As anyone seen any extra wide wrapping paper anywhere? I have some pretty large boxes to wrap and am considering giving up and just sticking a bow on them!

Ooh I have def seen some somewhere, ridiculously large rolls (as in they were about as big as me height wise). Let me wrack my brains to see if I can remember where

Thank you! I am getting annoyed with myself. Contemplated cutting squares of paper and sticking them to the sides of the box but DH is super-anal about wrapping looking neat

Definitely at IKEA, if that's any good for you?

Pretty sure it was Poundland. Quick Google says that Tesco also does it, good luck!

Toy shops often have it, although the pattern choice may be fairly limited.

Toys r us I got some for the kiddies presents and home bargains for less child like ones, I'm super anal on wrapping too so I feel your pain!

Just saw some in wilkos.

Ugh! I went to Wilkos today. Perhaps my area is the Bermuda Triangle of wide wrapping paper. Managed to order some from Tesco and used leftover points to pay for it. I hate the pattern but I don't suppose the kids will care that it doesn't match this years 'theme'. Thanks everyone!

Gah so the Tesco extra wide is not wide enough. Ffs. Need something longer than a metre. Why is this so difficult to find?

I bought a roll of wide wrapping paper from Primark for £2 a roll.

I got some from matalan on 3 for 2 which was really wide

dementedpixie Sat 19-Nov-16 22:29:24

I saw some in B&M

I saw several different patterned extra wide rolls in the range yesterday. Would wrap up large boxes easily.

Costco does, if you have access to it

John Lewis or Home Sense.

Sainsburys do some about half as life again than normal wrap. It's only in the kids patterns through.

Palomb Sat 19-Nov-16 22:35:51

Half as WIDE again 😫

I've used disposable tablecloths in the past for really large presents.

B&m

Roll two rolls out side by side and sellotape them together.

Amazon do wide wrapping paper - I don't know how wide you have found so far but the first ones that pop up on a search on there are 99 cm by 3 m/5 m etc.
