Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags?

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance?

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple?

Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags? For Christmas, I like to wrap presents. For birthdays, I usually just use gift bags.

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance? Nope, I'd rather not store it all year long.

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple? I just use the little stick on bows.

Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags? I prefer to wrap if they present is for a child. If for an adult I use a gift bag.

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance? No, Id never remember where I stashed it when I needed it again

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple? Keep it simple

I'm answering these questions pertaining to the kids...not anyone else I would give a gift to!

Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags? Never, unless it's super awkward.

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance? No, I usually buy early in the season, two super huge rolls have lasted me for all presents. One roll for each kid.

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple? Bow usually. This year, Austin wrapped, so there are very little bows or name tags. Makes stacking the presents easier under the tree anyway with no bow.

Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags? I like reusable gift bags, but I'll wrap, too.

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance? Ha. No. That would require me to be prepared. I will buy it on sale at Christmas time, though

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple? Really depends on my mood/waht I have on hand. If I'm using my mom's stuff and she has bows, I like to use them. But I'm not going to go buy bows myself

Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags? I have a ton of gift bags (still leftover from when I was teaching!) but the kids peek in those, so I wrap all Christmas gifts. Sometimes I use the bags on the gifts for others though.

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance? You betcha! I usually buy several rolls every few years. I used maybe 1/5 of what I bought last year.

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple? Usually only if I am tieing 2+ things together. The bows make it harder to stack/transport gifts, plus I am cheap.

Do you prefer to wrap or use gift bags? I prefer gift bags. I am a perfectionist on a lot of things and I am not good at wrapping presents so it bugs me.

Do you stock up on Christmas paper after the holiday when stuff is on clearance? No. I would also probably misplace it if I did.

Do you use bows, ribbons, etc or keep it simple? I like to use bows and ribbons but I don't very often.

Mostly wrapped....maybe 5 things in bags.

I don't stock up on paper...it's not expensive anyway

I use wired ribbon on almost every package...out of 100 packages I used stickie bows on about 15 packages...usually little packages.

Gift bags for adults, wrapped presents for the wee ones.

Don't stock up on Christmas supplies after Christmas -- we just don't have the room.

Simple wrapping with just the classic bow and gift tag.
