    Stoopid question but here goes

    Every year I like to co-ordinate my wrapping paper so when I give someone more than one gift, they match, plus it makes under the tree look cool too. :lol:
    For example, last year I had purple and gold, about 4 different rolls, some mainly gold with bits of purple and vice versa the year before was red, blue and silver.

    Does anyone else do this? and if so what colours are you going for this year? I haven't decided yet, I've been on the look out though, any suggestions appreciated.

    Do you like wrapping presents? I love it but I have to wait till the Music Choice channel on Sky has the Christmas songs channel and sit and do it to Christmas music :oops:

    I hate wrapping presents!!!

    I did make my own paper on year - brown parcel paper and I got a gold pen and drew swirls and stars on it then wrapped it with old curling tape. The parcels looked really pretty. (Have also seen it done with red / green paint prints with a potato cut into an xmas tree etc.)

    Wow I though I was odd. I always have matching paper, but it is always red and gold. These colours are christmas to me. This year I have plain red, plain gold, gold with a red pattern and red with a gold pattern. Peopl with more than 1 pressie can not have the same paper, and everything is wrapped wth much care and ribbons :lol:

    I also have kids paper, santa or snowmen, so a bit more flexible than you :lol:

    I like wrapping better than shopping :rotfl: :rotfl:

    LOL... very odd... I hate wrapping presents.. seems pointless because its only under the tree from when Santa delivers it (aka... DD is in bed) to around 5 am.. (when no one sees it anyways, not even me because my eyes don't work at that time in the morning).. where the paper is unceremoniously torn from the packet and tossed into a big messy pile in the middle of the living room, where mummy has to then go get a black plastic bag and dump it in the bin...

    Seems a bit of a waste of time tbh.. *sigh..

    I usually coordinate because I am Hyacinth Bucket but this year I am thinking of having a green year. No xmas cards and no wrapping paper. Instead of sending cards I am going to phone everyone I would send a card to and actually "say" merry christmas and with regards to the paper I am going to wrap the kids pressies ie Isaacs etc with recycled xmas paper but the adults are just going to get theirs out of a bag I think.

    Lou :)

    I celebrate Yule rather than xmas as my beliefs are pagan. I will wrap pressies in silver (symbolising the moon) and purple (symbolising the spirit). It still looks xmassy though! :D
