    Also, I've just discovered making my own tags so now they can match the theme too! It's actually quite sad how excited I am about this

    I've made my own this year so it is all themed and coordinated.

    Usually I will mix and match patterns in the same colours.

    We have all different.
    Santa leaves one big present and a sack/stocking. Unwrapped.

    I would LOVE matching.... I see it in themes and think how pruuuudddy it is. Maybe ill try out whenever we use up our paper. I try not to but too much but always end up doing so... Then am stuck....

    Different here
    I have rules about how they go under the tree.
    Everything gets wrapped.
    We don't have stockings so the stocking filling presents go under the tree too.
    You can't put 2 presents that are the same colour next to each other and you can't put 2 for the same person next to each other too. Of course it is biggest present at the back to small at the front. Every present must be seen. Etc
    It usually takes a hour to set them up the way I want it.

    I use the same paper, until I need to buy more. Santa present (main one) I don't wrap and Santa stocking stuff I don't wrap either.

    Each child picks their own wrapping paper and all their presents are wrapped in the same (different to each other) then I will strategically place them under the tree so it's all nicely mixed up. Santa's presents aren't wrapped...they are left in a stocking on the kids beds.

    Mine matches.

    The presents from Santa have to be in a completely different paper though.

    I usually pick one wrapping paper for each person. So, for example, DD might have blue santa paper, DS1 might have green reindeer paper, DS2 might have purple snowflake paper, DS3 might have gold present paper and DH has white christmas tree paper.

    That way, there is a mix of colours/pictures, but the control freak in me is happy because each persons presents are all matching

    That's what we do. I love the fact that we don't have to write on a million of those xmas tags lol.

    I love these replies! Is also given me some great ideas for next year

    I live the giant rolls from aldi, they're 20m helps me keep my theme, hehe.

    Also a tip I'll share:
    After Christmas buy up on the plain papers (gold, silver, white, cream etc) and then they can be used for birthdays through the year
