This paper is gorgeous and good for any occasion/gender to keep on hand. For some reason, everywhere both in person and online during this pandemic is out of birthday wrapping paper that isn't kid oriented. This is one of the best deals where you're getting a good amount at a decent price. However, this paper isn't as thick as typical Hallmark paper (like Christmas with that sheen to it) and it creases just folding it over to wrap. If you have a box or item with sharp edges, be prepared for the edges to either poke through the corner or the outside design to scuff off. For that reason alone, I wouldn't use the solid side because the scuffed edges will make it look cheap. Make sure your tape is where you want it because it WILL pull the design off of it if you have to adjust it. Again, beautiful paper and I'm thankful to have been able to get it with quick delivery but too many issues with creasing, scuffing and comparable thickness of paper from the same company to go higher than a three.
