So I notice people have two different approaches to wrapping their Hanukkah and Christmas presents.
Some people chose one or two wrapping papers for the year and all the gifts are wrapped in that wrapping paper. (picture A). While others try to wrap in as many different papers as possible. (picture B). Which one are you? Why?
I try to wrap in as many as possible. I love seeing the ecclectic mix of wrapping under our Christmukkah tree. Plus I can’t pass up a good deal on wrapping paper after the holidays so I’ve amassed quite a collection of papers.

@Meowkers: My daughters I wrapped all in the same Minnie Mouse. She loves Minnie mouse and would only unwrap it if it was wrapped in that. I had other presents wrapped in other paper and she didn’t touch them. lol

I usually do two papers but saw a friend who posted on facebook do something that I loved! She wrapped them all in brown paper, like a brown paper bag, and then have different colored ribbon and bows on them. So cute!

I usually use 2-3 different ones, I think it looks prettier under the tree that way 🙂

I like using several different wrapping papers. I prefer the more colorful look of different papers.

We use bags and boxes. We can reuse them! If we do wrap using paper it ends up being the same paper over and over cause we never use it.

My husband and I like to choose a different paper for each person we get presents for. It makes it easy to separate them out when we are giving them away, and it’s also fun! We like to choose paper that kind of “fits” the person we’re gifting =)

For years I never really cared, but once I had kids it was easier to wrap each of their gifts in seperate papers. That way we knew when to get the camera ready when we saw them reach for something that was a little more special or an odd shape. The reactions on their faces with some of them in old pictures are wonderful to have now. I continue (usually) to do it today for the most part, but now that husbands are part of the mix, I usually do the same for each side (and only use two colors or patterns).
This year I threw everyone off and used all white paper for everyone.
They were confused. 😛

Ooh, I’m definitely option C. Not because I don’t love B, but because i’m so OCD about leftover wrapping paper. 😛

This year they were all in the same paper. Most years its four to five different ones.

We tend to wrap each person’s presents in all the same wrap. This year I only bothered to buy two rolls, but usually when wrapping at my parent’s I’ll use a bunch of different wraps.

Mix and match! Granted, it’s not like I have a dozen different wrapping papers, but three or four makes a good mix.

For me, usually use 2 to 3 different kinds. Next year with little boy knowing who Santa is. Will need to get paper that is “santa” wrapped gifts while the rest are mommy and daddy paper gifts.
