When my children were younger, I would wrap each child's presents in a single color of paper. This really cut down on fighting over which present belonged to which child. Just make sure the colors are distinctly different.
I've been doing this for years & now that my kids are older, I do not put name tags on the gifts. This keeps them wondering. No body knows except for mom! I do this for my husband, too.
Each year- my oldest sister got snowflakes, my next sister got teddy bears, I got Angels and my little brother got santa wrapping paper. Saved time and we always knew who got what. It helped mom too because she could visually check off her list to make sure she had everything for everyone.
I have been wraping each of my children gifts in different paper for a few years now and it really helps cut out the problem with little brother opening sisters gifts before christmas. If he opens all him before time he has nothing to open on christmas morning. I do this on Birthday also, since their b days are 4 days apart they share a party.
