Anybody having a "theme" using the word loosely

I've bought brown paper based designs and going to get some ribbon/twine.

Not feeling Christmassy so hoping that I can sit and wrap and get a bit of goodwill going!

(Stocking fillers will be wrapped in last years left overs and Father Christmas buys his own separate paper)

I've gone for classic red and gold this year as I usually go for more 'modern' silvery colours.

Got some gorgeous M&S paper, tags and bows.

I went for rose gold this year! All cheapo from ASDA grin

I always do gold, green and red in some guise. This year I think I am going for gold tissue paper with wired ribbon bows in the two accent colours (probably patterned ribbon as the paper is plain).
I do like it to look nice when the DC throw the sitting room door wide on Christmas morning, but I have to restrain myself from hiding gifts from other people (which don't match) around the corner or under the gold and red gifts that I wrapped. <obsessive>

Not just me then. Last year I did midnight blue and silver. I don't like gold but have bought some brown paper with small gold stars, brown with spots and some brown with red, white and green pattern.

Do you change your tree decorations every year too then?
Our main tree decorations are mostly gold and red so the presents continue the colours in a cascade across the room.

My tree is always red and gold (or all gold, or all red). I do theme my wrapping each year - thus year will be the same as last year as I bought so much paper; copper and navy blue. I have copper mini bells and a selection of mini baubles to attach to the (navy blue) ribbon I wrap around them.

In previous years I've done brown paper as well, with coloured ribbons, and that's very effective.

No our tree is a mis matched horror decorated by small ones. We rarely have Christmas at home either so not sure why I bother!

I always have a wrapping theme - silver and midnight blue or purple. My DM always does some variation on gold, red and green so we always know who has bought what! We both do fancy ribbons and bows, the whole 9 yards. I love nicely wrapped Christmas presents, sometimes it seems a shame to open them grin
