Ribbons, foil stars or something else? All!

Bought or made gift tags? Bought...boring I know!

The big gifts (like the giant mickey mouse for Connor) don't get wrapped, there's usually only one or two and they are just placed under the tree. Everything else gets gift wrapped. I love wrapping and I love watching them being opened.

I usually don't do ribbon, unless I'm wrapping at my Mom's lol. Bows are hit or miss, and always store bought tags (although I've seen a ton of cute printables and handmade ones on pinterest this year! )

I have not even started wrapping yet! I might do some today though!

I use a combo of wrapping paper and gift bags. The kids santa gifts are always out put together and unwrapped as are their stocking items (my mom used tI o wrap our stocking stuff)
I use ribbon sometimes raffia and printed gift tags normally on cardstock The kids normally get bows adults just ribbon and tag!

Haven't even started yet! I usually wrap most everything. A few things go in gift bags. No bows unless it leaves our house. I use ribbon for my bows and am just too lazy to tie bows on everything! Always buy gift tags although this year I thought about printing our own.

Ribbons, foil stars or something else? No ribbons, bows or any of that fancy stuff.

Bought or made gift tags? bought..

Have you finished YOUR wrapping yet? Meh, I have only gotten shopping done for 1 person so far (SO) and even that's not wrapped yet. Though I am planning on doing it today or tomorrow.

I like using wrapping paper with ribbons and bows. I will use gift bags for odd shaped items though.

I haven't even started wrapping. My kids are waaaaaay too curious (especially DS) and wrapped presents would never last under our tree for a whole month. I will probably wait until a few days before to remove the temptation.

I use paper most of the time.

Usually we use bought gift tags, however, I don't feel like digging our Christmas box out of the garage just for gift tags, so I'm using sharpie on the wrapping paper...

No bows this year on the stuff we wrap here. Again, too lazy to get the bows out and they'll just get squished in the box we're mailing out.

I haven't even started wrapping yet. I need to wrap the stuff we're sending to Iowa soon, so I can ship that box. Everything else gets wrapped when we get to California. We can't wrap anything we're taking on the plane, so it all has to wait until we get to my parents.
