I think it really depends on who the gift is coming from, but I'll go with a surprise gift.

Adding a gift tag or not?

Usually I go with paper, the price dif is enough to make you go

If you are using a gift bag do you...wrap the present or just nestle it amongst some tissue paper?

I'll wrap it with tissue and then nestle in some more.

do you use the tissue sheets or the shredded stuff?

I've done both, Trish, but prefer the "hands on" approach (i.e., not clicking).

Special garments for sleeping or just any old worn-out and soft tshirt?
