home alone so got last of my presents out to wrap, got everything out, just to find that I've ran out of sellotape on the first parcel.

I feel your pain. This has happened to me before - once on Christmas eve as I tipsily wrapped the dc's presents, and had to resort to using a roll of that black sticky insulation tape.

I bought a new roll specifically for present wrapping last week!

I've hidden it from dd2 who is a sticky tape monster or I'd end up with the exact same problem grin

I'm off in Home Bargains tomorrow for some lights for the little live tree my dad bought me today. Hopefully outdoor ones & I'll be able to work out how to plug them in without drilling anything hmm

I haven't used sellotape in years, I have one of those wristband dispensers - it has made wrapping so much nicer!
And I just shove a few of the refills in my trolley when they're on offer. I got 5 packs last week.
Ditch the sellotape, come to the dark side grin
