Our friends at Inhabitat posted this ingenious list of eco-friendly ways to wrap presents and we had to pass it on. Called Future Present, they are the result of a challenge to fellow designers to find alternatives to the waste that is our usual Christmas wrapping.

Twenty of the best ideas -- all tape-free -- are shown, on the design agency's website. For anyone still packing up presents tonight, there are some very creative ideas. The wrappings include foil, clothes pins, socks, string, brown paper and fabric. Get inspired by the cool pics after the fold.
