    After Christmas buy up on the plain papers (gold, silver, white, cream etc) and then they can be used for birthdays through the year
    I do this and look for cheap decorations for next year. We also use the Christmas curling ribbon all year.

    Santa always uses different paper to us. DD would have clued on long ago if I used the same paper!

    The paper I use for gifts from us matches the tree. Santa uses anything.

    The kids get themed paper-tinkerbell,Minnie etc. then everyone else's presents in the same paper. So matching to a degree. I love matching neat pretty presents!!! Lol

    They don't all match but all have the same colour scheme through it's pattern so they all suit eachother. DF would never buy wrapping paper so I wrap his presents that aren't for me and he just uses the same as mine!

    I try for the same, its more ordered for me which I like. But this year we went through the 8 metres of that already so I went and bought different but matching to finish off.

    I must be in the wrong place. I don't have a tree, just some decorations on the hallstand. I buy cheap random wrapping paper from big w, $5 for 10 sheets , a book of sticky labels for gift tags. The presents are in big Christmas bags in the lounge room until Christmas Day. No little people at home to get in to the bags. I have never thought of colour co-ordinating my Christmas presents or anything else. I live in the moment perhaps too much. Marie.
