1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I will use wrapping paper, mainly because a couple of years ago a store went out of business, and I got 50 rolls of Christmas gift wrap for $10. It may take longer, but I love the look of wrapped presents under the tree.

Artificial. Here in Phoenix it is so hot that a real tree only last a week, and I like to have mine up longer.
