As I wrapped up holiday gifts for my kids, nieces, and nephews this season, I decided to give small reusable snack bags to three of them. It was a bit of a silly joke with my sister (their mom), but I knew they would love a little pack of Goldfish and then they could also reuse the silicon snack bags for all their school snacks in the future. I’m a fan of reusable gift wrap (when it will get reused), and I knew these bags would be put to good use many times over.

Reusable silicon bags have gotten a lot more popular in the last few years. Initially, they seemed like a lot of work to clean, so I didn’t leap to invest in them. But when I found they could go in the dishwasher and easily air dry (if needed) on a cute little wooden rack, I thought they’d be fun to try.

I love the idea of gifting in reusable gift wraps like these silicone bags from Durbl. I can put all sorts of small gifts or gift kits into one of many different-sized silicone bags. Then the gift recipient can use the gift AND the wrapping!

11 Holiday Gift Ideas in Reusable Silicone Bags from Durbl

If this sounds up your alley, here are just a few gift ideas to wrap up in silicone bags from Durbl. I’m sure there are so many other ways to gift them, but hopefully one of these ideas inspires something fun for someone on your list!

LEGO Bricks in a Durbl silicone bag

My older son this year wanted some regular LEGO bricks (as opposed to pre-designed sets). I was able to find a bunch of them secondhand, and a Durbl silicone bag is a great way to wrap them up. He can even use this bag to store all the bricks if he’d like.

Popcorn kernels in a Durbl silicone bag

Did you know that you can pop popcorn kernels in the microwave in a silicone zip-top bag? Toss a handful or two of kernels in the bag, zip it up, and toss it in the microwave for a delicious snack. What a cool gift for a popcorn lover in your life. You could even pair it with movie tickets or an at-home movie experience to make it more exciting.

Snacks in a silicone zip-top bag

Does your gift recipient have a sweet tooth or love bite-sized crackers? Pick out some of their favorite bulk candy and add it to a Durbl silicone bag. If savory is more their style, fill a silicone zip-top bag with Goldfish crackers, Cheeze-its, or other crackers they will enjoy. It seems so simple, but I bet it would be a big hit.

First aid kit in a Durbl silicone bag

Do you have someone on your list who could use a first-aid kit? Maybe they’re headed off to college. Maybe they love to hike. Maybe they’re a new parent. There are so many reasons why we might love a simple first aid kit in our cars or bags. Add in some bandages, anti-bacterial cream, and other first aid supplies so they are all set when the need arises.

Puzzle books and art supply kits

I think the larger Durbl silicone bags might be great for holding all my boy’s school supplies. On that note, it could be a great way to give someone the gift of lots of art supplies, puzzle books, or fun little activities. Pick out a few things you think they might love and pack it all into the bag. Add a bow and you’re golden!

Sewing kit in a silicone bag

Even if they aren’t particularly crafty, a simple sewing kit is a really practical gift (which is my gifting language). A sewing kit can help make things like mending clothes (just the tiny things) a lot easier and more accessible. You don’t need to know how to sew to do things like fix a tiny hole in the inside of a jacket or put a button back on with a needle and thread.

Headphones and tech gear

All the cords spilling everywhere is a total mess. If you’re planning to get someone new headphones or a tech gadget, include a reusable silicone bag for the charger and other accessories that go along with it. It’s so much better than all the tech accessories landing all over the place.

Movie snacks and a theater gift card in a Durbl silicone bag

Do you sneak snacks into the movie theater? I am going to plead the fifth on this one. We often go to see a movie over the holiday break. If that’s on your agenda, put a few movie snacks along with a theater gift card into a silicone zip-top bag. Your gift recipient can use the bag to bring their snacks to the movie and use it again and again after the holidays.

Recipes and a grocery gift card in a reusable zip-top bag

Write down a few of your favorite recipes on index cards and sneak a grocery store gift card in between the recipe cards. It’s a personal and totally practical gift in one!

S’mores or hot cocoa kit

My boys go crazy for s’mores and hot cocoa. They would adore a kit of chocolate, graham crackers, and fluffy marshmallows or all the ingredients to make the perfect cup of hot chocolate. Put them all together in this kit of cozy snack time around a fire fit for the festive season.

Baby travel kit in a Durbl silicone bag

If you don’t need a whole grocery bag of all the things, create a baby travel kit for your new mom friend. Add in a couple of diapers, some wipes, and a pacifier or small toy. The reusable bag is perfect for keeping any mess contained and tucked into a purse or handbag while out and about.

This list of fun gift ideas in silicone bags from Durbl makes putting together something quick and simple. Not only could these be perfect for many people on your list, but they also make great gifts for adult gift exchanges (like all of these on this list of ideas for holiday gift exchanges among adults).

What else would you add to this list? Have you ever given a gift in this type of silicone reusable bag?
