What Mumsnetters say about wrapping presents

  • "I'm doing tartan this year (a way to hit the trend without wearing it)."
  • "Last year I used plain wrapping paper and then used thick tartan ribbon and matching tags to make them look special. I bought gold and silver pens to write the tags. The paper was so cheap for a huge roll and I got lots of compliments."
  • "I make my gift tags in January every year when I take the christmas cards down. I just cut out the best pictures and slogans."
  • "I have brown craft bags that will be folded over, a white paper doily folded over that, all held in place by a small red wooden peg with a little Santa on it."
  • "Going to get the kids to use potatoes to print on the wrapping paper for the presents they are going to give."
  • "I bought some candy cane stripe paper. I am planning on thin silver ribbon, real candy canes and a glittery mini pine cone."
  • "I am wrapping my presents in beautiful Christmas-themed fabric this year. Makes a change from wrapping paper and I will then use the fabric from family presents to make a Christmas quilt for next year."
