Primark have come up with a winning idea this Christmas; their shopping bags can be reused as festive wrapping paper.

The brilliant hack means that you can wrap up your gifts this year in a way that is both sustainable and recyclable, because most wrapping paper, rather surprisingly, is actually headed for landfill.

But how does this invention work?

Well, apparently not too many people know about the bags and you have to ask staff for them specifically.

However, TikTok user Sandra Hawkes has showcased how to use the bags, and the results look beautiful.

The mum first shared footage of herself buying gifts which came in the large bag from a Primark store.


Sandra then showed off the gifts looking amazing, in the red and beige striped paper.

What is even more fabulous is that the gift tags also come as part of the bag.

She captioned the end of the video, writing “Well done Primark!”

So far her present wrapping hack has garnered over 1.1 million views online, with many people being shocked about the secret design.

One wrote: "As someone who works at Primark and gives out these bags I didn’t even know this."

Another added: "I literally work in Primark and only just realised THIS is why they are that pattern”.

Others were quick to compliment the method, with one writing: "Wrapped some of my pressies in these! Just needs loads of sellotape."

A second wrote: "Amazing idea all shops should do this."

A third commented: "This is such a great idea, I had no idea they were doing this”.

Primark have recently opened some of their stores 24 hours a day to help bring in customers in tiers where shops are open.
