Haha me too, anything that comes in a box looks amazing wrapped naturally, but since 99% of the presents I get are weirdly shaped I end up sticking it on any old how. Doesn't help that usually I do my wrapping with a large mug of mulled wine next to me on the floor

I missed intoxicated wrapping last year being pregnant. I can't wait to get merry doing my wrapping this year again!
Lol me too!

I don't do a theme.. Just pick some paper I like and Im happy. Usually choose 3 or so different kinds for family presents under the tree, then the girls each get their own wrapping paper from Santa (makes it so much easier for me to know which pike to put them in!)

Both DD's been bought now, DD1 has red/pugs from Studio and DD2 has beige/santa/reindeer from card factory. I wanted Peppa but it's all red so decided against it, to stop their piles being mingled.

No theme this year as unfortunately i just dont have the time anymore to search out the best gift wrap and make it all look matching and pretty.

The kids wrap is from matalan this year- pink paper with angels for DD and red/brown paper with elves for DS. Picked for no other reason than it would be super easy for DD to tell which was hers lol

Ordered my paper yesterday :-)

Nutcracker set from Matalan for all the adults/other kids.

Got the girls two separate papers both red (one with bears and one with cars) also from Matalan.

I usually choose a roll for each person in the house so we don't have to label them. Every one else gets their presents wrapped from my huge stash.

I'm currently raging because not enough shops online have their Christmas stock out yet

I'm really struggling to find nice paper for the kids this year. Last year DS has avengers and DD had pink fairy. Even matalan hasn't got much!

Seems to be a brown paper/reindeer theme this year. Bought 3 rolls of one kind from matalan (brown paper with gold reindeer) and 2 from home bargaibs (brown paper with patterned reindeer) think the patterned one will be for DD from the main man and the othet for her and everyone else. I have about half a roll left of tartan santa paper from last year i may use for some folk if i run out.

Okay, ahem, I am Lucy and I am a wrapping paper addict. I don't do a theme, I like loads of different colours and styles, I LOVE ribbon and I *may* have my own wrapping box with ribbons, bows etc, a drawer for Christmas cards and probably no less than about 25 rolls at one time
Since I already have so much wrap I shouldn't buy more, but I will. I literally can't resist a lovely wrapping paper. I have a good selection of ribbon and string and things, the paper and ribbons have to coordinate. But under the tree I love all the colours together. And if I find a paper I like, I usually buy more than 1 roll, so I still have 2 rolls of the candy stripe from wilko which looks awesome. xx

I also have a box of ribbons! Ribbons, twine, stamps and ink! It’s my little box of delights, haha!
