    If I wrap anything it's in recycled wrapping paper from something someone has given us or newspaper.

    Presents under the tree - all in brown paper and each person has a different coloured ribbon.
    Santa presents - each person has a different wrapping paper that is the same each year. (I stock up lol)

    Brown paper - the kind with the waxy side so its nice and thick. I hate how xmas wrap always rips on me.
    I decorate with the coloured decorative tape and bows.

    Santa wraps in xmas paper - whichever roll happens to be around.

    I like the look of nicely coordinated colours, but that never happens, I prefer a mix of colour as opposed to all the same paper.

    We must be a last stop for Santa, because he never wraps here- a gift bag, Santa sack or big bow, maybe, but never wrapping paper!

    All gifts from us to friends or family are wrapped in the same paper. Santa presents are wrapped in a different paper. This year dd has purple paper, ds blue from Santa

    I bought the DC comics themed wrapping paper pack from typo this year so all presents under the tree are in that (there's 3 different patterns) Each child's present has different coloured ribbon on it (no labels) so I know what's theirs but they don't. Santa has a totally different roll of paper

    Default Christmas present question no 2

    Any other time of the year I use newspaper too! I pick pages like the comics or cars section for boys. I try and save the wrapping paper of presents given to us too. For me though it's not so much the environmental reasons but because I'm a tightass. I hate spending money on stuff that gets glanced at then thrown out. It's incredibly wasteful.

    Eta: I got annoyed when the Sydney morning herald changed their size- the broadsheet papers were very handy.
