I’d love to use the wraps to take my baked goods to work and share/present them on the wraps, so I don’t eat all those lovely treats by myself!

I’d love the wraps to wrap my homemade gingerbread loaf. I’ve just started baking it & my OH can’t get enough but have to keep it moist.

I’d use the wraps to send all my boys to school with their lunches so they are a bit more keen to eat my healthy packed lunches rather than want to buy stuff from the cafeteria!! C’mon you bees & hens !
