How much effort do you put into the wrapping paper you buy for xmas?
Yesterday I went to target to buy wrapping paper and it literally took me about 45 minutes to pick it out. While doing so I watched countless people come up and grab 2 rolls and walk away. The whole time I kept thinking ...why can't I just not care what colors go with each other? To make things harder Target has two aisles of paper, so I had to keep bringing paper from one aisle to the other to check if the colors coordinated.
Unfortunately I needed 4 rolls and only got two. I just couldn't find four I liked together. So now I have cut out "swatches" from the paper I bought so that I can go to other stores to find coordinating papers.
I like to have four completely different yet coordinating papers.
I may have a wrapping paper addiction....

Hahahaha I'm like you. I buy wrapping paper that matches the ornaments on the tree or contrasts well. "santa" has paper that is never seen in my house and always has pictures of him on it.

It takes me a good minute to decide what I like and what I think the kids will like

All of our gifts come from santa, but we always wrap those few really great tings in sparkle paper.
That was my biggest issue, I couldn't find the sparkle paper that would look good with the stuff I've already picked out.
