I'm about to finally start wrapping my Christmas gifts and was thinking. Do others do what I do.


I wrap "Santa" gifts in "Santa" paper and all other gifts in other paper. I also use a piece of the wrapping paper as a a gift tag. I started doing this when ODS was about 4 and asked "Mom, why does Santa have the same paper you do?" I just answered "Well, I guess he has good taste" LOL.


Do you make a distinction between wrapping papers?

Most times Santa's presents were not wrapped under the tree, if they were wrapped it was always in different paper.

I would always try to wrap gifts for family in different paper than the gifts that Santa brought.  Now that my kids are older, I don't mind if gifts for family are wrapped in the same paper, but I still wrap all of ds's gift in one kind and dd's in another to make it easier on Christmas morning when handing them out.

I use different paper. Have messed up quite a few times but somehow managed to pull it off. Having Christmas away from home this year so hopefully they wont remember which paper is Santas and which is not because I ran out of my paper and needed to borrow some from Santa :)
