Target and Michael's.

The stuff I got at Michael's was for my sister's gifts and I was really pleased with it... but beyond that, I thought all of this year's selections every where I looked were pretty lackluster. Most of Target's stuff was all "alternate" holiday colors. I really wanted something more traditional, but in a foil. Couldn't find anything that fit the bill.

I got mine at Target... they had some very cute designs. The best part is it is all on sale now! My store had tons of rolls on clearance yesterday. I think they cost something like $1.25! Go check them out. You should be able to get lots for cheap!

I got the paper that I used this Christmas at Hobby Lobby after Christmas last year. Really haven't seen much this year I liked. Even this year's supply at HL didn't seem as nice as previous years.

Hobby Lobby.

It's always at least half off before Christmas, so I don't have to store it all year just to use it next year

I bought brown postal paper and used my Cricut to cut out red, green and white snowflakes as well as everyone's first initials as the tag. I tied them up with red and white striped twine. I got more compliments on my wrapping than I ever had and I only spent about $4 for all of the supplies as I already had the construction paper and twine.

I will probably do the same thing from now on with different shapes every year.

Costco. I got a 4 pack of coordinating foil wrapping paper that was high quality and looked great. I had a really hard time finding Santa wrapping paper though. I hated Target's non-traditional wrapping paper colors.

Target, Kohl's, Walmart, and Hobby Lobby this year. I just pick it up when I see something I like and it's on sale.

I got the Santa paper from the Dollar Store this year.

I bought some at Target last year that was red with white iridescent glitter on it. Reindeer, snowflakes and there was another pattern. It was heavy paper, but the glitter was a stinking mess.

Next year I'm sticking to something less fancy. I did see some rolls today at Hallmark, but I thought they were just meh. I might check out HL tomorrow.

Costco, but make sure you love it. It lasts forever! My sister even commented this year "Aren't you done with that wrapping paper yet?" I have used it for 5 years straight (it is reversible, I switched every other year) and I can't use it anymore. Even my family is tired of it. Lol!

I buy mine on clearance at Target. So Christmas 2012 was wrapped with Christmas 2011 Target paper. Christmas 2013 will be wrapped with Christmas 2012 paper. (We picked up 4 new rolls yesterday.)

Target has 2 classes of paper. The $2.50 rolls, and the $5.00 rolls. The $5.00 rolls are NICE. The $2.50 rolls are cute, but basically garbage.

I didn't see much I liked this year either but found some at TJ Maxx with poodles and candy canes on it that I liked. Other than that, I have an extensive collection of wrapping paper. My patterned paper obsession extends to wrapping paper.

My paper this year was bought after Christmas last year from Hobby Lobby. LOVE it - nice and thick and it has grid lines on the back.

This year I went to HL the week before Christmas looking for an ornament and all of the paper was already half off so I bought 4 rolls for next year. Warning, though, their rolls last forever!! I wrapped somewhere between 90 and 100 gifts this year and only used 2 rolls. I bought 6 rolls this year, but 4 of them were non-traditional colors, so I am going to use them for birthdays (lime green with white polka dots, hot pink with white polka dots, black and white fleur de lis, and hot pink and white striped).

A couple of years ago, I read something in Martha Stewart Living about using neutral, solid paper for all occasions rather than buying specific paper for birthdays/weddings/xmas, etc. I switched to this method and have never regretted it.

I have a huge roll of kraft paper that I purchased online (the kind of paper used to cover packages when you ship them), and a few rolls of solid colors - white, black, gold, red, purple and turquoise are what I had when I wrapped gifts this year.

I use my extensive craft stash to make my gifts pretty and appropriate for whatever event I'm gifting for. It's much cheaper in the long run and keeps me from needing to keep and store tons of rolls of wrapping paper.

The paper that I just wrapped 2012 in?
I got it at Target last year after Christmas on clearance.

I generally go out when the stuff is half off after Christmas and buy for the next year.

I didn't do that this year. Ive got so much paper, bows, ribbons, etc that I just couldn't bring myself to buy and store any more!

I have seen very pretty paper at Hobby Lobby, too.
Hallmark stores have some nice paper as well.

I've always bought clearance Christmas wrap right after the holidays and save it for the next year. This summer I purged all the clutter I could find in the house, and pitched my gift wrap stash.

I bought a 4 pack of coordinating foil wrap at Costco this year, and it was awesome. It is heavy, and beautiful, and has a cutting grid on the back! I didn't quite use it up, but came close, so I was pleased. I'll buy my gift wrap there next year, too... and while it would be cheaper to buy it now and save it, the price was good enough that I don't feel bad about saving the storage space and buying it for full price next year.

If you like kraft wrap, the one they sell in the wrapping paper section at Hobby Lobby is really nice. I find that sometimes kraft is too thick and hard to fold, but theirs is thinner and easier to work with. It also has a sort of glossy finish on one side and a flat finish on the other.

I really wanted something more traditional, but in a foil. Couldn't find anything that fit the bill.


I found great wrapping paper at Wal-Mart this year. I bought 3 or 4 packs that had 4 coordinating rolls in each pack. All different designs with traditional colors, and every single roll was foiled. I really wasn't expecting much as far as quality went, but I was surprised to open them and find the backs had the cutting grids, and they were really thick. They looked so pretty under the tree with the light bouncing off the foil.

I will definitely hit Wal-mart first, and early, next year for paper.

I bought rolls of Kraft paper at the Dollar Tree this year. It was sold with the mailing supplies and I bought several rolls to use all year. My DS and I cut paper snowflakes to add I bought rolls of dark red and light green tulle for my bows. My packages looked so pretty! I also bought dark red with white polka dots and red and green plaid $1 rolls from Wal Mart. The quality was not the best but it was pretty and coordinated with my other packages...added a bit of color too.

I have huge rolls of plain brown Kraft paper and white paper that I use for everything. I have a tote full of various ribbons for different occasions. Every Christmas I pick a color theme for the ribbons/decorations. This year was black and white.

The plain paper was cheap and I don't have to worry about having wrapping for an occasion. I also buy brown and white gift bags and do the same thing.

I bought it at Hallmark. They had really cute Peanuts paper. I bought a couple rolls of both styles and will have plenty for next year too. It has cutting lines and is nice quality paper. I do not like wrapping gifts and having paper that makes it easier to wrap really improves my attitude about it.

I got flat packs at Christmas Tree shop because I had filled up my roll box with rolls of paper from past years, I told myself I was not allowed to buy any more rolls until those were used up and/or I had room left in the box, but really should use up those rolls first!

I ended up using the flat packs for 95% of the things I wrapped, only used it for maybe 3 items. I love the fact that the flat packs can be stored and the paper was pretty. It wasn't super thick, but I didn't need it to be for the items I was wrapping and could have dug into my roll stash if need be for that.

I think the rolls were purchased at Christmas Tree shop in the past as well as Target.

Hobby Lobby - Always! I even find bows and tags there to match the paper. I used to wrap everything in solid white paper and use red bows but I find it almost impossible to find white paper thick enough that you can't see thru it anymore.
