    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!

    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.
