What "wrapping" do you use when gifting bread?
This morning I gifted a coworker and a neighbor each with a loaf of bread that had been out of the oven for about 30 minutes. Both loaves had substantially cooled. I loosely wrapped one in some tissue paper and laid it in a large paper shopping bag with handles; this seemed to work well at keeping the crust crisp. The other I laid on tissue paper, then placed in a plastic bakery-type bag into which I'd punched many holes. I was surprised at how much condensation developed on the plastic despite the holes, and I ended up ripping a bunch of new larger holes in the bag in an attempt to let the moisture out.
For those of you who give bread as gifts, how long have you found the loaves take to cool before they give off no more moisture? And what do you wrap them in for gifting? I'm hoping to find materials that are readily available and don't break the bank. I may just have to spring for the perforated bakery bags I've seen on some bakery supply websites.
Thank you, and happy holidays :)
