Packing mobo/cpu combo?

Aytex

I don't have the original anti static bag

 

is wrapping the whole thing in bubble wrap okay?

any alternative "CHEAP" options?

I bought some antistatic bags really cheap to transport my GPU and RAM. Might want to be careful with the CPU but I would definitely bubble wrap and bag them all.

Well, anti-static bags are pretty cheap to get. 

 

I've sent out GPUs in just bubble wrap with no issues, but I wouldn't recommend it. Better safe than sorry.

Buy an anti-static bag, preferably ship it in the motherboard box with some protection around that in a larger box.

I'm sure there are some stores that sell them (or PC shops might have some spare if you ask). It's generally cheaper to get them from Amazon or eBay though.
