    We have no scheme. Most years we forget to put tags on the presents and find ourselves about three days before Christmas cutting into the wrapping to find out who the present is for, taping it back together and tagging it.

    Our theme may be "use too much tape."

    Different, if I end up running out of one sort before the presents are all wrapped.

    I think using a couple of different papers. This year it's all leftovers from last year!

    Two different rolls with silver and mint with matching ribbons for friends and family. The children have a roll of paper each for their presents.
    It all has to be matchy. I spend way too long choosing my wrapping paper!

    Well, what is actually done and what I would like to do are two completely different things. We're still using wrapping paper that we bought after Christmas a couple of years ago. It mostly coordinates. But... what I would like to do is brown kraft paper, and a variety of coordinating ribbons, with a small ornament and a hand made gift tag attached. Maybe i would do some hand decorating of the kraft paper. DH has said I can do this after I use all the old paper... I might be cutting rather large pieces this year!

    I usually have a wrapping paper theme so while the paper might be different, it looks like it's part of the same set. I love pretty wrapping paper!

    Different paper and each child's gifts are wrapped individually with different paper.

    Santa gifts are wrapped with paper that isn't used elsewhere.

    Default Christmas present question no 2

    Always blue and silver, I don't assign a certain colour to each person.

    ETA Santa bought multicolored Mickey Mouse paper this year but it will be under my sisters tree as we'll be at her house for Christmas, so it's ok that it doesn't match 😜
