I think gift wrap is awesome. I love wrapping presents (and trying to confuse the gift receiver by getting creative with wrapping). It should be pretty and fun to open, unless of course, you’re giving a gift to a younger kid who will rip any wrapping to shreds in seconds.
Personally, I prefer more simplistic paper that can be used for a multitude of occasions (so you don’t need a million different rolls stashed away), and then spicing it up with ribbon and tags, maybe even doodles.

How do you wrap up your presents?
