Nice, reasonably thick wrapping paper - where can you buy it?

I've seen the beautiful paper in Waterstones, but it doesn't have to be that thick (or that expensive!)

Most of the paper you can buy in rolls seems pitifully thin and last year it kept tearing.

Has anyone found the holy grail of actual NON-tear-as-soon-as-you-look-at-it paper, on a roll, in copious quantities, for not a vast amount of dosh?

Thank you fsmile

I had one roll that was particularly huge and lasted me 2 years. With EVERYTHING wrapped in it. T'was nice candycane stripe patterns too.

Lovely! Thank you for posting (and sorry about the two duplicate threads, it refused to post then they all appeared about 10 minutes later...)

I don't think I can shop at costco, do you have to be a member?

But it is a good idea for those wot can fsmile

Thanks, I will check it out smile Have been quite impressed with M&S in other respects this year.

I bought some from WH Smiths. Wasn't sure what the quality was like as it was relatively cheap (£1.80 or something like that) for a roll. It's not paper thin that tears as soon as you wrap it up.

Lidl. Beautiful thick Scandi style paper in big rolls!

Phoenix Trading wrapping paper is fantastic! Really thick, 3 or 4 metre roll and has a cutting guard on the underside.

Another vote for paperchase. I got some beautiful wrapping paper there last year and for what it is it is reasonably cheap x

Waitrose do a 10m roll for £3.00/£3.50 and have them on 3 for 2 at the moment. There are some lovely designs. I bought these

and these

The quality of the paper is fantastic.

I bought some lovely brown Kraft paper with red glittery writing over it. Also agree with Costco, the reversible paper is fantastic!

Another vote for m&s. I bought 3 rolls in a pack with ribbon and labels for £6. One was really thick, hard to wrap smaller stuff in it! It wouldn't bend very well!

IKEA are great too.

florist supply shop - giant (125m) rolls for around £10

wonkylegs Tue 08-Dec-15 14:15:29

Ikea - usually good

GlomOfNit Tue 08-Dec-15 15:00:22

Oxfam do nice kraft paper that won't tear.

Lidl wrapping paper is really good - cheap too (think it is only 99p a roll but don't quote me).
