Christmas value bags
from Jackson, Mi.
About Me Budget Shopper
Comments about Christmas Value Bags:
I have arthritis in my hands, these are heavensent. Beautiful shining prints, assorted sizes, what could be greater. These are cheaper than the dollar stores and nicer in many cases. As for bad smells,just open them up and let them air out or use a very small dose of air or fabric freshener in it. All non food use paper products smell from chemicles,glue and being packaged and stored for a period of time. Another thing I like is the glue is not all dried out so when put your gift inside the side dont't fall apart.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

smell issue with largest bag
from Morrow, LA
About Me Midrange Shopper
I was very disappointed. They looked great but the biggest one had a strong smell, which to me (my impression only, not an expert) smelled like mold or mildew. The apparent condition and strength of the bags was great, but I couldn't use the big one with the smell and chose not to use any of the others because they were packaged together. I know Miles Kimball tries hard to do good products, so I will offer to send them back for the company to check. Based on all the great comments here, my experience is probably the exception, not the rule--maybe an off batch?
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
This is a Steal!
from Pacific Northwest
I have a good deal of experience (as a mother of 5) with wrapping, and with kids and a spouse who'd rather drop a gift in a bag than wrap a box any day. I have seen orders that appeared to be a rare bargain, but failed to note the dimensions of the largest bag, or the fact that if the bag is plastic, it's going to be really tacky, no matter whether there's tissue included or not. That said...take a look at the largest bag offered here. Now look at the price. Go to your favorite drug or variety store, and I think you'll find that for this whole set, you can only buy two of that size bag, at least if you live in an expensive part of the country, as I do. Even if yours is not a pricey area, this will still be a bargain. These bags are as nice as any you will find in a famous name-brand mall gift store. They're just a lot less expensive, and you do get duplicate designs (but they are not ALL alike). This was a terrific buy...and I did a lot of comparing w other catalog and online sources before making the purchase. Do it!
Christmas Value Bags
from Ocean City, MD
Sizes of bags not as listed. Received 4 small bags.I needed 2 13x15 size for gifts and received none of this size. Why list sizes and then send different sizes? I purchased these bags for gifts I have and can not use most of them.
Not as advertised. Not the quality I received in the past. Not the sizes as advertised. Only 1 Giant bag 15x20 (solid green), (2) 10x10 (solid red), (1) 7 3/4 x 9 1/2, (2) 7 1/4 x 9 1/2, and (4) 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 printed patterns. I had measured gifts before ordering these bags to ensure that I would receive bags that I CAN USE. If they are not going to send bags the sizes as advertised then DO NOT send other sizes. This is not a bargain and not of value to me._
would buy again

Not as Pictured
By Retired Teacher
from New Jersey
My rating of 2 stars might be misleading. The bags were wonderful...but what I received were not the ones pictured. I wanted to use the mid-size bags for a children's party, and the reindeer were just perfect. What was sent in that size, were bags featuring poinsettias, not really as appropriate for younger children as the reindeer would have been. My money was refunded.
Truly "Value Bags"
By Jackie B
These bags will still be in good condition to reuse next year. This also means less trash from ripped wrapping paper. There is a good variety of sizes and they were all I needed to wrap my Christmas presents.

Nice gift bag assortment
from Chicago, IL
I used these bags for Christmas. I needed something to put larger stocking stuffers into. I was disappointed by how narrow the bags were. I wasn't able to get much in them so I had to use multiple bags. They are made of pretty strong paper but be careful because they will tear around the handles if you put too much in them.
