Wrapping Santa Gifts

I was talking with my cousin and my aunt the other day on FB when cousin's children discovered Santa's wrapping paper in among their christmas stuff. My aunt said that her kids questioned why santa's wrapping was on other gifts too and she knew she had been caught. So I was curious.


Do you wrap gifts in a seperate 'santa' wrapping paper or do you use paper that you use on all gifts? Do you hide it or have they ever noticed?

We use a santa bag. Its one of those reusable type material bags with snow fakes and I think a santa? I put the gift unwrapped into it and thats the bag that Santa leaves behind with the gift inside. Last year he got a leappad with case and games. They all went into the bag unwrapped. He thought it was so special. We sit it in front of all the other gifts so it stands out.

I try to use a dif paper when it's from Santa. Once I was questioned cause I gift from me and Santa had the same, I said " cool me and Santa had the same paper"

My kids are all older and know now except my youngest who is 9. But Santa will get a few things, clothes are from mrs Claus and candy is from the elves.
