How do you wrap your gifts?

Meaning do you use a variety of papers for whatever reasons.....


OR

Do you use one roll until it's gone then open the next?

My mom wraps them for me, I stink at it! She uses one roll until it's gone then on to the next.

Depends on my mood. Sometimes all 1 roll. Sometimes I vary it.

I have large prints, small prints, a variety of colors...... I use whatever fits the box.... a BIG box will get a larger pattern, a small gift will get a smaller pattern etc.

I have a LARGE variety of papers to choose from. Under my tree ends up very colorful.....

I use a variety. For Santa gifts I use a different paper so its not the same as gifts from us. I remember figuring that out when I was a kid.

we use reusable stuff, like pillow caes and sheets for bigger boxes. and handkercheifs and hand towels and fabric scraps for littler. We use ribbon to tie them off.

Garrett asked me, I told me we got a % off our total bill for providing the wrapping supplies.

For santa gifts I use one type and for all the others I finish off a roll before moving on to the next one.

I use a variety but ususally with a color theme. Some years I'll use blue and gold, others red and green etc.
