I was giving my friend a graduation gift but didn't have time to run to the store. Instead of just leaving it in the bag I used the bag as the gift wrap and some blue (her favorite color) string as an accent bow. This will work as long as the bag is thick (so you can't see the gift you're trying to surprise them with) and big enough to wrap your gift...and is pretty enough, of course. He name also starts with an A so this happened to work out perfectly. The wrap was certainly unique.
