We do different paper from Father Christmas

Present from FC are wrapped in different paper here too.

Next year I need to limit the presents he gets from FC as this year it's practically ALL of them!

Yes, I am wrapping in different paper for the FC presents. Little miss clever clogs might just notice if they all have the same wrapping paper. Although my answer to that will be that he obviously bought it in the same place as we did.

Cedar last year I bought some bits with Louie in tow, I said FC had called and asked me to buy them and send them to him as the elves had run out of parts

I like your thinking Belle.
H nearly gave things away the other day by talking about going to buy stocking fillers. I had to kick him under the table to shut him up

Crap!! I didn't think about that, All of their presents are wrapped in the same paper. Last year when they didn't notice I wrapped them in different paper, this year the might notice, but I don't think i'll get away with it next year.
I have wrapped their Christmas eve presents though in a different paper. Santa's elves will have dropped them off whilst we're at the carol concert at church.

All the stocking bits are wrapped in the same paper as that's what comes from Father Christmas in out house, that include mine and H's stocking presents (just a few bits and pieces), the rest is all a mixture, we don't leave presents under the tree, they appear on Christmas morning, I don't like the thought of people breaking in and taking all the presents that are under the tree, that you hear about every year on the news, so everything is hidden until the last minute.

We wrap Father Christmas's present in paper with FC on it! then it is left on their beds

Are we the only ones who don't do presents from us? All of ours come from Santa, it was the same when I was little.
I do different paper for family/friends presents that go under the tree then do different paper for both kids.

SW - I remember when I was little asking where the presents from my parents were since everything was from Santa, so we've made sure C has some from us and some from Santa.
Chids - what a coincidence, Santa has the same wrapping paper as you!!

None of them have ever asked where the presents were from us and I never wondered when I was a kid, all my friends' presents came from Santa as well. Until I came on here I had no idea people did this.

SW all of ours were from Santa growing up.
I did separate paper from Santa, then H did some wrapping when I was in bed last night and he's used the Santa paper. Hopefully M won't notice

Growing up we had our stocking and 1 gift from FC and from next year I'm going to adopt this with L. I've gone overboard this year.

SW, all presents are from Santa here. same when I was little.
I never questioned where my presents from my parents were. Mine have never asked either.

I was out buying paper for Santa's presents last night. Also have to remember to throw it once finished and not keep it for next year as she remembered it the year after once!!!!! - This was the random thing I was going to write on the other random rememberings thread! (She also remembers sooooo many other random things!! - She definitely took my memory cells that I've lost since having her!)
Its so interesting hearing how everyone is so different with their presents and who they come from. We do a letter to Santa for a present and that comes from him and other stuff comes from whoever bought it. - Don't get the telling that Santa got everything as what happens when they stop believing in Santa?

Only the stocking is from Father Christmas, everything else - the presents from under the tree - come from us. We told her that Father Christmas can't bring all her presents otherwise he'd never get round to delivering them all. Otherwise she would ask where the presents from us to her are. My friends do it the other way and everything comes from Father Christmas but I think its caused some family tension because some of the relatives would like the children to know that they bought the presents for her. Every family does it slightly differently, don't they? Its like on Christmas day, when are you allowed to open your presents. Is it right away or do you have to wait?
