    Default Christmas present question no 2

    Christmas paper

    Do use the same paper so it's all matching?
    Do you like all different papers?
    There are really people who care about something so silly.

    Different papers from different people, preferably complementing colour schemes.

    Eta - of course things like this matter!

    Agree with Betty...this is important stuff!

    I have to wrap Oscar's pressies in "blue Santa" paper, and Lucy's in "red Santa" paper.

    I never tear off sticky-tape from the dispenser, rather I cut each piece with scissors so it looks tidy.

    I never leave a "cut" edge of wrapping paper exposed...I fold it in so it looks neat.

    My children are not even close to old enough to care. But I care!!

    Santa obviously has his own paper! I bought a few 40m rolls from costco last year so santa has tons of wrap to last him hopefully 5 plus years!

    Personally I like an assortment of wrapping paper. Somehow, to me, it looks more exciting with all different coloured presents and pictures than it being all matchy matchy. I pick up a few rolls every year post Christmas.

    I hate hate hate wrapping soft toys, clothes, odd sized presents as it's impossible to wrap it nice. That's where gift bags come into play. Or I put them in another box first, then wrap that.

    I bought some cute Disney paper from aldi but I'm not using it as it's just too cute to rip and throw away lol!

    Whatever I have on hand. But Santa presents are all wrapped in the same paper and that paper is different to anything else under the tree.

    Whatever I have in the cupboard. I just make sure Santa presents don't share paper with regular presents.

    I have 4 different wrapping papers currently for presents which are all under the tree. Santa gets a totally different paper. This year i am thinking plain green with red ribbons

    I have 2 x 15m rolls which are strictly "santa paper" for this year, so each ds has their own. As for extended family, family and friends etc, I just wrap in a mixture but still a bit matchy iykwim!

    I do a scheme each year.
    Last year was green and silver.
    So bought green paper, silver paper, green bows and silver bows.
    Green paper got silver ribbon and bows, silver paper got green ribbon and bows.

    This year we are using the paper as the announcement of baby's sex. So it's bright and pale pink.
