Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes spend $6,000 on wrapping paper


Herald Sun - Australia

Families may be pulling in their belts this Christmas - but not Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who are reported to be spending $6,000 on wrapping paper.

The celebrity couple – who have a two-year-old daughter Suri together – are said to want to impress friends and family by wrapping gifts in expensive paper.

A source said: “Tom and Katie are planning to wrap each present in $60 worth of wrapping paper and then put a $140 Jay Strongwater ornament on the top.

With all the presents they have to send, they are going to be spending at least $6,000 on the paper alone.”

Last  year, Holmes designed her family’s Christmas card, sent out on behalf of her, Cruise, the couple's daughter Suri and Cruise's two adopted children Bella and Connor with ex-wife Nicole Kidman.

The burgundy, cream and brown festive card, which had a brown and burgundy ribbon trim, bore the message, "Happy holidays and best wishes for a joyous new year. Love Tom, Kate, Bella, Connor and Suri" in a brown sweeping font.

A source said: "Katie is determined to make Christmas a classy affair, and even has a different gift-wrap design for her family, friends and business associates."
