I think I have become known by my friends and family as the one who wraps presents in her son's artwork. It's cheap, easy and it seems to give them some purpose. Recently though I was sent a sample of this adhesive wrapping paper made by Hallmark.
I didn't know what to think when I first heard of it but it works very well. It's really not that sticky or anything - I had envisioned getting stuck into it like a spider web! It is tacky on the back side and in fact when I cut it I got distracted (baby stuff!) and when I came back to it I thought the adhesive wouldn't stick anymore but it did.
The seams seem to hold nicely and if the ends do need a bit of help seals are included with the roll. At $4.99 a roll I still don't know if I'm spendy enough to buy it for little kid birthdays and such but for wedding gifts and the sort it is nice to have real paper.
Want to win a roll?? Leave me a comment on this post letting me know your ideas for the best kids birthday presents (either ones you've given or received) by the end of the day Friday June 13th and I'll randomly pick a winner.
My thoughts on kids presents...books and games are best - but again my oldest is only 3 I don't have many under my belt yet! Let me know what you've found the most appreciated gifts are for your kids...
