During the season I usually have between 3 - 5 rolls. I buy whatever catches my eye. No color coordinating and no themes. I do buy "cute" for the kids, but for the adults I lean towards an "elegant" style. I buy a pack of jingle bells and put them on the presents. Nothing really fancy, just a little something extra.

I love wrapping paper! I have a drawer full of it in my closet, but I like to try to finish the opened rolls first so that I don't have 25 rolls awkwardly unrolling in the drawer. I usually use 5 or 6 within the family and for good friends, and then I pick a few (usually simple or solid colors) to use for work acquaintances/gift exchanges.

Like...four or five I think. Maybe more, I typically have some left from the previous year, but I still end up buying more.

I use five different types of wrap and alternate them on each present.

So many lol

For those special presents I use the holographic foil... I tend to buy tons of it once it goes on sale for the year after - I think right now in one of my storage closets there is at least 30 different kinds with a few multiples of each!

Stockpile anyone? lol

I just bought two new roles of wrapping paper. I fear people have been getting the same paper for several years in a row so it was time for a change ! And some things I let the stores wrap so they'll be different anyway.
