I am starting to buy presents early so that I am not breaking the bank all at once in december. I got this paper so that I could wrap as I went. I have wrapped about 10 presents so far and I love this paper. It is reversible and all the sides complement each other pretty well. It is thick enough that it doesn't rip on corners but not too thick that it is hard to work with. The only issues I have had is when you go to use the reverse side (the side that is on the inside or the roll that you can't see when you aren't unrolling the paper) is that since it is rolled in on itself it makes it a little harder to tape down in the first wrapping step if you are wrapping alone. That is no fault of the papers' though that is just the way it has to be rolled.
