenience, but many tea brands use plastic in their tea bags (yuck!) — not to mention packaging and tea bag wrappers. Brewing loose tea is not difficult and it’s much more flavorful, so why not convert them to a healthier tea habit that generates less waste? Purchase loose tea in bulk, package it in a cute storage container (aka Stasher bag) to keep it fresh, add a tea steeper and mug, then put a bow on it!

Rosemary Salt gift stored in Stasher bags

Seasonings Greetings. DIY herb salts are easy to make with just sea salt or kosher salt, your favorite fresh herbs, and a blender or food processor. Package your herbal-icious creations in silicone Stasher bags, create a cute label, or use a non-toxic chalk or dry erase marker to write directly on the matte side of the Stasher bag — watch this video for Stasher bag writing tips.

This gift will get rave reviews. 👏 

Cocktail Spirits wrapped in leak-free Stasher bags

Cocktail Party. Let’s raise a toast to this clever gift idea! 🍸 Purchase a variety of small-size spirits that nestle nicely inside a leak-free Stasher bag. With 8 inches of headroom, the Stand-Up Mega is a perfect size. Add accessories, mix-ins, and a cocktail recipe book to complete the portable mini bar!

DIY spa gifts wrapped in two-toned Stasher bags

Spa Time. It’s never easy to prioritize self-care time, so when this home pampering experience shows up under the tree wrapped in the Stasher bags, your recipient will be overjoyed. Try DIYing non-toxic bath bombs or lavender body scrub. Add handmade soaps, candles, a good read, and a cozy spa towel to make your gift recipient feel like you’ve transported to a luxurious spa.

DIY coupon gift

Gift it Forward. We all know the most treasured gifts are not things. As it turns out, these gifts are often better for the planet, too. Create a personalized certificate or coupon that describes your gift. For example...

  • Offer your time and / or talents to friends and family — make homemade meals, offer help with a project where your talent adds value, donate babysitting time, or whisk them away for a fun outdoor adventure. Come up with something that will bring joy to your loved one.
  • Select a nonprofit organization that has meaning for your recipient and make a donation in their name.

Tip 💡 If your gifting (or budget) goal is to DIY and avoid new purchases, there’s no shame in regifting — passing along gently used items is a win for eco-minded givers. If your Stasher bag collection is abundant, those gently used bags are great for “wrapping” any gift!
