I think this year is the last I can get away with my own handwriting on the gifts from Santa. I was thinking the solution is a personalised stamp from Santa (as in, I stamp it direct onto the wrapping/tag). Anyone seen anything like this please?
I've trawled Not On The Highstreet and googled, but not come up with anything just right. All that I've found that is personalisable is the 'from ...'. I want to personalise the 'To ...'. So, 'To Johnny, <picture of Santa>, love Santa.'.
If you want the 'To ' bit because you have more than one dc then I have heard that he always wraps all the presents for each dc in different paper, so one has red, one silver, one gold etc. Then he doesn't need to write their names. We wrap their presents in various different types of paper because we don't have the planning that he does!
I quite like the sticky labels idea, but I felt the stamps looked a bit more North Pole authentic. Not ruling out the idea though, thank you.
Severus, I am loving the idea of a personalised sack. Definitely doing that! Hm, I think I still want labels on the presents though. Plus need to allow for the odd gift that might not fit in a sack. I only do four gifts from Santa per person (want, need, wear, read), but want everything presented perfectly, and organisedly!
3bunnies, yes, it will be because we will have two DC next Xmas, but I also do presents from Santa to DH and myself so DC doesn't wonder Santa neglected us, so I do need to clearly have distinction between the four gift sets. I was already planning on doing different paper next year, but I'd really love their/our names on the gifts too. I've researched personalised wrapping paper and it is £££££.
butterflies, any chance you can link to the Etsy seller please? Thank you.
Just search for custom ink stamp on etsy, there must be 50+ sellers. I got mine a couple of years ago, can't remember which seller. Most are address stamps but fully customizable so you can just put whatever you like (mine also inks itself which is even better).
