Santa ALWAYS uses different paper!!!!!!!!

Now here's a follow on - does Santa wrap stocking fillers???

At our house, Santa does not put things in the kids stockings, but we do. I had wrapped it last year, and I think I will just leave things unwrapped so that the kids can just take out, and see what they get. After all the unwrapping of the gifts, they get tired of unwrapping.

Sometimes Santa leaves at least one gift unwrapped, but as she gets older, the mystery of what is under the paper is more fun. I usually leave some paper out for Santa, in case he needs it, but I don't buy any 'specific' paper just for him. She is happy with whatever is under the tree, it doesn't matter who it's from, or how much is under there. Also, the stocking stuffers get wrapped too. She writes to him and on Christmas Eve he leaves her a note by his empty cookie plate.

One year she was literally shaking with excitement while opening her gifts. I had never see her so excited and it was great!

i agree....as i wrote above....over here the kids believe that all the presents they get are from santa or the christkind....I do it like that too....because I grew up like this...I never knew it any different I like the "one gift from Santa" tradition, too...it is cute

I buy several different rolls of paper, but I rarely write Santa on them as my daughter just tears the paper and then asks who its from. So she doesnt really pay much attention to the wrapping, so its not a problem in my house. Usually the stocking is a 'gift from santa' as Santa fetches all the presents from mam and dad.

When the kids were young and not old enough to notice the different papers, I just wrapped everything in the same paper. Once they got a little older, I started using different paper for Santa. Now that all my kids no longer believe, I just wrap everything in the same. And I also will leave something unwrapped if it's to big or to hard to wrap.

I'd love to hear this!

I already responded to thsi post, but i wanted to add something. Since my step sons are grown up now, the gifts are just wrapped and tagged from my husband and i. My husband and put one gift for eachother under the tree, and tag it from santa. The rest of the gifts we buy, we tag from eachother.

I don't have any little ones but growing up Santa always wrapped our gifts. Sometimes he used the same wrapping paper as my mom, sometimes not. No big deal either way for us kids. Santa didn't wrap our stocking stuffers though.
