The Sunday Comics works well for wrapping. Try a comic site! :)

Or, I have my kids draw pictures on paper. People love this!

Or get some plain brown wrapping paper and carve a Christmas tree
stamp out of a sponge or a potato and stamp away.

A fun thing to do--kids or ***s--is to make "tie-dyed" wrapping paper, with
food coloring or watercolor paints (the strongest colors will be from the
tube-type watercolors).  Watered-down acrylics might work too?

Just  fold a piece of tissue paper (or rice paper, etc.. . .  experiment) in
half about 4 times, or add an accordion fold or triangle fold somewhere, etc.,
then dip each corner and\or side into cups of slightly-watered-down food
coloring or watercolors.  You can leave some of the original white showing, or
not.

Let dry, or open carefully immediately if you can't wait--I never can! though
sometimes I iron it first to dry it some. . . and voila!  It makes beautiful
patterns of color.  Let dry, then wrap it over the gift using white paper or
another piece of plain tissue paper underneath if the packaging shows through.
(Iron the dried paper if the slight fold lines bother you.)

You can also thin your colors with *** instead of water, and they dry out
much faster.
