  • I do...this year I am wrapping the Santa gifts in different paper too. I can remember as a kid getting a gift from my parents and it was in the same paper as Santa's gifts were. LOL!

  • I don't wrap the big gift I do wrap the stocking stuffers and they are always in different paper

  • I'm not sure yet if we are or aren't.We get paid on teh 23rd and I don't know about that check yet. Currently we have 20 bucks left in our bank account and my husband is upset that I don't have a single gift while the kids are taken care of and I probably spent at least 40 bucks on him but I've gotten nothing for myself nor has he had a chance to get me anything... not that I'd know what to tell him. I try to tell him what jewelry I like and it's expenseive or he just never gets the hint athat I'd like soemthing pretty from him... so I doubt we'll have money to buy paper to wrap the santa gifts.

  • nope. We have never wrapped he Santa gifts- they do get big pretty bows though

    The kids only get one or two each from Santa-the rest are wrapped and sitting under the tree as we get them.

  • I always use a more expensive (looking) foil wrap from Santa (even in the stockings) They always look forward to Santa (he gets a lot of the credit) and my kids are 25, 18 and 15 .... but they know they have to "believe" in Santa or he will not come! It has been a great tradition.

  • I do. I have to hid the "santa" paper from the kids. I do leave one gift unwrapped so they know which pile is theirs. This year they are each getting a stuffed animal, Mickey mouse for the 17 month old and Flounder for the 4 year old

  • I USE TO KNOW I BUY THE REAL BIG GIFT BAGS AND FILL THEM UP. I STILL WRAP SOME JUST TO SEE THE EXCITEMENT OF OPENING THEM ON THEIR FACE

  • Yes, we do. And it is different paper. I try to write different. And no presents go under the tree until Christmas Even when all three boys are in bed....... I love them not having any idea what, if anything, will be under tree for them.

  • Yes b/c just seeing my son tearing that paper off to discover the surprise underneath is simply priceless!
