    I'm always interested in people's thoughts on this. I adore seeing wrapped gifts under the tree. Bags are much easier but, I'll find creative ways to wrap those "hard to wrap" gifts.

    If I'm the one wrapping gifts then it's wrapping paper, but if hubs is involved at all then it's bags.

    I wrap everything. I only use bags if there're multiple gifts that go together, then I still wrap the gifts.

    I wrap most of the gifts. I only use bags if the gift is to difficult to wrap, food items or of the receiver has health issues that makes opening a gift bag easier then ripping wrapping paper.

    Kids get wrapped and adults get a bag. Although last year I ran out of paper at the last minute and my older daughter got a few things in a bag...she was fine with it.

    always paper, never bags. even if its a funky shaped gift, or a few gifts that go together, it's always paper. bags just dont feel christmassy to me, i save those for birthdays and and '- day' gifts (mothers day, teacher appreciation day, etc.)!!

    I use both but prefer wrapping paper. For odd shaped items, you can use decorative tissue and ribbon to wrap with.

    I use both depending on the gift. I prefer receiving wrapped presents, but I'd much rather give people gifts in bags. Does that make me a monster? :p

    I wrap most things, and I prefer to wrap, but sometimes the gift is just easier with a bag.

    There is something magical about unwrapping a present that someone took the time and care to do in pretty paper and a shinny bow. I also enjoy doing the wrapping as well. Choosing wrapping paper is a big deal for me too, it's got to be the right one! :)

    I am not opposed to bags and use them sometimes. I'll admit, most times I do use bags , I still wrap the present inside even if it's with christmas printed tissue paper.

    I also love gift boxes !

    I love the convenience of bags but I just love the look of a wrapped gift.
