Last year I wrapping the presents in the DC's stockings for the first time and loved how it made it all last a bit longer and increased their anticipation and excitement. Having read about it on these threads, not only did I use completely different paper for the stocking presents but, as well as having pictures of Santa on the paper, the paper also said "from Santa". Has anyone seen any similar this year? I haven't but am aware that my ability to look is restricted as only go real life shopping at the weekend with DD1 who is (and always has been) far too astute for her own good but, crucially, can now read. I don't want her making the connection between me buying something in a shop and it appearing in her stocking!

Just googled for you and found done on Amazon. Quite a few to choose from.

I think I'll order the stickers you can get as they can be personalised with names.

It's not quite the same but I bought personalised tags from Not on the High Street. As I have 2 DC I bought the ones with their initials on so they could see their pile easily and then on the back it read with love from Father Christmas. They also have nice ones with "From Santa" cut out. Don't forget to buy spares for future years if you are starting a tradition!

Also my mums best tip - have two identical stockings. Give child 1 to put out and then pack other one up. Then it is a very quick job to switch them over so much less likely to get caught packing. Was an adult before I worked out how on earth she had done it.

I had these last year and some others. Will have them again this year as they went down a treat.

Here are the others I also wrapped them up as shown in the picture.

Mama Do you have a printer? You could do your own simple enough

I got a printer at work. Not sure if I can sneak in label paper though, it's all very communal.

I buy 'from Santa' paper every year. I used to always get it from BHS but for the past couple of years I have bought it from the cheap christmas tat shops that pop up for 6 weeks then disappear straight after Christmas. This year I have only paid £1 for 5m so worth having a looksmile

Thank you! I can go to a BHS later in the week and I think that a tat shop may have opened on the high st so can also look in there.

I just use normal brown parcel paper with red and white twine wrapped around it. Then I write there names on with a stencil and a marker.
