Make Gifts Spiffy in a Jiffy with Zippy Cutes™ Gift Bags from American Greetings

Cleveland (July 11, 2018) – In the same way that dressing up a table or putting on your Sunday best signals something special is happening, so does the presentation of a cheerfully wrapped gift. Gifting done well means the feeling of anticipation rivals the fun of the big reveal – and folks on both ends of the gift-giving equation will win with the latest new-to-the-world invention from American Greetings. Zippy Cutes™ combine the convenience of a gift bag, the fun of a musical surprise, and the bonus of reusability.

Add some real zip to your gifts with Zippy Cutes! This quirky new line of gift bags features funny photo animals on bold, patterned backgrounds. These bags are great for showing off your presents because they’re not only reusable—they’re musical, too! Just unzip the zipper to hear upbeat, popular songs. With Zippy Cutes, wrapping gifts is easy and so much fun.

There are two designs in the collection--a sombrero-topped Chihuahua against a taco background and a too-cool, sunglass-wearing kitten against a wall of gumdrops.

“Bag it, zip it, gift it—it can’t get any easier to package up a present,” said Carol Miller, vice president of corporate innovation at American Greetings. “The colorful artwork, the catchy music, the spacious inside, the ease of the zipper closure, and the fact that it’s reusable make gift wrapping a snap with Zippy Cutes.”
